    Handsome and I never met in person, having served in different years at our Japan Air Force assignments–but we were great friends none the less. Such is the man we will miss so much–he was a wonderfully vibrant, fun and thoughtful man–a great loss for our unit and his family and friends. We miss him already. He joins 541 other known Fallen Eagles from the 6918th RSM/SS from Hakata, Japan–so he’ll be in the company of some of his old and new friends as he lives on in our hearts and memories forever. RIP Handsome–we’ll always hold you dear.

Our paths crossed for a year and a half (one of the best times in my life). A warm salute and a hearty toast to you Dan – and say hello to Tom, Sam, Zorro and Ron.


  22. Bob Hale condolence:

    Condolences to Danny’s wife and the Hull family, both immediate and extended, to include the brotherhood of the 6918th Security Squadron at Hakata Air Station, Kyushu, Japan (1958-1973). I was assigned to the 6918th and Charlie flight in June 1964, the year Danny left Japan on another assignment. Danny was also on Charlie flight, an ‘old timer’ and his name is sharp in my memory though my mental image of him is no longer there, having faded away due to the decades that have passed. I remember Danny as a well respected member of Charlie flight, and I’m thankful I was found and reconnected with the 6918th brotherhood in 2013, enabling me to enjoy Danny’s humor on our website—especially his banter with another Danny (brother Danny Johnson). Today many of the 6918th brotherhood mourn the loss of ‘Handsome’ Hull from this life, sad he was called home before we got to reconnect with him face to face at one of our reunions. Our hope now is to reconnect with Danny on the other side, in the presence of our Lord, Christ Jesus


  23. Bill Spencer 6918th RSM/SS - Brady AB/Hakata, Japan condolence:

    Handsome, you were one of my BEST BUDDIES during my days with the 6918th RSM/SS at Brady AB/Hakata, Japan in the early 1960s. You are truly ONE IN A MILLION and deserve the name, “Handsome.”

    My DEAR BROTHER, may you Rest-in-Peace and save me a place there in your HEAVENLY HOME. I know that you and I will be REUNITED some day (when I become a “FALLEN EAGLE”) in the KINGDOM OF GOD.

    Dear GOD, I pray that you will be with Mary Margaret and ALL members of Danny’s family during this time of extreme sorrow. Take their hands and lead them as they continue on the path to join Danny and YOU in HEAVEN. AMEN


  24. Jule and Barb ligeikis condolence:

    With our deepest condolences to the Hull family.
    Dan will deeply be missed. He was such an inspiration to our all. RIP Dan. Barb and Jule.


  25. Joe and Jan Gaske condolence:

    We are very sorry for your loss. Dan was a great man and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.


  26. Rick, Robin and Will Dunleavy condolence:

    Absolutely the funniest person I have ever met! Danny, I know you will be singing in the talent show in Heaven. “You Can Keep Your Hat On”. Thought 4th of July wouldn’t be the same without you. Then I thought, no, you will be there and I will pop a beer at Kawanis Park, look up, and know you are praying for us. Love you Handsome.
    Rick Dunleavy


  27. Yvonne and Kris Kanak condolence:

    Words cannot express our sorrow. Danny was such a wonderful person. I have such fantastic memories of him and all of the Hull family. To say he’ll be missed is an understatement. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.


  28. George & Linda Miller condolence:

    Condolences and our prayers to Mary Margaret and the Hull families. Danny always had a smile and good words for everyone, a spark to our basketball team and a joy to be with. After one of our class reunions many of us met at the bar, it was a fun filled time of banter, jokes and remembering all of our good high school times. Danny, you will be missed.

    My heart goes out to the family! God knows the pain we experience when we lose our dear loved ones. He even views death as an enemy!

  45. Arthur Mantzouris condolence:

    Id like to share my condolences with the Family at this time. And let you all know that God will eliminate death and all of its effects, as we read in 1 Corithains 15:26 which reads: And the ladt enemy death is to be brought to nothing.

    Another promise that God gives through his Son, Jesus Christ is found in John 5:28,29 which we read saying: Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those who are in the memorial tombs will hear his voice amd come out.

    So we see from just these two passaves that God will do away with death and also bring back our dead loved ones.

    Now you maybe wondering. Where will they live? Well, we dont have to wonder, where? We just need to look into the Bible at Psalm 37:29 which reads: The righteous will posess the earth and they will live forever on it.


Please share your thoughts ...
