We learned today of the passing, on June 8th, of former State Senator John Stull, who served in the legislature between 1967 and 1978. Stull served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and Korea, retiring as a Commander.
From his obituary: “After retiring from the Senate, John & Babbie moved to the Ozarks in 1979. Retirement created a new chapter in John’s life, as he and Babbie wrote articles for various magazines, traveled, and restored the historic Steele Mansion. Not long after settling in Hartville, the newly elected president, Ronald Reagan, asked John to serve in his administration in Washington, D.C. John declined; content to remain in Missouri at his home, which he christened as “Senator’s Rest”.”
