Sunday Star - - OBITUARIES -

VERO BEACH, FLA. — John Fran­cis Hulse­man, 87, of Vero Beach, Fla., died peace­fully Tues­day, Oct. 9, fol­low­ing a brief ill­ness.

De­voted hus­band of 64 years of the late Ge­or­gia Still­well Hulse­man. Beloved fa­ther of James of Lake For­est, Ill., John David (Angie) of Ox­ford, Md., Peter (Su­san) of Port­land, Ore., Jen­nifer of Carmel, Calif., Ge­orge (Tracy) of Franklin, N.C., and Chris­tian of Portsmouth, N.H.. He is also sur­vived by 23 grand­chil­dren and nine great-grand­chil­dren.

John was pre­ceded in death by son Leo, brother Robert, and par­ents Leo J. and Dorothy Hulse­man.

Born in Chicago on Dec. 29, 1930, John at­tended New Trier High School in North­field, Ill., and Mar­quette Uni­ver­sity in Mil­wau­kee, Wis., where he ma­jored in busi­ness ad­min­is­tra­tion. He was drafted in Oc­to­ber of 1952 and served in the Mil­i­tary Po­lice Corps for two years be­fore be­ing trans­ferred to the Army Re­serve.

Be­fore leav­ing for ser­vice, he mar­ried Ge­or­gia Still­well, who would re­main his life part­ner un­til her death in 2016.

Fol­low­ing mil­i­tary ser­vice, John re­sumed his ca­reer at Solo Cup Com­pany, the busi­ness his fa­ther be­gan. Work­ing pri­mar­ily in the com­pany’s pa­per di­vi­sion, he launched new cup plants in Fed­er­als­burg, Md., and Be­len, N.M., and helped guide the com­pany into one of the largest food­ser­vice pack­ag­ing com­pa­nies in the world.

John was a de­voted hus­band and a lov­ing fa­ther. Dur­ing his 87 years, he lived life with class and dig­nity. He was larger than life, a true gen­tle­man with a world-class sense of hu­mor and a zest for life. An avid golfer and ten­nis player, he will surely be missed by his many friends.

John was ac­tively de­voted to his Ro­man Catholic faith and most re­cently a mem­ber of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Vero Beach.

A pri­vate fu­neral mass will be held at Saints Peter and Paul Ro­man Catholic Church, 1210 S. Wash­ing­ton St., Eas­ton, MD 21601. There will also be a pri­vate grave­side ser­vice for im­me­di­ate fam­ily mem­bers.
