On Thursday, May 23, 2019, at 3:51 a.m., Rodney Wright Hulett passed away, surrounded by family.
Rodney was born on August 13, 1959, the son of Lawrence W. and Freta Belle (Jones) Hulett. Rod married Karen Steury in Calhoun, Ill. Rod worked in the oilfield industry most of his life. He was a pump repair specialist at Harris Supply for many years and also owned and operated Hulett’s Repair and was an independent pumper for numerous companies in the area. He was strong as a horse with great work ethics, working 365 days a year, only taking off for his children’s weddings or close family funerals. He chose to show his children what a good man does, work hard, love God, provide for his family, and love everyone. He was the strongest, yet most gentle and tender-hearted man.
Rod is survived by his wife Karen Steury Hulett; daughter, Kacie (Jay) Brown; son, Dakoda (Riley) Hulett; son, Austin Hulett; son, Aaron (Kristina) Spieth; son, Chris (Nickie Powden) Steury; daughter, Melanie (Keith) Blaize; son, Jason (Shannon) Burgener; son, Justin Hicks; grandchildren, Mason Brown, Gary Brown, Ava Hulett, Alex Souder, Logan Spieth, Makela (Nathan) Wilson, Athena Spieth, Kyra Spieth, Levi Steury, Blain Fryman, Gage Steury, Zachary Vannice, Jayce Blaize, Evan Blaize, Eli Wartsbough, Andrea Burgener, Kourtney Burgener, Alyssa Blankstrom, Camron Burgener, Jett Hicks, and Trenton Hicks and baby Hulett on the way; brother-in-law, Terry (Tina) Price; nieces, Holly (Don) Osteen, Rachael (Todd) Russell, Kelsie Russell, Autumn Russell; and nephew Denver Osteen.
