Dear Huls family, I worked with John from 1998 until John retired. At the time, I was only five years out of college, and I was intimidated by John's skill, experience, and blunt way of speaking. By that time in his life, John had figured out that one of his workplace roles was to teach newbies like me enough about his job that a) I wouldn't hurt myself, b) I would respect and seek out his knowledge before doing things my inexperienced way, and c) that I could contribute to company success. One time, John expressed some frustration about the constant turnover of new hires. John would teach them for a year or two or three, after which they either went on to other roles in the company or left the company, and John would begin teaching the next one. In that expression, I saw John's soft heart underneath his hard-ish shell. While I also moved on to other roles in the company, John remains a model for me, and I try to pass along what he gave me: a high work standard, a genuine care for fellow work members, and of course a penchant for fun! At this difficult time, may God comfort you, and may you happily remember a wonderful man.
