Obituary
OBITUARY

Alfred Fredrick Hulsey of Robertsville, MO, departed this life at his sister’s home in Robertsville on November 12, 2010, having reached the age of seventy-seven years, three months and three days. Alfred was born in Robertsville on August 9, 1933, son of Charles Edward Hulsey and nutria Berniece Hulsey nee Bland.

Alfred is survived by three brothers, Marvin Hulsey and wife, Delores, of Robertsville, Sam Wesley Hulsey and wife, Deloris, of Washington, MO and Earvin Hulsey and wife, Lucille, of Robertsville; by three sisters, Sherlean Atchison of St. Louis, MO, Carletta Hulsey of Robertsville and Verla Perkins and husband, James, of Robertsville; by his sister-in-law, Martha Hulsey of Robertsville; by many nieces, nephews, great and great-great-nieces and nephews, cousins, other relatives and many friends.

Alfred was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Nutrie Hulsey; by four brothers, Lenzie Bland, Charles S. Hulsey, Harold C. Hulsey and the rev. Charles “Sherwood” Hulsey; and by two sisters, Dorothy Generally and Loretta Hulsey.

Alfred was a Christian and life long member of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church in Robertsville, MO. Alfred quit school at a young age to help support the family. He worked at various jobs including working for Bremmor and Meyers Dairy Farms, farming their own ground, helping local farmers put up hay and helping on his brother-in-law’s trash route. He was a truck driver by trade and had hauled freight for various companies for over thirty three years, as well as owning his own dump truck. He was also a past member of the Teamsters Union. He was a great mechanic and often was called on to work on tractors for others. Alfred loved to farm and raising cattle and hogs was a favorite pastime. In younger years, he had enjoyed going rabbit and squirrel hunting. Alfred loved cats and a stray cat never went hungry at Alfred’s. Alfred had a keen sense of humor and many wonderful memories have been created with his family. Although he had no children of his own, he loved his many nieces and nephews dearly and he always had time to spend with them.

A devoted and loving brother, brother-in-law, uncle, great and great-great-uncle, cousin and friend, he will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved him.
