Death of a Retired Police Officer: DC 349 Robert (Bob) John Hull

It is with deep regret that we inform you of the death of a retired Police Officer, DC 349 Robert (Bob) John Hull, who died at Lindisfarne Care Home, Newton Hall, Durham on Thursday 26th October 2023, aged 78 years.

Bob had been a resident of the home since June 2023, having been diagnosed with vascular dementia, a number of years ago.

He joined Durham County Constabulary as a cadet in 1962 before becoming a Regular Officer in the Force.  His first posting is believed to have been at Bishop Auckland and that most of his service was within CID.

Throughout Bob’s life he had loved all aspects of football and had been involved in playing, managing and watching the sport.

He also had a great love of nature and in particular, bird watching.  He also enjoyed travelling and seeing new places.

Bob is survived by his wife Joan, 2 children, 2 step-children and 9 grandchildren and will be sadly missed by all his family and friends.

A planned Pure Cremation has taken place for Bob and therefore there was no funeral service.

Our thoughts are with Bob’s family and friends at this sad time.
