John Hull died on Tuesday 28 July 2015, three months after celebrating his eightieth birthday with family and friends.
He had a serious fall at home the previous Friday and, despite the best of hospital care, he did not recover.
He is greatly mourned by his wife and five children, and the hundreds of academic colleagues and friends who found him to be both a
scholarly and a personal inspiration. Colleague members of the International Seminar on Religious Education and Values have
been paying tributes to him as a leading thinker on religious education, and a great friend and supporter.
‘I want to thank all those of you who have sent such kind messages.
These have been a source of great strength and comfort to me and to the family.' Marilyn
