  • Dear “neighbors”, Read the news of Kim’s passing in the morning paper, so sent the obit news to the rest of the Tulls, who I know join me in loving greetings to each of you at this time. The Tulls and the Askins kept the ole 200 block of North Franklin hoping there for more than a few years.

    Dear Kim…can’t believe that long, lanky, gentle, always willing to lend a hand guy is gone. Much love to each of you as you celebrate his life — sharing memories of the good times. There were many.

    Peace and Love, Barbara Tull [Craig in Castro Valley, CA; Steve in Chad, Africa; Christy in Clintonville, O; Jim in Concord, MA; Anne in Clintonville; Dave died; me, remarried, in WillowBrook Village, Del.]

  • To all the Askins family,

    I’m very sorry to hear about this, and my mother has definitely spoken for all of us Tulls.

    It has been so long but word of Kim’s passing brought back to me great memories of our youthful days carousing the neighborhood and town. I’ve not spent much time in Delaware for a long while now, but I remember you all and always hope to bump into you again sometime. We had some good times back then, as kids, and I’m sure we can catch up on some great stories of where we each went from there.

    Take care,

  • Kim always made me laugh until my stomach hurt. We had a lot of fun times learning to drive and a lot of good times out around Alum Creek as it was being built. That old Gray 1963 Chevy that Kim had took a lot of abuse and you could not hurt it . Being chased out of the Hardin Lane Grave yard was a lot of fun , Too ! I will miss you brother and my sincere condolences to all his family!

  • So sorry for your loss. I saw Kim a few times at OWU. I did not know he was sick….best to your families

  • Kim .I loved you for alot of years.but you always put yourself ahead of others. You would never acknowledge we had a daughter. I would have done anything for you.You were always in my thoughts.Wished I could have spent time with you in the last years. I hope you find in heaven what you couldn’t find on earth.Till we meet again on the other side.I will miss you.God Speed.

  • Good times as a youth playing with the askins boys. If you were trying to get a game started and you got one then you always got three. Sorry for your loss my friends.

  • Dear Colleen and Britt, I am so sorry in being so late with condolences. I don’t get the Delaware paper and and lax in checking obituaries. I wish you and your families peace on Kim’s passing. He is always with you- because Heaven gained another Guardian Angel. What a neighborhood of friends we had! Always someone to play with. How lucky we were to have grown up in that time period. Thinking of all of you and keeping you close in prayer. Kathie Wyant Wray
