Harry Edward Shull peacefully passed away, surrounded by family on February 22, 2024. He was 88 years old at the time of his passing.

Harry was born in New York City to Edward Madison and Mary Rose (Pipitone)Shull on December 5th, 1935.  He is survived by his three sisters, Beverly Lynch, Lorraine Levanti and Dodie Wolert.  Preceded in death by his parents Edward and Mary, sister Doris Vought and the love of life, his best friend Gail Shull.

Harry served four years in the United States Navy. He held several jobs throughout his life before owning his own limousine business and would love to share tales of all the famous people he met. Harry’s favorite story was that of Al Pacino who grew up in the same neighborhood and shared several mutual friends. Harry would come home and share very animated stories of he and Al’s childhood in The Bronx.

His family was a great source of both pride and joy. Father of three children, Randy Shull and his wife Linda, Donna Marini and her husband James and Brian Shull. Grandfather of Matthew Marini, Jillian Marini, Justin Marini, Robert Shull, Gabriella Shull, Samantha Shull and great grandfather of Harper Marini and Blake Marini. Harry loved spending time with them all, especially on weekends visiting with his “furry daughter” Chloe.

During his final years he moved from Glendale to Gilbert where he resided at Verena at Gilbert. He made many friends there, becoming quite popular and loved by both the residents and staff. He really enjoyed playing poker, Thirsty Thursdays and listening to the live entertainment.

He took pleasure in the simple things in life, watching the beautiful sunsets of Arizona, the clouds passing by or would love to estimate the height of a jet flying overhead. Essentially just being outdoors made him happy.

Harry also loved watching old movies and documentaries. Western movies were his favorite genre and anything featuring Clint Eastwood or John Wayne kept him very entertained, as well as all things related to World War II or extraterrestrials.

He was definitely “One of a Kind” and will be sorely missed by all.

  • My uncle was certainly one of a kind. He was a lovable character, a caring man. My love to whom he leaves behind.

  • Uncle Harry you are going to be so missed.
    I know you are being welcomed home by so many. I can hear the cards being shuffled, the change hitting the table and we cant forget the dominos. The laughter and smack talking must be deafening lol. Give everyone a hug for us. We love you. Rest easy

    Remember Uncle Harry was definitely loved by everyone. His favorite nickname was Dirty Harry. I remember him telling me about all the different people he drove for with his business. He will be missed by everyone. Love to my cousins, Randy, Donna, Brian, and their families.
