Edwin Emory Cull Jr.

Edwin Emory Cull, Jr., beloved brother, uncle and grand-uncle, passed away at the Scandinavian Home in Cranston on July 5, 2016. Born on July 29, 1924 to Edwin Emory Cull Sr. and Natalie (Holm) Cull, Emory grew up in Providence and attended Hope High School. He served in the Army Signal Corps in the Pacific during World War II, and returned stateside to graduate from URI. Emory always had a fondness for children, and he worked as an elementary school remedial reading specialist for many years. Upon retirement, he volunteered for many additional years in the Cranston schools. He was always ready to entertain with a joke or a story. Emory enjoyed working on old cars and owned two classic models at one time. He also loved skiing, swimming, sailing and hiking – anything outdoors and in nature, and was a longstanding member of the RI Hiker’s Club. Emory is survived by his sister, Natalie Joslin, his nieces Holly Joslin, Jennifer Joslin and Laurie Manory, his grand-nieces Cooper Warner and Hannah Ornas, and his grand-nephews Griffin Warner and Dylan Ornas. Emory's funeral service will be held on Saturday July 16, 2016 at 11:00am in The Butterfield Chapel 500 Pontiac Avenue Cranston. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service beginning at 10:00am. Internment will follow in Swan Point Cemetery 585 Blackstone Boulevard Providence. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Red Cross 105 Gano Street Providence, RI 02905.
