Eric A. Hult

Eric A. Hult, 58 of Corwith, formerly of Belmond, passed away on Friday, July 27, 2018 at University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City.

Memorial services for Eric Hult will be held at a later date.

Eric Alan Hult was born June 17, 1960 in Dixon, Illinois to Edwin Hult, Jr and Margaret (Pottinger) Hult.

Following high school graduation, Eric enlisted in the United States Navy. Following his honorable discharge from the service, he attended police academy in Oklahoma.

Eric served as a police officer in the Chicago and Rockford, Illinois areas alongside his K-9 unit “Ponza.” Eric and Ponza retired to Wautoma, Wisconsin where he continued as an officer for a short time. He later worked in security with DHL, Securitas (at Eaton Corporation in Belmond) and for Allied Barton.

Eric was a jack of all trades, and master of none, but to his wife Peggy, he was known as Superman! He enjoyed flying small engine airplanes, being a Ham Radio operator, working on cars and chasing storms (sometimes in an airplane). He was known to fix up bicycles, salvaged air conditioners, snowblowers and lawnmowers to give away to other people who needed them.

Eric loved Little Debbie’s, the original Star Trek series, sitting on the front porch with a cup of coffee in the morning and learning about new things. Recently, he became interested in learning about locomotives.

Eric will be lovingly remembered for his quiet faith in God, for putting his family and his children first, for encouraging them to follow their dreams and to research how to achieve them.

Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Peggy of Corwith; his children Ashley Fosberg of Corwith, Korrin Margaret Hult of Noblesville, Indiana, Daimon (Elizabeth) Hult of Fort Bragg, North Carolina and Aaron (Mercedes) Hult and their son, Aaron, Jr of Belmond; sister Lori (John Pafford) Nehls and daughters Stephanie and Courtney; brothers Darwin, Greg and Brad; “special daughter” Alisa Chaisitti; along with numerous extended family.

Eric was preceded in death by his mother.
