John Francis Tully, 65 year old loving father, passed away on April 6th , 2020 in the peace of his own bedroom. John was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey on November 25th, 1954. John moved down to Madeira Beach, Florida in 1968, where he started his life and family. John was the father of 7 loving children. Not only was John their father, he was their hero because he saved them from the foster care system. If anyone knew John, they knew how he would take the shirt of his back for any of his kids. Anyone who knew him knows that he could light up a room with his silly, repeated jokes. John was the hardest working man I ever met. God saw how hard John worked his whole life to provide for his children. Besides his kids, God was his best friend. He always told me “If you don’t have God, you are poor, you have nothing without God in your life”. My father loved God and loved his children. John is survived by his loving children: Jakob, Jacquelyn, Redmond, Jensen, Jillian, Tara, and John Tully.
