Donald M. Tully
1925 - 2018
WATERVILLE - Donald M. Tully, 92, of Waterville passed away on July 7, 2018.
He was born on Dec. 6, 1925, the son of John E. and Dora (King) Tully. He attended Waterville schools and served in the U.S. Army 106th Infantry Division throughout the European theater during World War II. Before returning to the U.S., he served at the Nuremburg trials and told many stories about that event.
Don later worked at Lockwood Mills, Atherton Furniture, and for many years at Merrill/Federal/Fleet Bank in Waterville, retiring in 1987. Don loved to walk daily and was known by many Waterville residents, especially in the downtown area. He was also a member of the Waterville American Legion Post #5. Don was also a stamp collector all of his adult life and was a member of the Waterville Stamp Club.
One of his greatest passions was dancing (and he was very good at it) which is how he met his wife, Lillian. They first met at a dance at the Waterville Legion, and enjoyed the rest of their lives together.
Don was predeceased by his wife, Lillian; brothers, Maurice Tully; Harold Tully; Robert Tully; Henry Tully; sister Harriet Tully; and his first wife, Beatrice.
He is survived by his stepson, Dan Bahr and wife, Risteen; and nephew, Harold Tully, Jr. and his wife, Manuela, of Germany; and several other nieces and nephews. A funeral service will be held on Friday, July 13, at 11 a.m., at Lawry Brothers-Wheeler, 26 Church St., Oakland.
