William “Bill” Hulse Sr. of Aquebogue died after a brief illness on December 14, 2017. He was 75 years old. 
He was born on Dec. 22, 1941 to Jay A. and Catherine (Mulligan) Hulse and grew up on the family farm on Hulse Landing Road in Wading River. He graduated from Riverhead High School in 1959 and earned an Associates degree in Agriculture from Farmingdale College.  He farmed potatoes with his brother, Jay, partners in Hulse Farms, Inc.  Bill most recently served as the Manager of the North Fork Preserve until his retirement in 2013.
Bill met his loving wife, Marion (Janlewicz) of Aquebogue, through mutual friends at a dance shortly after high school. They married Nov. 22, 1964 and recently celebrated their 53rd wedding anniversary.
Bill was known for his big smile, even bigger laugh, dry wit and easy-going manner.  He was a proud member of the Jamesport Fire Department and enjoyed boating, snowmobiling and doing Sudoku puzzles. He was a loyal Mets and Jets fan, and kept busy working outdoors. He and Marion enjoyed clamming, traveling, and socializing with friends.  Bill was devoted to his three grandchildren, and attended every game, concert, award and event.
He is survived by his wife Marion; his daughter, Lori M. Hulse, her husband, Michael Verity, grandchildren Cole and Regan; his son, William J. Hulse Jr., his wife Michelle Stark Hulse and granddaughter Alexandra. He is also survived by four siblings.
Visitation will be held at Alexander-Rothwell Funeral Home in Wading River on Thursday, Dec. 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A Mass of Christian burial will take place on Friday, Dec. 22 at 11 a.m. at St. Isidore RC Church in Riverhead. Interment will follow at Sound Avenue Cemetery in Aquebogue.
