Surrounded by his loving family, John Arlos Hulsey, 72, entered into rest on November 5, 2015. He was born on July 1, 1943 in Indio, California.
He is survived by the love of his life of 52 years Judy Hulsey. John and Judy were blessed with three daughters Jackie Cleary, Johnnie Howard (husband Todd), and Jamie Gunter (husband Matt). As his heart was always full with his daughters love he was once again blessed with seven grandchildren; Michael Cleary (wife Amy), Brittany Bungum (husband Matt), Nina Macias (husband Andrew), Sammy Herron (husband Chris), Desirea Cleary, Jessica Howard (Fiancé Robbie Geerlof), and Kyle Howard.
Everyone was aware when the great-grandchildren entered the room as his face lit up at the sight of Myka and Kade Cleary, McKenzie Bungum and Savannah Herron. John was an amazing brother to his two siblings Troy Hulsey and Valerie Robertson.
John was a life-time resident of Manteca. He was a proud Buffalo as he graduated from Manteca High School in 1962. While attending Manteca High John was on the swim team and the dive team but most importantly he met his high school sweet heart and future bride Judy as he followed her to the swimming pool 53 years ago. After high school John joined the military through the United States Air Force where he truly believed in their motto “integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all that we do.” John took all that he was taught through the United States Air Force and started his career protecting his own city as a Manteca Police Officer; he retired after 15 years of service. While protecting his city John never missed a moment with his daughters even if it meant volunteering for every Girl Scout event, he was always there to make the moments special. John was never one to slow down, as retirement approached John kept busy owning and operating Powerhouse Arcade, Eye Watch Security and Karaoke DJ’ing where he was well known at any local hot spot in Manteca. As his grandchildren were born throughout the years he became the best papa; always getting into mischief, telling the best stories, and truly loving them unconditionally. John will be remembered for his fun loving outgoing personality, his zest for life and his huge teddy bear heart. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him and loved him.
If John has touch your life, please join us for a celebration of life service on Friday, November 13, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at the M.R.P.S. Hall (Ball room), 133 N. Grant Street, Manteca, CA.
