BERTRAND HULL Aug. 10, 1925 - Sept. 5, 2013 Bertrand F. Hull, known as "Pinky" to his friends, a beloved husband, father, brother and friend, made his transition Sept. 5, 2013. Born in New Orleans, Pinky was a family man. His family and friends meant everything to him. He had a good life. Fibbing about his age, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps
at 17, serving in Saipan and Iwo Jima during World War II
and driving an amphibious tank. He tied steel as a young man and worked in the gaming industry for many years, where he met, Jeri, the mother of his children. He saw the best of "Old Las Vegas" working at the Last Frontier, Binion's Horseshoe, The Thunderbird, Circus Circus and during the "Rat Pack" era at the Sands. The things he loved most in life were Maxine, his children and family, playing cards with his friends at Muni Golf Course and Sam's Town, and often talked about how amazing it was that there were more galaxies in the universe than grains of sand. He was not a complicated man. He lived life with kindness and grace surrounded by love. He is survived by his wife, Maxine Hull; his daughter, Bunny Hull; his son, Jeffrey Hull; his sister, Patti Stava; brother, Robert Reis; granddaughter, Courtney Heptner; and stepsons, Michael and Kenny Heptner. Bertrand "Pinky" Hull will be missed by many and loved throughout eternity. His celebration service will be at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at King David Memorial Chapel, 2697 E. Eldorado Lane, Las Vegas, NV 89120.
