FREMONT – Jay B. Hull, 41, died unexpectedly on July 8, 2010, at his home in Fremont. He was born in Haverhill, MA on June 14, 1969, and grew up in Newton. Jay was graduated from Sanborn Regional High School in 1987, and from NH Vocational Technical College in Stratham.

A skilled mechanic, Jay was the owner and operator of Hull Automotive Services on Rte. 125 in Kingston, for the last 12 years. Formerly of Charlotte, NC, and Raymond, he had been a resident of Fremont for the last 10 years.

Jay was also a talented race car driver who through the years raced in several different divisions, including Late Models, Super Stocks, Street Stocks, Mini Trucks, and Roadrunners. A list of the tracks he raced at includes Lee USA Speedway (NH), Star Speedway (NH), Hickory Motor Speedway (NC) and Oxford Plains Speedway (ME).

He was also a member and avid fan of NASCAR, and crewed for teams on the American-Canadian Tour, in the old NASCAR Sportsman Series and elsewhere. Most recently, Jay was building a Late Model for Modified driver Andy Seuss to drive on the ACT Late Model Tour and in the 2011 Oxford 250.

Jay was a man with a big heart and supported many charitable organizations involving children including Make-a-Wish and Victory Junction. He once befriended a terminally ill child and took him to see many races. He also flew the colors of the Girl Scouts on one of his racecars when he realized that cheering for a racecar could make those young fans happy.

He is survived by his parents, Harry B. and Janice M. (Comeau) Hull of Clermont, FL and formerly of Newton; three brothers, Jeffery T. Hull of Glenn Dale, MD, Harry B. Hull II and wife Lauren of Auburn, and Kenneth Hull and wife Karen of Weare; his sister, Sharon Tonas and husband Costas of Fremont; his nieces and nephews, Shaun Hull, Zachary Hull, Amanda Hull, Brittany Tonas, Cassandra Tonas, and Alexandria Tonas; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A Memorial Service was held on July 17, at Christ Episcopal Church, Exeter. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations may be made in his memory to either the American Bullmastiff Association (ABA) Rescue Service at P.O. Box 300, Templeton, MA 01468, in memory of his beloved dog Richie, or to Victory Junction, a NASCAR camp for children with disabilities, 4500 Adam’s Way, Randleman, NC, 27317.
