Graham Hullett – a Photographic Tribute

Image7loFrederick Graham Hullett, 1932-2012
Vicar, Biker, Diver

Graham’s passion for motorcycling and young people is indisputable. As vicar and leader of the ’59 Club’ in the 1960s and early 70s, he earned the respect and admiration of the young rockers. He also took on the extra responsibility for the football team and the sub-aqua group. He was the heart and soul of the Club.

His enthusiasm to help was indefatigable. When he joined the HDS he acted as ‘Exhibitions Officer’ for many years.

Generous, warm-hearted, and inspirational, ‘Father Graham’ was a man of faith who devoted his life to helping others. He is greatly missed.

This video is a compilation of photographs – mostly from his time at the 59 Club. Thank you to everyone who kindly provided photos to Phil Thurtle so that this video could be made.

For Graham …

Graham Hullett laid to rest

On the 17th December, the Choir of Lincoln Cathedral was packed with more than 300 relatives, friends and colleagues attending the Requiem Eucharist for the soul of Father Graham Hullett, a fitting farewell to a man whose faith had guided him to do so much for others.

Afterwards, the mourners gathered in the Chapter House, where leather-clad bikers reminisced on Graham’s time with the 59 Club (the motor bike they had clubbed together to buy Graham some years ago was on prominent display, surely a first for a cathedral Chapter House!), and the large contingent from the HDS on his input to the society, which included the role of Exhibitions Officer for many years.

RIP, Graham.
