He was especially fond of his grandparents, Gramms and Papa, his Aunt Patty and mentor, Pastor Lowell Donnelley.

He is survived by his parents, Lynn A. and Debra Ann (Drone) Kull of Altamont; grandparents, Bill and Dorothy (Rash) Drone of Ridgway; son, Noah Kadan Kull Klimpel and his brother Desmond James Klimpel of Altamont; one brother, Trenton William (companion, Amber Schultze) Kull of Altamont; one sister, Audrey Ann (companion, Lucas Lilly) Kull of New Orleans, La.; two uncles, Tony Kull and Jeff Drone, both of Altamont; two aunts, Patricia (husband, David) Emerson of Indianapolis, and Angela (husband, Larry) Ohnesorge of Sun City, Ariz.; and several relatives and friends.
