Obituary

Michael E. Shull, loving husband and father of three, was called home at the age of 56, on Friday, July 10, 2020.

Mike was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming on April 5, 1964 to John A. and Ellen M. Shull. He graduated from MacArthur High School in San Antonio, Texas and went on to attend Texas Tech University on a football and baseball scholarship. Mike played professional baseball and was a pitcher in the California Angels organization. After his professional baseball career was cut short due to an injury, he attended UTSA and graduated Suma Cum Laude with a BBA in Accounting. Mike was a valued employee and a Leader in Corporate Accounting for 23 years at Republic National Distributing Company.

Mike served on the boards of numerous organizations, including McAllister Park Little League, the YMCA, School Booster clubs, School parent/teacher associations. He is well known for his passion for baseball and volunteer dedication to coaching baseball. He was also involved with coaching youth football, soccer and basketball. Coach Shull led San Antonio's first team to the Little League World Series. He and the 2009 McAllister Park Little League baseball team were inducted into the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame in 2014. His two favorite mottos were: "Kill them with kindness." and "It's bad luck to be superstitious." Mike was a strong, kind man with a big heart and an infectious smile. His quick-witted and sarcastic humor filled any room.

He met the love of his life Bernice Shull at the University of Incarnate Word where Mike was assisting the baseball coaching staff during his off season. They were married for 28 years and had three wonderful sons.
