ANDREW WESLEY STULL

Elder Andrew Wesley Stull, 66, a devoted minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, husband, father and grandfather, was called home to be with his Lord on the evening of Aug. 10, 2021, at his residence in Freestone County. Graveside services will be held Saturday, Aug. 14 at 10 in the morning, at Point Enterprise Cemetery, with Elder Daryl Inman officiating.

Andrew, born June 9, 1955, in Edmond, Okla., was the youngest of two sons born to William Stull and Maydelle Dunn Stull. He was blessed to grow up in a godly home in Hurst, and was taught the doctrines of grace throughout his childhood. He spent much of his youth rodeoing and bull riding.

Andrew was baptized at an early age, in June 1963, into Mt. Zion Primitive Baptist Church, Ft. Worth, the memory of which he held dear. Andrew, or A.W., which he was often called, had a profound love and patriotic spirit for his country and proudly served in the 82nd Airborne Division during the Vietnam War, where he was seriously wounded and medically discharged.

A vivid spiritual experience convinced A.W. that he was destined to preach the Gospel. He once wrote, “When God called me to preach, the scripture found in Colossians Chapter two, Verse six: “As ye have also received Christ Jesus the Lord walk ye in Him.” seemed to be illuminated, and I felt the Lord touch me on the forehead. And by an eye of faith I was made to see His blood and then I saw the cross. Upon many occasions I have been brought back to that time in my mind.” Andrew then embarked on a study of the scriptures with a zest and fervor that fit his calling. After several years, and hours of fruitful study, the Dixie Primitive Baptist Church of Whitesboro, ordained Andrew to the full work of the gospel ministry. Subsequently, he pastored a number of churches throughout Texas and Oklahoma. He possessed a preaching gift characterized by power and demonstration of the Spirit that was edifying to the congregations he ministered to.

At the time of his death, Andrew was a member of the Little Flock Primitive Baptist Church of Eustace, where he also served as pastor. Andrew also worked as a carpenter and construction foreman until his retirement. He enjoyed raising horses, ranch work and watching John Wayne movies.

In early 1996, A.W. met his soon-to-be wife and love of his life, the former Suzanne Blackmon, while attending a church event in Ft. Worth. They were married in August of that same year. After living in Houston for a number of years, they moved to the Mexia area, where Suzanne had been raised, and he eventually built their home in the Rocky Branch community of Freestone County.

Andrew was preceded in death by his parents, William and Maydelle Stull, and older brother Rick Stull.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Suzanne Stull; one son, Sam Marshall Stull; stepchildren Roam Anthony Gunn Jr. and Sarah K. Weisheit; grandchildren Ryland Weisheit, Roam Gunn III, and Jane Gunn, along with numerous nieces and nephews and church family.

We are comforted by the fact that our beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend is even now basking in the glory of Heaven, in the very presence of his Savior, which he longed to see. We will not say goodbye to Andrew, but rather we will see you on the other side.

1 Corinthians 15:55-57

King James Version

“55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
