Chesley Hulan at the age of 86 years was promoted to “Angel in Flight” after his passing at the Bay St. George Long Term Care Center, Stephenville Crossing, NL on Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
The story of Chesley began on July 4, 1934 when he became the son of Silas and Isabelle Hulan of St. David’s, NL, along with his 12 siblings. Rex Hulan (deceased), Betty (Billy-deceased) Alley, Eldred (Madeleine) Hulan, (deceased), Marjorie (Charles) Alley (deceased), Rodney (Edith) Hulan, Winston (Louise) Hulan, Junior (Shirley) Hulan, Hilliard (Linda) Hulan, John (Kathy) Hulan, Verna Hulan Gillis, Debbie (Fred) Legge and Shirley Hulan.

In his early years, Chesley worked at farming, fishing and construction work on the Newfoundland and Labrador railway. In later years he ventured off to Ontario where he lived and worked in chrome and steel factories until returning to Newfoundland upon his retirement.
Chesley was a gentle soul with a free spirit who always loved a laugh and an adventure. He enjoyed his cold beer and cigarette while guessing quite a few answers on his favorite TV show, Jeopardy. He could also belt out a tune on harmonica and the spoons.
