Tevis Wayne Hull

November 9, 1960 — January 3, 2024

Tevis Wayne Hull, loving husband, father of 13 and father figure to many more, passed away at age 63 on Wednesday, January 3, 2024. Born to Dan and Yvonne Hull, he lived on both coasts as a youth, moving with his father’s assignments in the Navy. Tevis graduated from Sandpoint High School in 1978, wrestled at North Idaho College, then graduated from University of Idaho with a B.S. in Communications. In that time, he married Carrie Belle Larson. He received his J.D. from the University of Idaho School of Law in 1989. He was a member of the Idaho State Bar and held in high regard for over 30 years. Career distinctions include helping establish the first victim/witness support program in Bonner County, as well as being the youngest elected prosecutor in the state of Idaho.

His most prized accomplishments occurred within the home, raising his 5 children Tevis James, Ben, Dan, John, and Emily; additionally, he and Carrie fostered children for 11 years, adopting 8 more - Ayla, Bryson, Cashius, Raelynn, Ezra Agustus, Everly, Tinsai, and Cecilia. Tevis lovingly cared for his many children, regardless of how they came to him, and extended that love to many others in foster relationships, and through his church service. He taught youth Sunday school and served as a young-men's group leader for many years. His selfless service to others is perhaps how he will be best remembered, and emulated by those he impacted.

Whether helping someone get firewood, hunting, walking into the courthouse, or carrying multiple children into church services, he was most always wearing jeans and flannel. He would truly give you the shirt off his back, provided red buffalo check is your style. Tevis is also readily remembered wearing a wide smile, frequently displayed while plowing snow on his tractor or giving one of his 13 grandchildren a ride. He was the tie that bound so many relationships, a true example of a “peacemaker” spoken of by Jesus Christ.

Tevis is survived by his wife Carrie, his parents Dan and Yvonne, his sisters Diane, Danielle, and Joan, and many other family members. A viewing will be held Wednesday, January 10th, from 2-5 p.m. at Coffelt Funeral Services in Sandpoint. It is open to the public. Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 12th, at 11 a.m. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 602 Schweitzer Cutoff Rd, Sandpoint.
