Maury was born July 22, 1921, in Geneseo, the son of Oscar and Olive (Forsell) Hulting. He attended Geneseo High School and graduated with the Class of 1939. Maury furthered his studies at Augustana College, in Rock Island. Maury was united in marriage to Gladys Mae Weber on Feb. 24, 1949, at the Loraine Church parsonage, and they celebrated 68 years together. Maury’s life-time passion was farming and raising cattle and hogs on the family farm he was born on in Osco Township. This love for the outdoors inspired Maury to plant a tree every year and to care for and love his walnut grove. He was a member of the Geneseo Kiwanis Club for more than 30 years, along with being a member of the Livestock Feeders Association, Deere Valley Collectors Club, the Henry County Board for 10 years, and the ASCS Board. Maury was a lifetime member of First Lutheran Church.
