Obituary

John A. Tulloch, M.D., 86, died peacefully at the University of Michigan Medical Center (where he graduated from Medical School in 1958).

“Duke” was born and raised in Detroit, where he attended Cooley High School, followed by Wayne State University, obtaining a degree in chemistry with a minor in physics, and, thereafter, earning a medical degree at Michigan.

While in high school, he achieved Eagle Scout status, was in the boy’s church choir, played ice hockey at a high level and was a professional magician. In the course of his undergraduate summers, he was the captain of a large yacht on Harsens Island and became quite familiar and adept with navigating the Great Lakes and adjoining waterways.

During the early stages of medical school, he married Mary Dorcas Flannery, originally from Cass City, Michigan, had three of their four children before age twenty-six, worked full time, and returned to Detroit for his residency at Harper Hospital. Soon after, the family moved to Grosse Pointe City, joined St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church, and began his medical practice in the Metropolitan Detroit area, including St. John, Harper, Hutzel and Bon Secours hospitals.

Duke and Mary travelled extensively throughout the United Kingdom, Europe and Central America with many friends, yet his family was his highest priority where he instilled his values for Faith in God, patriotic respect to our country, achievement, commitment, unselfishness, perseverance, good humor and a passion for life with his children, son-in-laws, nieces, nephews and grandchildren.

Dr. Tulloch was preceded in death by his wife, Mary (2018), and is survived by his children, Mary Elizabeth Oles (John R. Oles deceased), John M. Tulloch, Patricia Tulloch Huffman (David M. Huffman deceased), Monica Tulloch Boynton (Geoff), and grandchildren, Jeffrey H. Cann, Jr., Geoffrey S. Boynton, Meredith A. Tulloch and Jeannie M. Boynton. Several nieces and nephews also survive him.

John, Delivered our first child Jennifer. At the onset of my wife's labor when we arrived at Bon Sec our. Doc expressed at my wife Wendy's first contraction. " Jim this is going to be a long one, she doesn't know how to push". So this started an 11 hour labor at 8pm on a Friday night.
After about midnight and after the many contraction's, doc asked me "Are you a sailing fan?" of course I said "Yes". At the time The Americas Cup Sailing race was going on an being broadcast live on television from Australia.
Doc suggested that because this was going to be a long delivery, "Would you like to join me in the Doctor's lounge to watch the race in-between contraction's?" We proceeded to do so throughout the night and when we were needed the delivery nurse would call us back into the delivery room. At about 7:00 am my wife was nearing delivery and she looked at Doc and I and yelled at both of us "Where the heck (probably worse language) are you guys going when I am in-between contraction's?". Both of us said we were watching the Americas Cup sailing race in the Doctor's lounge!
Wendy was so upset with us for doing so, she delivered our daughter on the next push,

But the most important thing that Dr. John Tulloch did for us and our new daughter. Doc had the presence of mind to consult with me when my wife may have needed a blood transfusion after labor. At the time AID's had been in the blood supply system but it was said that after discovery the blood supply was clean for several month's. Doc was right, three weeks later it was found the blood supply was not clean. And she did not have a transfusion.

Most likely it saved my wife from the horrible consequences of AIDS

So may John's soul be received in heaven with open arms

Dear family. I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. What brings me comfort in times like these is the scripture found at Revelation 21: 3, 4 where God promises to do away with all sickness and death forever. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and may Jehovah, the God of all comfort, be with your family during this most difficult time in your lives.
