Help Keep His Memory Alive

Firstly, I want to take the time to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts. I know the family would agree. The outpouring of love and support has been immense, and we truly appreciate it.

We want to keep his spirit alive, and make sure people remember him as who he WAS, and how he affected people, not that he was some bipolar looney that ran away. He was SO much more than that, and people must remember him as such. I know we put out a request for content, but we still need some from a different perspective.

Here’s what we need: We need content from people, to show what an incredible person he was.

Here’s how: We want to start publishing content about Chris, from YOUR perspective. How did you know him? How did he touch your life? What’s your favorite memory of him? We also want any content from his work in education, so we can show everyone what a phenomenal teacher he is.

So please, send us:

Your name

How you knew Chris

A write up on how Chris touched your life, and any memories, or a video, or both.

Please only send YouTube links, as we cannot host the videos easily ourselves.

Send this information to: helpfindtully@gmail.com, and we will go through the submissions and start posting!

Thank you everyone, so very much. Our hearts go out to the family, especially his brother Eddie, and Chris’ sons CJ, Ryan and Sean.

We WILL be keeping this site up (probably forever) and both the Facebook group, the Facebook page, and the (newly created) Twitter account will stay active as long as we possibly can keep it up. We want to keep them as a support group, and a way for people to share and console each other.

  1. I met Chris Tully many years ago. My sister, my best friend and I were mega fans of Dance Party USA. We watched every single episode. Chris and Eddie lived right around the corner from us, and a few times we were able to hang out with them. The three of us had a major crush on Chris…… Chris was full of energy and we loved and treasured every minute we were able to spend with him and Eddie…… They were simple, memorable moments, moments that I will always treasure and will always hold a special place in my heart. Chris is a special person…… He touched people’s hearts in so many ways….and this is how I want to remember Chris, always full of energy……. He is an angel, perhaps to good for this world……. He is at peace…. We will all miss him….. I wish I could be there to give my condolences in person to his loved ones but I live way too far away. And so I have to limit myself in sending my most sincere condolences on this sight to his parents, to his brother, his wife and his three children. My thoughts and prayers are with you always…… May Chris guide you all and give you strength…. He will always be with you. He is your guardian angel….. Rest in peace, Chris….. And thank you for the wonderful memories….

  3. Mr. Tully was the best teacher I ever had. His lessons and inspiration will stay with me for the rest of my life. Truly a life changing person, and a perfect role model. I love this man as a teacher, a mentor and a friend. May he rest in peace

  4. I first met Eddie and Chris when I was about 7/8 years old.. They were like the neihboorhood celebrities. Every year at st Agnes Xmas party they would come and were the highlight of the party.. Besides watching Chris and I believe Eddie as well, on dance party usa, they were always cool and treated everyone with respect… Chris I understand what you went thru. I know the feeling the pain… But you would never know… Great guy gone to soon… Eddie you did your all ,and I’m sure your gonna send him off to heven in a way that he would want. God bless your family… Sincerely, ray givigliano

  5. I first met Christ on Dance Party USA. My cousin Justine Michalczyk was a regular and I would go on frequently with her and got to meet Christ Tully. Later on our paths crossed when we studied at Temple University together. We shared many core classes together and had numerous study groups together. Chris was always an upbeat guy. We shared good times together at Temple’s spring flings. He was so energetic and wanted to learn about everything. I couldn’t have met a better person than Chris, he has a heart of gold.

  6. Christopher Tully was my grandson Michael McGovern`s teacher at Middle Bucks Institute of Technology. He was really great with all his students and inspired them to persue their dreams. My heart aches for Mr. Tully and his family and students. There’s a whole in their hearts that can’t be filled. Mr. Tully may be gone but his memory will linger on. I guess Heaven needed an angel, that’s why God took Christopher home to live for all eternity.

  7. Ed, I am so sorry about your brother. My heart breaks for you and your family. I remember the first time I heard your brothers’ name. It was when my son Christopher was in the same class with Chris at St Monica’s. I told my son that I watched a scene from the movie Witness being filmed in town. My son told me that Chris told the class that his dad was in the movie. We thought that that was pretty cool. I remember you well from my many years in real estate. I admire your dedication to your family. I prayed every day that this situation would have a better outcome. Again, I am truly sorry for your loss. I will continue praying for your family and for your brothers’ children.

  8. Christopher Tully parents were good friends with my Aunt Cynthia & Uncle Ronnie Maraglia. They would come over my grandmother’s house. He was shy but a really nice person. Loved watching Chris on Dancing on air. Chris will be missed by many people

  9. Such a tragic loss. My husband and I had the opportunity to meet Chris at the ACTE award ceremony this past summer. It was only for a few minutes, but we found his personality infectious. The passion he had for his career and his family was evident in the speech he gave. Chris had won the teacher of the year award and my husband won the new teacher of the year award. Chris had given my husband such inspirational advice and impacted him in such a way that’s hard to even explain. Many thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and students.

  11. Chris there is just so much to say about this talented, warm-hearted caring human being. I had the pleasure of working with him in the Multi-Media program @MBIT and knew him for the past 7 yrs. He was always on target and on task with all of his students, showed them the ropes as he would say, he always wanted them to do their best in the classroom and with their work assignments. He made sure the students fully understood what he wanted them to do and how to succeed in whatever they wanted to do in their lives. The students had the utmost respect for Mr. Tully. Chris and I would sometimes walk into work in the mornings and always joked around about our driving skills he would tell me I drove to slow in the parking lot (like you drive 12 miles an hr. which my response was and you drive way to fast). Chris always talked about his children & wife and how much he adored and loved them. There were times when I was with my son & husband @The Outback in Jamison for dinner and we would run into Chris and his family he always made it a point to come over to us and sit and chat for awhile. I will truly miss Chris so very much but my memories of Chris will live with me in my heart, mind and soul. RIP Chris Tully, RIP ♥

  12. I only knew Chris through my coaching baseball at Warwick but he was instantly a guy I liked. We would talk about coaching these young kids and how letting them play and have fun came first, not winning or accolades. He also shocked me when he walked up and sang the National Anthem on opening day this past season! I said wow I didn’t know you could sing and he humbly and quickly changed the subject! He was a genuine human being and I enjoyed every conversation with him.

    Our prayers are with you all. God bless him and all of you.

  13. Mr. Tully came up to me after my presentation at back to school night last year. I was CJ’s 7th grade science teacher. There were probably around 50 parents in my tiny little room and someone had accidentally hit the red button which completely shuts down all the power in my room. He told me that he had had a similar thing happen in his classroom while trying to do a big presentation in front of lots of important people and we both laughed and he went on his way. It was but a moment of his time but just from that tiny encounter you could tell that he was a kind soul with a good sense of humor. You can see this kind and beautiful soul in his amazing son CJ. He is by far one of the nicest 7th grade boys I have ever had the privilege to teach and I hope that he will always remember that his incredible character is a reflection of his father.
