Hull resident Douglas M. Wilcox died Dec.7 at age 70. 
Mr. Wilcox worked in the book business as a publishing sales representative for many years. He was a man who was able to make a friend wherever he went. He was highly intelligent and had a love of history, politics, weather, and science. 
He was very open-minded and had a strong sense of religion. He served as a deacon at the First Trinitarian Congregational Church in Scituate. 
He was a huge Jimmy Buffet fan and was passionate about collecting books and political and historical memorabilia. 
His family was the center of his life and his proudest achievement; at the end of his life, his grandchildren were his greatest joy. Mr. Wilcox will be sadly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.     
He was the beloved husband of 40 years of Carla Campbell of Hull; loving father of Briana McAuliffe and her husband, Joseph, of Hull; and Alix Deegan and her husband, CJ, of East Bridgewater; and devoted “BePa” of JD, Delaney, Carter, and Mackenzie. 
He was the cherished son of the late Douglas and Carol Wilcox and the caring nephew of Patricia Thatner of New York. He is also survived by many loving cousins and dear friends.
