Albert Lee Fuller, age 75, of Mount Vernon went home to be with his Lord and Savior in the early morning hours of Wednesday, April 30, 2014, at Greenhill Villa in Mount Pleasant.
Al was born May 9, 1938 in Como, Texas, to the late Jesse Horace and Julia Kate Adams Fuller. After high school, Al joined the United States Air Force, where he served nearly six years and worked as a boom operator on refueling aircraft. Al then joined the United States Army, where he served another 25 plus years and retired as Sergeant First Class. During his military career, Al served two tours of duty in Vietnam and earned numerous medals and honors.
Al married Carolyn Wilson on Feb. 20, 1988, in Boise, Idaho. After 26 years of marriage and lifetime of memories, she survives.
In retirement, Al became a jack of all trades. He had a knack for small engine repair, worked as a trauma tech, worked for the Franklin County Sherriff's Department, and he drove a DART bus for a very short time. Al was a born again believer and pastor. Those who knew Al best will remember him for the stories he told, even when you didn't necessarily want to hear them. Al had a servant's heart and a loving spirit. In his free time, Al enjoyed carpentry and paying particular attention to all of the details. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing.
Al is survived by his wife, Carolyn of Mount Vernon; sons Rodney Fuller, and wife, Sheila, of New Boston, Donald Fuller of Cooper, Richard Fuller of Belton County and David Meyers and wife, Vicky, of Boise, Idaho; daughters Connie Perry and husband, Sam, of Wolfe City and Dawn Meyers of Nampa, Idaho; grandchildren Jim Runyan and wife, Jacklyn, Amy Goff, Ryan Fuller and wife, Katie, Chris Fuller, Amy McElwrath and husband, Cory, Jason Roland, and Staci Wright and husband, Dakota; by 11 great-grandchildren; one sister, Murlene Carr of Bullard; and by one aunt, Velma Locke of Mount Vernon.
