RICHARD “DICK” FULLER [Frostburg]

TOGETHER AGAIN

FROSTBURG — On Sunday, July 13, 2014, Richard “Dick” Fuller, 90, left behind the constraints his earthly body had placed on him and soared to Heaven into God’s and his loved one’s arms at WMHS Frostburg Nursing & Rehab Center surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Frostburg, on June 4, 1924, he was the son of the late Harry and Jennie (Anderson) Fuller.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Bronwen (Rupp) Fuller; son, Richard; granddaughter, Bethaney; brother, Harry Fuller; and nephew, Harry Fuller Jr.

He was a bricklayer by trade and worked out the Bricklayers Local Union. He had also worked at ABL in the Powder Department.

Richard served his country in WWII in the U.S. Navy as a gunners mate on board the USS Murphy, participating in the D Day invasion.

He later served his community as a volunteer with the Frostburg Area Ambulance Service and the Frostburg Fire Department, where he loved going to the elementary schools teaching the Hug-A-Tree program and fire safety. He was a member of the Crime Search Team and was also a member of the Civil Air Patrol and loved flying. As a young man, he was also in the Amateur Boxing Club. He took art lessons and became an accomplished artist.

He is survived by his two daughters, Marsha Ketterman and husband, Rick, of Short Gap, W.Va., and Renee RuppenKamp and husband, Doug, of Cumberland; and the apple of his eye, his granddaughter, Sarah Fuller, of Frostburg.

Family and friends will be received at Durst Funeral Home P.A., 57 Frost Avenue, Frostburg on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m.

Funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Wednesday, July 16, 2014, at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Earl Williams officiating.
