Robert Fuller passed away at home on April 27th following a brief illness. Bob committed himself to community service, including as trustee and board chairman of Evergreen School; Apogee Institute board member; Lynnwood Rotary board member and president; Lynnwood Rotary Foundation trustee and president; South Snohomish Chamber of Commerce board member and president; Lynnwood Public Facilities District board member and vice-chairman; and Lynnwood Food Bank board member.
Bob was born in Morgantown, WV, in 1942, and raised in Wilmington, DE. After graduation from Syracuse University, he joined the Air Force, where he served for 20 years.
He retired in 1984, and after a cross-country tour in their Chevy van, he and his family chose to set down roots in Edmonds. There he launched his second and third careers, first in sales and motivational speaking, then 22-year career as a financial advisor.
Bob is survived by his wife of 47 years, Mele, sons Patrick and Chris, three grandchildren, and his brother Jeffrey. He was a committed father and grandfather, and was always there when his family needed his support.
There will be no celebration of life at this time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bob’s name to the local food bank of your choice.
