I always feel the luv and deep respect for every Fulcer in my path for their kindness and obedience when serving as Helen and Dean did often and taught their sons and daughters. I knew them mostly as a very young child and later as an adult. The ones I knew were very close to God and will receive a “Well done Good and faithful Servant” when the time comes. I pray they will all unite with the rest of the Smith and Fulcers as well up in heaven. <3 <3 <3 Many blessings to you all.

Mr. Fulcer was an exceptional influence in life. There is so much he taught me. I am forever grateful for the grace he brought to my life. He will not only be remembered as a gentleman of the old world, he remains one of only 2 men in my life to I unfailingly refer to as “Mister”. His like won’t pass our way again.

RIP Mr. Fulcer.

My condolences, thoughts, and prayers go out to all people grieving the passing of Mr Fulcer. To Dean, Darren, and Kathy I’m truly Sorry to hear about your Dad!! He was one of the greatest men I knew. I knew Mr Fulcer during my years of scouting going on campouts, 50 mile hikes on the PCT and canoe trips on Ross Lake, spring fishing campout at Camp Hohobus and staying the night in an igloo tall enough for Mr Fulcer to stand up inside. Mr Fulcer made a huge impression on me as a young child and young man in my life and helped shape me into the man I am today. RIP Mr Fulcer ❤️❤️❤️ I am happy you get to see Helen and Patti again. I will always s “Be Prepared”!!!
