Memories
Son of Paul and Pearl Fuller of Arthur City, Texas and husband of Martha Alice Mace Fuller of Moberly, Mo. Father to Loretta and Lance. Brothers Ronald, Raymond and Rodney remember growing up in McKean, Pa and the closeness they had as a family. His sisters Ruthie and Renee remember their older brother as the protective type.
Now he joins sister Roberta and grandparents Perry and Celia in God's kingdom, his time on earth is done. We will miss him but knowing that each of us have been touched by him in one way or another. Robert's gifts were plentiful and his rewards will be great
. If you wish to add a memory or comment to this page please email.

Memories




  I am Lance, Robert's stepson by marriage, but son by choice.  My dad taught me to never forget anyone, but to love all around you the same. 
 I only hope through his memory we can become more understanding of what he stood for.  Fairness, love, compassion, and a chance to overcome mistakes.  I know I have learned a lot
from him, and will continue to exhibit the values taught by him. 
Lance McCann-Stepson and family spokesman



Having children this time of year keeps the fond memories alive. I remember one Halloween I was with some of my friends and my cousin Robert came to town. He was a couple years older and out on his own. But hung out with us that Hallows eve and made for a very nice holiday. Maggie Harrison


 
May 15th is upon us. The anniversary of Robert's passing. Since that date lives have changed and people have grown apart. Let this day be the one that brings us all back together again, in his memory.

before he met me. They were fishing buddies. When I brought him home for mom and daddy to meet I don't know who was more surprised  daddy, or Willy! (HAHA!) There is a pic of my wedding cake, he decorated it all by himself! Also a pic of daddy, momma, my brother Lance And myself. . I am so thankful that I had the opportunity for him to give me away!"

Loretta wrote.... I just wanted to know if you could put a little anniversary memory on the site for me? 
Daddy has been gone 3 years today, and it still seems like yesterday! 
Thank You so much, God bless you and your family!

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. 
I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glint on softly falling snow. 
When in the morning hush, 
I am the swift up-lifting rush of quite birds in circling flight 
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep.

She told me that Robert loved this child. He was there at his birth and helped raise him to be the fine young man you see here.

Remember that a person doesn't have to be seen to be heard. Dustin will remember the advice he received throughout his life. Robert is with us today, tomorrow and everyday.

Happy Birthday Robert. You'll STILL be older than me!

Celebrating the birth of Robert. Although gone from our sight, not from our hearts, his family and friends say "Happy Birthday  Robert.".Communicate, Appreciate and Validate your loved ones today and everyday.  

 

   
   
As the holiday season approaches, let us remember the happy times. Keep Robert's family in your  thoughts and prayers.  Merry Christmas 2004

I had been thinking of Robert because of his birthday so I thought I would take a memory walk. 
The family fell apart when Robert passed, Its a shame, I loved them more than my own family and all of them are gone now but my natural Mother and the sister in Kansas, so all I have is my kids and three grandkids. Dustin will graduate this year and will be going in service to get college, Felicia is 16 and Ryan is 12 so they are about all gone to there own life to.  I live in the same town now, where both kids live, Centralia, Mo., I had major surgery on my aorta last year and had to be close to my daughter where she could help take care of me after surgery.

May 15, 2007  My daughter turned 23 today and she is about to give me my first granddaughter. Jalita Mai Purdue. This day is special for a lot of people,  Lei Ann was 16 when my cousin Robert passed away.  She had heard me talk about stories of growing up and the farm and what fun we had. She remembers herself being little and spending time with her grandfather at the farm. Robert lived far away and only got to see her a couple times at family reunions. Each year since then her birthday holds a special meaning, the day of his birth to a new life.
Know in your heart that one day we will be together again and that Robert looks over us even though he is far away.

 


Stopped by the cemetery today. They were mowing and picking up tree branches left from the winter storms.
Snapped this photo to add to Robert's page.  5/3/09

 
7/11/09 Received an email from Marty (Robert's wife) asking if I would post this information on Robert's page.

Loretta and I were married just over 9 years when she passed away here at home. She was not only my wife but also my friend. Yes I had met Bob before her, we fished together we didn't catch many but we talked about the ones we had caught before.  I heard many stories about Ruthie. When I met her she said her name was Loretta and I didn't put it together at first. I knew bob lived across the street from her but he was out on the road a lot and I worked two jobs. When we went out it was to the car races in Moberly where we both had friends racing. We became friends fast and I am sure I fell in love with her the first time I saw her. She was so much more than a wife, she was my best fishing buddy and always stood behind me in what ever I done. She even got me to watch football, she was true to her KC Chiefs win or lose she did not give up. She never gave up on me either when I got hurt she was right by my side the whole time. When I had surgery she was there when I went in and there holding a cold diet Pepsi for me. When we married we made two families into one.
 Loretta I love you and always will
