Tuesday March 9th 2021, the heavenly doors opened, and an angel was dispatched to Authora Care Collective Hospice of Burlington. On this morning, Mr. William T. Fuller was given his wings. In a peaceful transition, he went to live in the house of our Lord and Savior. In recent years he battled Dementia. As a normal life began to change, he showed his courage in facing new challenges with a smile. Despite the pain, William came out as our hero and stayed strong until the end.
William was born October 26, 1948, to the late Junior T. Fuller and Beatrice S. Fuller. He was a graduate of Jordan Sellars High School. William was known to many as Lil Bruh and Tiny. However, the names he loved the most were the ones used by his grandchildren; Fat-Daddy, Paw-Paw and Granddaddy.
William worked as a supervisor for 25 years at Torque Elastics in Burlington until he retired. Retirement gave him time to fully enjoy listening to his old-school music collection and root for his favorite sports teams, the UNC Tarheels and Dallas Cowboys. You couldn’t say anything while he watched these teams playing. We knew exactly when they were losing when his favorite saying “Ah shh (****)” would ring throughout the house.
As a loving father, grandfather and brother, William will be sorely missed by us all. He will be forever a part of every one of us. May he forever rest with his newly healed mind, body and soul. We love you Lil Bruh, Tiny, Daddy Fat-Daddy, Granddaddy and Paw-Paw.
Those left to cherish his memory are four sons; William E. Fuller aka Scooter, Donald Fuller (Tina), Deron Fuller (Alicia) and Eric Fuller. Three daughters; Tinisha Fuller, Terese Fuller and Tichina Taylor; One brother; Mr. Willie Fuller (Helena) 22 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren; Four nieces and a host of extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents Junior T. Fuller and Beatrice S. Fuller; and infant daughter Shannon Fuller.
A Special thanks to Ms. Joanne Fuller aka Tinnie. We thank you for your never-ending love and support you continue to give to each of us.
