BELLVILLE: Robert L. “Bob” Fulton, 71, and lifelong Bellville resident, passed away Wednesday evening, February 7, 2018 at home surrounded by his loving family. Tough and determined, Bob lived courageously the past five years with stage four renal cancer.
The son of Robert J. and Evelyn (Bricker) Fulton, Bob was born May 6, 1946 in Mansfield. In 1964 he was in the first graduating class of Clear Fork High School. Bob continued his education at Akron University earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. For 35 years, Bob taught in the Mansfield City School District. Most of his career Bob taught middle school American History.
He enjoyed country life. Every year Bob planted his vegetable garden and each new year it seemed to get larger in size. He collected antiques. In the summer months he’d take his family camping. Bob never met a stranger and could strike a conversation with just about anyone.
He will be remembered for his kindness and hearty laughter.
He is survived by his loving wife Julie (Gatton) Fulton of Bellville; two children and their spouses Andy and Tracy Fulton and Jamie and Philip Skaggs all of Bellville; four grandchildren Alex Fulton, Austin Kurtz, Nicholas and Lacey Skaggs; a sister Joan Eyster of Bellville; brother-in-law and sister-in-law Mark and Lois Gatton of Bellville; and father-in-law and mother-in-law Jim and Roma Gatton of Belliville; as well as nephews.
Along with his parents he was preceded in death by a niece and nephew Jana Eyster and John Deucore.
A memorial gathering will be held Sunday, February 11, 2018 from 1-4 pm in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home.
