His greatest joy in life was his family and spending time with them. Charles always put family first, showed his love in many ways and was an excellent provider. He was an avid outdoorsman, so there was lots of time spent with his wife and daughters, camping and swimming while living in North Carolina and Idaho. After retirement, they returned to Idaho and the joy of snowmobiling was had by all, and there were many wonderful fishing trips with his daughter, Janet Beth. His love of fishing and hunting led him to many wonderful places such as Alaska, the Yukon and Africa. His success as a hunter put him into the Boone & Crocket Record Books for his bear hunt in Alaska.

Charles is survived by his loving wife, Patricia Ann Holder Fuller; daughter Janet Beth Fuller; and sister Juanice Fuller Goodman.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Herbert and Pearl Fuller; and his daughters, Laura Lynn and Melanie Ann.
