CONTOOCOOK – Everett H. Fuller, 96, of Contoocook and formerly of Antrim, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, July 24th, 2014, following a brief illness. His loving son and a dear friend were by his side.
Everett was born in Walpole, Mass. on December 2, 1917, to Henry and Carrie (Attwater) Fuller. He was a graduate of Walpole High School and earned a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Northeastern University. He began a career in chemical engineering shortly after graduation and worked for Bird & Son Incorporated. In 1942, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy
and proudly served his country as a PV-1 Escort Pilot running missions up and down the East Coast. After his honorable discharge from the military in 1945, Everett returned to his career as a chemical engineer working for Holliston Mills (formerly Bird & Son) and continued with Norton Co.
After he retired Everett became an avid golfer. He was a member of Angus Lee Golf Club in Hillsborough where, for many years, he served as secretary for the Morning Senior Men's League. He participated in league candlepin bowling in Peterborough, was active in the Tufts Strong Living exercise program at the Grapevine Family & Community Center in Antrim, and enjoyed countless hours sailing with his son on Lake Winnipesaukee. Described as a sweet man with a smile that lit up his face, Everett possessed unparalleled generosity, and his ability to give of himself to others seemed limitless. He was a loving husband, an amazing father, and a devoted friend.
His son, Brenner K. Fuller of Contoocook, and several nieces and nephews, survive Everett. His wife, E. Janice (Zack) Fuller; and his brothers, Clarence Fuller, a Congregational Minister in Melrose, Mass. and Edward Fuller of Wyckoff, N.J., predeceased him.
An announcement about memorial services will be made at a later date.
