Ron Fulkerson, 78, of Evansville, Indiana, passed away at St. Mary's Hospital, in Evansville, on Feb. 12, 2015.
He was born Nov. 11, 1936, in Hodgenville, to the late Mary Catherine McClain and the late Hugh M. Fulkerson. He was a 1954 graduate of LaRue County High School, where he played basketball, a 1958 graduate of University of Kentucky with a bachelor of science degree and graduate degree in biology in 1960. He retired from Upjohn Pharmaceuticals after a rewarding 30-year career as a pharmaceutical representative. He moved a lot of pills in his day!
Ron is survived by his son, Bryan (Chris) Fulkerson; daughters, Susan (Joe) Wright, and Gwen Kuenzli; grandchildren, Hannah Fulkerson, Sydney Fulkerson, JT (Brittany) Wright, George (Kristi) Wright, Emily (Adam) Oglesby, Mason Wright, Nora Kuenzli, Hattie (Kris) Fox and Grace Kuenzli; and great-grandchildren, Karlie Fox, Paxton Oglesby, Olivia Wright, Khloe Fox, and Andy Wright, due in March. He is preceded in death by his brother, David Fulkerson.
Ron was an avid fan of the University of Kentucky. He fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a pilot and starting his own flight school – there are now many pilots as a result of his passion. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, scuba diving, to just sitting by the campfire telling stories . . . and boy, could he tell a story! He also loved to travel and devoured books as he was an avid reader. Honorable Ron Fulkerson was commissioned a Kentucky Colonel in 1990. He so enjoyed being with friends and family – always making sure everyone was having a good time. This was his ultimate passion in life. He will be deeply missed . . . forever.
The funeral is 1 p.m. Feb. 18, 2015, at Sunset Funeral Home in Evansville, Indiana. Entombment will follow in Sunset Memorial Park. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until service time Wednesday at the funeral home. Contributions may be made, in memory of Ron Fulkerson, to the LaRue County Public Library, 201 S.
