Edwin (Ed) Davis Fuller
09/12/2018
Edwin (Ed) Davis Fuller, 73, of Port Orange, FL, was called home to be with his Lord surrounded by family and friends on September 12, 2018, following a hard-fought second round against cancer. Ed was born in Memphis, TN, to Margaret and Jeff Fuller. He graduated from Whitehaven High School in Memphis, TN, in 1963 and moved to Florida in 1970. Ed worked in title insurance with Chelsea Title and Volusia Title Services in DeLand, FL, until his retirement in 2006. After moving to Florida, Ed met and married the love of his life, Faye, in 1971. Together, they raised three daughters, enjoyed spoiling six grandchildren, and served as Sunday School teachers and bus drivers/captains for the Bus Ministry of First Baptist Daytona Beach for many years. Ed strongly believed in sharing his faith with others and participated in the Evangelism Explosion and FAITH evangelism at the church. His greatest hope was that all he knew and loved would come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior. His most cherished moments were those spent with his family, whether it was family UNO battles, watching college football together, making sure to catch Waltrip announce "Boogity, boogity, boogity…Let's go racing, boys," or just simply listening to and sharing family memories while enjoying far too much food. Ed is survived by his wife of 47 years, Faye; daughters Kimberly Tarr and her husband John (Edgewater, FL), Jennifer Dawn Raines and her husband Eddie (Ormond Beach, FL), and Heather Patton and her husband Charles (Orlando, FL); grandsons Christopher Raines (fiancée Kayla) and Brandon (fiancée Jessica) and Johnny Tarr; granddaughters Ashley Tarr, Alexis Craft and her husband Will, and Anne Patton; and brother Cecil Blackburn (Southaven, MS). Ed was also excited to recently learn he would be a great-granddaddy in 2019. Ed was preceded in death by his father and mother, Margaret and Jeff Fuller; sister Pat Gish; and brothers Rich and Ronnie Blackburn. A Celebration of Life will be held on September 22, 2018, at 11am at First Baptist Church Daytona Beach (118 N. Palmetto Ave, Daytona Beach, FL, 32114), with reception immediately following. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to be made to the Children's Ministry and Bus Ministry of First Baptist Church Daytona Beach.
