WINDSOR Zachary R. Fuller, 26, died Friday, July 11, 2014, at his residence in Lower Windsor Township. A Celebration of Life Service will be 4 p.m. Saturday, July 19, 2014 at Life Tributes by Olewiler & Heffner Funeral Chapel & Crematory, Inc., 35 Gotham Place, Red Lion, with the Rev. Dennis McCleary officiating. A visitation will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family. Born October 10, 1987, in York, he was a son of Debbie (Miller) Baublitz and her husband Greg of Windsor and the late Keith Fuller. Zach was a role model and inspiration for his younger brother Matt. Always pushing him to get outside, teaching him to enjoy all the great things the outdoors and nature had to offer. Throughout all the adversity that Zach faced, his spirit remained. He was a great teacher of the values of life and told a great story without ever speaking a word. Since the accident in 2003, Zach has had many caregivers, but none as loving and dedicated as his mother. Every day, Debbie put her heart and soul into caring for her son. Zach's family has been blessed with the support of many great people and organizations over the years, none more supportive than Bob Rhein. He was Zach's Make-A-Wish sponsor and over the past 8 years, they developed a "best friend" relationship. Through Bob and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Zach met and was honored with a special performance by his favorite band, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Zach enjoyed the outdoors, he was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved shooting his bow and even at the age of 14, he knew the importance of good form. With the assistance of his stepfather, Greg, and Mack from Red Lion Archery, Zach and his friends would set up cameras to video their shooting technique. He was also a member of York Archers, Men of the Rifle Range, worked part-time for Red Lion Archery and attended LCBC in Manheim and York for the past 6 years. Zach is also survived by three brothers, Matt Fuller and Ryan Miller, both of Windsor, and Jeremy Fuller and his wife, Lindsay of Gettysburg; one sister, Crissie Fuller of Red Lion; maternal grandfather, Marlyn Miller of Hellam; and four nieces and two nephews. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Make-A-Wish Foundation, 2951 Whiteford Road, York, PA 17402; or in memory of Keith Fuller (Zach's father) to honor his service during Vietnam, to The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, 2600 Virginia Avenue NW, Suite 104, Washington, D.C. 20037 (www.VVMF.org).
