Robert M. "Bob" Fullerton Obituary
Robert "Bob" M. Fullerton

AGE: 69 • New Castle

Robert "Bob" M. Fullerton, 69, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 18, 2017. Born in New York and raised in Delaware, Bob graduated from Wilmington High School and served proudly in the United States Navy as a shipfitter. Bob was a member of the Sheet Metal Workers Union Local 19DE serving as a sheet metal mechanic for thirty years. He also taught welding and metallurgy at Delaware Technical Community College. An avid fisherman, a self-taught horologist repairing antique clocks, Bob appreciated a good dining experience, and enjoyed the beach. For him, it was always family first. He was a tough man with a soft heart and quiet strength with his daughters referring to him as their "bodyguard". Bob loved his wife of 48 years and found joy in the time he spent joking with his grandsons.

His family will dearly miss his humor and words of wisdom. He continues to live in the hearts of his wife, Patricia Fullerton and daughters, Christine Fullerton deWit (Chris P deWit) and Pamela Fullerton Snider (Michael Snider) as well as his grandsons, Nathan and Austin deWit. He was predeceased by his parents, Florence and Harry Fullerton.

Visitation for the public will be held on Friday, June 23rd from 11 AM - 12 Noon at Strano and Feeley Funeral Home, 635 Churchmans Road, Newark, DE 19720. Services will begin at Noon. Interment will follow in the Veterans Cemetery. For directions or to send on online condolence visit
