Garry was born December 7, 1955 in Lincoln, IL, the son of Donald and Ladine Ellis Fulk. He married Angela K. Crutcher on June 4, 1988 in Normal. She survives.

He is survived by children: Mindi Fulk (El Paso), Eric Fulk (McLean), and Kaitlin Fulk (Creve Coeur); four grandchildren: Shelby, Rudy, Lauren and Maverick; and Uncle Tom Ellis of Farmer City.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, (Lyle Fulk) and sister, (Nancy Fulk Mallory).

Garry graduated from Olympia High School and Lincoln College with a Bachelor of Business Management degree.

Saving lives and putting others first was something he did for a living as an EMT/Paramedic and as the founder/owner of CodeBusters, a First Aid & CPR/AED Training school. He volunteered for BroMenn Patient Services and No One Dies Alone Program. Garry worked for State Farm Insurance Companies for over 26 years. Garry owned his own mobile DJ business that provided the perfect song to make people feel, laugh and love.

Garry fought a brave and hard battle against Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Music was an important part of his journey. He had a playlist for his stem cell transplant day. One of the songs, "Humble and Kind," embodied the spirit in which Garry lived his life. He will live on in our hearts, our thoughts and through music.

I knew Garry as a kid while he and my uncle Randy Stroud knew each other. Garry was one of the people I saw as a paramedic, and wanted to be like. He had a great sense of humor and had a way of talking to people. My deepest sympathy to Mindi, Eric, Kaitlin, and family. Garry touched a lot of lives, mine included.
