On September 4, 2021 Tommy Fuller went to be with the Lord. He passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family.
Tommy was born on August 7, 1932 in Bronson, Texas to Joe and Ruth Fuller. At the age of 6 he moved with his family to San Antonio. He spent his childhood there and in 1950 he graduated from Alamo Heights High School. Tommy then went on to attend Sull Ross State University and later decided to join the Navy. He was medically discharged from the Navy while training in San Diego.
Tommy married the "love of his life", Bonnie Jeffrey, in 1952and in 1953 they moved to Rosevine, Texas to work the family dairy farm with his father. They eventually returned to San Antonio where Tommy began his career in the tile business. He worked hard to learn the trade and he started Fuller Tile Co. in 1965. He made lifelong friends in the tile business.
Tommy and Bonnie were blessed with 4 beautiful children: Rusty, Kenny, Keith and Cindy. Family time was spent camping, coaching his kids and playing sports. Tommy also had a passion for country music which he shared with his family. He was always serenading them.
Tommy enjoyed hunting in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado but his favorite place to hunt was in Cuero, Texas. Many weekends were spent there sitting around the campfire with his family.
Tommy never met a stranger and was loved by all who knew him. He had the ability to make everyone feel special. He had a sense of humor and wit about him that always kept us laughing.
His deepest and most cherished love was for his family. He leaves behind his wife Bonnie of 69 years, 4 children Rusty (Shoshana), Kenny (Cindy), Keith (Donna), Cindy (Joey), 15 grandchildren and 35 great grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his father Joe, mother Ruth, sister Ramona, brother Keith and grandson Kyle.
The family would like to thank Heart of Texas Hospice; Rose and his beloved caregiver Danielle.
We were so blessed that God gave us a beautiful day with him before he passed.
