Tom Fullerton

Thomas B. “Pops” Fullerton, 56, passed away on Monday morning, November 29.

"Tom was born in Richmond, Indiana, on July 9, 1965, the son of Albert E., Sr. & Freda J. Defibaugh Fullerton, both of whom preceded him in death.
Tom was a free spirit, full of wisdom and knowledge about what life was in a nutshell. He loved listening to music, telling stories of past times with his friends, motorcycles, his cat boots, cruising, and watching movies. Anywhere that Tom went, he always ran into someone he knew, and loved to talk."


"Throughout life, we live and we learn. He truly adored and loved his daughters Harley and Jennifer. He used his past to teach us that, choices have consequences, and to do better, be better, stay strong and to always be honest with yourself, no matter what. Tom and Kim lived in a world of complete brutal honesty because they both despised each other, and yet, made it work. The pure electronic vibes of true, pure, love"


Tom will be missed by his daughters, Harley Fullerton and Jennifer Fullerton; bonus daughters, Melanie Porter and Jessika Griffin; companion, Kim Blair; brothers, Gerald Hutzelman & wife, Vickie, Al Fullerton, Jr. & wife, Arline; step-sisters, Karen and Sharon; step-brother, Bud; 10 grandchildren and a special nephew, Travis Fullerton.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents, brother, Ronald Fullerton and nephew, Christopher Fullerton.


Tom requested that no visitation or services be held for him.


Memorial contributions may be sent to the Smith-McQuiston & Webster Funeral Home, PO Box 14, Fountain City, IN 47341.

I'd also like to add Harley and I both know that he would want everyone to remember happy memories and not to be bummed that he's gone. Don't mourn his loss celebrate his life that he lived. A free spirit, without a care in the world, he was such a dork.

Dad you were such a character. I remember going on goofy rides to nowhere. I love doing that with my kids too. I know we didn't have a close relationship but I just need you to know. I did love you, I didn't say it often but I did love you. Im still processing the fact that you're gone and that I will never get those phone calls from you again. Im so sorry dad. I should have always taken your calls even when I was upset with you. I think the day I can listen to Cheeseburger in Paradise by Jimmy Buffett without crying will be the day that I start to heal. I remember driving in your convertible with you with the top down and you would swerve on the road because of that song because of the lyrics and I always think it's so funny to think of those times with you because I do that with my kids too. I miss you please tell Grandma and Grandpa I love them too and in the next life I'll do better to have a relationship with you I'm so sorry that I didn't get to say goodbye and that I miss that phone call shortly before you passed. I know I'm rambling random things I don't know why maybe it's my way of processing my feelings. I feel lost right now dad, you know I take death hard and it sucks that this happened, but I know you're no longer suffering you're not in pain anymore. You helped give me life and I love you for that I could never thank you enough for that. I wish that this would have never happened I wish that I could get your phone call again and answer it and maybe you'd still be here Dad. You lived a wildlife you were a free spirit! But now you're truly free. Until we meet again I love you it's not goodbye forever it's just goodbye for now. 👉👈🥺

Tom, aka Tommy, was my first boyfriend. He was so cute and sweet. When I saw him at our 10 year reunion he had changed alot but still so sweet. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. My heart is sad.
