John Howard Fullerton, 78, of Melrose, passed from this life on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at his home following a brief illness. He was a native of Green Cove Springs. John was a hard-working, intelligent, and playful man whose presence filled any room he entered. He began his career as an enlisted mechanic and retired 38 years later as a full Colonel in Air Force Special Operations. He was passionate about politics, his church, his country, and the Gators. He loved God, his wife and family, and leaves a void in many hearts.
He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Priscilla Fullerton, son, Rev. Dr. John H. Fullerton, Jr., daughters, Terri Fullerton Abrams, and Karen R. Fullerton, sibling, Rick Fullerton, Clay Fullerton and Lynn Perry, 8 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.

Karen and I were very saddened when we heard the news that John had passed away. Working with John at HQ AFSOC in the logistics directorate, it was always a pleasure to see the professionalism he always portrayed. He was a true maintainer and did his very best to take care of his people. I was very grateful for being able to follow in his footsteps when he retired from leading the maintenance division (LGM). God Speed to the family! Tom Kleiv, Col USAF Retired.

I'm very sorry for the loss that you've all had to endure. John was only a memory from my childhood, but a strong one. I've heard about him my entire life, and he was always good about reaching out from time to time with a written note. At my christening, I'm told, he let me try beer. This led to an everlasting nickname of Uncle Beer. I'll miss you Uncle Beer!

I’m so sorry for your loss. Grief can be a difficult emotion to deal with. There are, however, 12 basic guidelines that can help you cope with grieving. They’re used by many grief counselors and they’re also biblical. You can download a free copy of the magazine titled “Help for those who Grieve “
