Frank M. Fuller July 31, 1931 – October 16, 2019

Heaven gained an angel when Frank Fuller passed from this world on October 16, 2019 at the age of 88.

He was born on July 31, 1931 in Lomita, California, the son of Frank and Ruth (Osborne) Fuller.  While still in high school, Frank joined the Air Force Reserves.  After graduating from Torrance High School, he married the love of his life, Phyllis Galligan. Soon after, he was called to duty.   After serving his country, he began a career as a machinist, retiring after 45 years from the Marine Terminals in Long Beach California as a machinist and portainer crane specialist. A successful and loving marriage of almost seventy years blessed Frank and Phyllis with five children that they raised in the Catholic Church. Frank, later joined the Knights of Columbus when they moved to Fallon after retirement.

Frank was always active with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. From playing catch with a baseball or a softball to throwing and catching a football, he was there. He taught us all to fish, to pitch camp, and he encouraged us as we learned to swim. There were many, many awesome road trips. He was active as a father in boy scouts helping the boys with their car derbies, boy scout jamborees, the girls with their father daughter dances and chaperoning girl scout camp. Dad loved playing golf with his brother in laws Danny and Chuck as well as his golf buddies in Fallon.  Phyllis and he loved traveling by motor home exploring the west coast states.  Frank will forever be loved and remembered by his family. His hugs will be missed most of all.

He is proceeded in death by his parents, brothers, Buster & Chris, and sisters, Grace & Lilly.  He was also preceded in death by his daughter-in-law Debra, and sons-in-law Brian and Jim. He is survived by his wife Phyllis, sons Steve (Meredith), Rick (Debbie), his daughters, Terri (Pat), Pam (Charlie), Cindy and many awesome grandchildren and great grandchildren. Services will be held at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Fallon, Nevada on November 16, 2019 at 11:00 am with a reception to follow.
