January 19, 1938- December 25, 2015
It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Stan Fuller after a brave and courageous battle with cancer. Stan was born in Dauphin, Manitoba on January 19, 1938 and passed away peacefully with his loving family by his side at his home in Courtenay, BC on Christmas Day.
Stan was predeceased by his father Charles Fuller in 1974, his mother Carrie Fuller in 2005, his brother Clifford Fuller in 1946 and his son Kenneth Fuller in 1983.
Stan is survived and greatly missed by his wife of 30 years Deirdre Behan, son Carl (Heather), daughter Lana (Neil) and his dear granddaughter Jenna” the light of his life.” Stan is survived by his sons Rick (Laurie), David (Earl) , Dan (Jeannie). Grandchildren Jason (Jen), Michael, Dane, Reid, Kent, Tia and Kyle. Great-granddaughters Avery and Sophie. Stan is also survived by his sister Pat (Jim) , brother Clayton (Janet) and numerous nieces and nephews.
Stan was a patient, kind, loving family man with a positive attitude and a great sense of humour. He was a “people person” who valued his friendships. Stan loved his life at “Stonehenge Farm”, playing his guitar and harmonica, painting, skiing, playing hockey, fishing, hunting, working around the farm , spending time with family and friends and taking leisurely walks with his Jack Russell “Taz”.
The family would like to thank Dr. Bakshi, Dr. Blacklock and the V.I. H.A. Palliative Nurses that cared for Stan during his illness. He was so very grateful for your support , respect and concern. We would also like to thank all of Stan’s family and friends for their continuing phone calls, visits and support during his illness. Stan appreciated you all.
Thanks to Eric and Emma at Toneff Funeral Services for their caring, compassionate services upon Stan’s passing.
A celebration of Stan’s life will be held at a later date. Stan continued to maintain his good humour and good spirits throughout his battle remarkably so, even on his final day, he was amazing!
His wish for us all is…“Be strong and carry on.
The sun will shine again.”
