Richard David Fuller
September 18, 2020

On September 18th, Heaven received their newest angel. Richard David Fuller, 77, Dunmore, entered into eternal rest from myelofibrosis, a very rare and uncurable form of leukemia.

Born in Peckville on August 16, 1943, he was the son of the late Joseph and Kathryn Barczyk Fuller.  He resided in Archbald until he married his wife and moved to Dunmore.  He attended St. Thomas School, Archbald, and was a 1962 graduate of Archbald High School.  After graduating high school, he went to work for his father in the construction business, then joined the U.S. Air Force in 1963, serving in the United States, Greece, France, Turkey and Germany.  While in the Air Force, he served as an honor guard.  After an honorable discharge, he moved back home and started working in inventory control at Jacquilin Cochren in Moosic.  After the plant closed, he went to work at Inter Metro Industries, Plains Township, as inventory control manager.  After 43 years, he retired in January 2014.

Richard enjoyed reading, cruises, and traveling with his family.
