Anthony Fulmer, 73, of Massillon, passed away unexpectedly at home on July 23, 2018. He was born July 13, 1945, the son of the late Jennie and Anthony Fulmer.
Anthony was a lifelong resident of Massillon, and since his youth, spent winters in Leesburg, Florida.
He had an outgoing personality and a long list of people, places, and activities that he truly enjoyed. Dining out, trying new restaurants, traveling, and meeting new people were among his favorite activities. He was a fan of all sports, from high school teams to professional. He was a regular at local movie theaters and would sometimes see two movies in a day. He enjoyed dinner theaters in Ohio and Florida, and liked to attend Football Hall of Fame events.
Anthony loved to travel and was usually planning his next trip. He visited Disney World every winter, and in recent years made regular visits to Mount Airy, NC, Pigeon Forge, TN, and Williamsburg, VA.
In addition to his surviving family, Anthony will be especially missed by Anne, Susan and Steve, long-time friends who met Anthony in Florida; his Ohio friends Art and Jim who often dined with Anthony at local restaurants; Vernon, his friend and good neighbor in Leesburg; and his family of friends at Huntington Private Bank in Canton, who spoke with Anthony every weekday for many years.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Lynn Deibel Fulmer; and brothers, Frank Fulmer and Vincent Fulmer. He is survived by a sister, Anita Cahill; nieces and nephews, Cathy Emch, Gail Fulmer, Kevan Fulmer, Kristine Claycomb, David Fulmer, Amy Mundie, Charles Fulmer and Alma Leigh Fulmer; and his canine companion, Susan.
Anthony will be buried in St. Barbara’s Church cemetery with his parents. A memorial service will be held at St. Barbara’s Catholic Church, on August 10, 2018 at 10 am, with Fr. Brian Kline officiating.
