Roger William Fuller passed away on January 17, 2022, at Grossmont Hospital just 2 days after his 84th birthday. He was born in Vallejo, California to Ernest and Christina Fuller but lived most of his life in El Cajon, California. He graduated from El Cajon Valley High school in June of 1957. It was in high school that he met Carol, his wife of 61 years.
In 1969 he became involved with Boy Scouts and served as Scoutmaster of Troop 343 for 10 years. He enjoyed the outdoor life, camping, backpacking and canoeing with the boys, family, and friends. Especially going to the top of Mt. Whitney in 1975. He also became part of the Order of the Arrow as a vigil member. He spent many volunteer hours at Mataguay Scout Camp and Camp Winacka (Girl Scout camp) helping to improve and repair the facilities.
He and Carol took many trips to the Hawaiian Islands and chose Maui as his favorite. His love of the outdoors took on a new meaning when he became a certified scuba diver so he could spend time under the water. He was especially thrilled when his son, daughter and oldest grandson also chose to become certified so they could join him on trips under the sea.
After retiring they also took trips to Northern California enjoying the wineries and vineyards, especially the out of way small vineyards. It became hard to choose his favorite place.
Roger is survived by his wife Carol, his sister Ann Silveria of San Jose, his son Gene and daughter-in-law Molly Fuller and his daughter Julie Fuller all of San Diego, California. Also, his beloved four grandchildren: Matthew Thelen, Erin Fuller, Sean Fuller and Kendall Lack. The hole in our hearts is huge and we will miss him deeply. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
