On November 19, 1875, he was united in marriage to Viola Sanders. This union was blessed with four children: Mrs. Millie Dulin, of Lake Village; Shelby, who passed away in 1919; Harry W., at home; and Ray W., of Chicago Heights.
Later he moved to Chicago where he was employed by E.W. Blatchford and Company for over 25 years. About the time he and family moved to Chicago, he started working on a wild goose call; later he had it patented and it is now all over the U.S. and Canada as the Fuller Goose Call. Some years later he also patented a call known as the Fuller Combination Duck and Goose Call.
In 1906 he moved to Schneider, living there four years, then moved to the present home, where he and his son, Harry, lived. In 1889 he was baptized in the First Methodist church of Chicago, where he always kept his membership.
Left to mourn are his three children; six grandchildren; five great grandchildren; one brother, Elmer, of Steger, Ill.; and a host of friends.
