November 30, 1952 - May 28, 2021
David Wendell Fuller, a friend to many with a big heart and an even bigger smile, died Friday May 28, 2021 at the age of 68. Dave was born November 30, 1952 in Lansing to Wendell and Faunita (Mayo) Fuller. Growing up in Charlotte, David graduated from Charlotte High. Following High School he served his country in the US Army during the Vietnam War. In 1972 he married Mary Frances (Fran) Pawli. Together they raised their son Bradley. Many people will remember Dave as the owner of Blue Ribbon Meat Products. He sold all kinds of meats, and other delicacies door to door to people throughout Eaton County and beyond. People loved to see Dave pull into the drive, not only for the product he brought with him, but also for his smile and story he might share. His “gift of gab” made him a friend to all he met. After his retirement in 2018, Dave couldn’t sit still so he started driving for Uber, and as a master conversationalist he was the perfect Uber driver. His unique organizational abilities and his connections made through his business travels enabled him to help develop the Charlotte Junior Orioles Baseball program and help build the CJO baseball fields at the American Legion in Charlotte. At home Dave would tinker and fix a number of things. His wife referred to him as her “MacGyver” who could fix anything. His favorite times at home were when ALL the family was over. He loved to entertain. Especially if he could share his best bartending concoction, the “BBC.” Dave is survived by his wife, Fran; their son, Bradley (Melisa) Fuller; and granddaughter, Hazel Fuller; brother, Rod (Betsy) Fuller; and sister, Rhonda Fuller. He was predeceased by his brother Bill Fuller and his parents.
