Chris

My brother-in-law Chris

My little sister’s husband passed away on Thursday January 31st. I got a call at 7 in the morning from my mom, but my phone was in the basement and I missed it. Char missed a second call, and as I got to my phone my mom’s voice was on the other end saying “Chris is gone”.

Chris was a big guy. Not just big in stature (although he was that), but big in every way you can think.

He had huge hands. Hands that were refined by decades of manual labour, he was a mechanic, and could twist a bolt with ease that would make me give up.

He had a huge presence. He filled a room with his booming voice, and his big personality, but he could also fade into the background and just observe those around him.

He had a huge heart.

It’s no small irony that it was his huge heart which finally gave out.

Unexpectedly at home on Thursday, January 31st, 2019 Chris Fullard passed away.  Beloved husband of Annette Fullard for 16 years. Loving son of the late Liselotte and Anson Fullard.  Loved brother of Maureen Fullard, David and his wife Judy Fullard and Peter and his wife Michelle Fullard.  Dear son in law of Margaret and David Garside.
