Obituary for Chester David Fuller

God looked down into his garden and picked another flower known on this earth as Chester David Fuller. He flourished on this earth for 84 years and transitioned to a brighter garden on Thursday, April 1, 2021.

He was the first flower to bloom on December 1, 1936 from Sammie David Fuller and Barbara Allen Conley in Vado, New Mexico. Three more flowers bloomed from this union.

He planted his garden with the late Guadalupe Herrera who preceded him in death on August 4, 2020. In this garden four children bloomed. Lydia Desir of Van Nuys, CA, Ricardo H. Fuller (Anna Maria) of Chamberino, NM, Chester David Fuller, Jr. (Rebecca) of El Paso, TX, and Diana Ivonne Fuller better known as “Bambi” of Sunland Park, NM. Followed by eight grandchildren; Justine Ann, Luis, Roldan, Gabriela, Haley, Cristian, Taylor and Desiree and five great grandchildren.

His garden started to grow spiritually when he was baptized at an early age at Valley Grove Baptist Church in Vado, NM, where he served faithfully and continued growing when he later joined Bethel Second Baptist Church, Las Cruces, NM.

He yielded many accomplishments on his journey. While at Gadsden High School he was a varsity football player and received a scholarship to Trinidad Junior College in Trinidad, CO. He also attended New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM. After college he served in the U.S. Army. Upon his return from the Army, he planted his roots at Prudential Insurance Agency known as, “A Piece of the Rock”, as he would say. He grew with the company and was the top sales insurance agent for many years.

He joins the garden on the other side with his brother Robert Lee Fuller, sister Vera Walls, sister Effie Marie and parents. He leaves his garden to be tended to by, his sister Bobbie J. Boyer, children and a host of other relatives and friends.
