Frank Brian Fuller, a gift from God to us, came into this world February 21, 1969. He was born to Ethel Graves Fuller and the late Roy Wilson Fuller of Caswell County, NC. Frank transitioned from his earthly home on May 2, 2020 in Burlington, NC, after a long but valiant fight against cancer.
Frank committed his life to Christ at an early age and became a member of Burton Chapel Baptist Church.
Frank graduated from Bartlett Yancey Senior High School in 1987. While attending “BY” Frank played four years of high school football which led him to a full athletic scholarship to Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.
Frank’s passion for football at Liberty University was evident. The tight bonds formed by he and his teammates are as strong today as they were years ago. He was affectionately known as “Big Frank” by his teammates and peers. The gentle giant was known for his positivity, being good natured, and having a down to earth spirit. He earned a degree in Business Finance from the University. He continued his education at North Carolina A&T State University earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Frank enjoyed his job as an Engineering Resource Manager at General Dynamics in McLeansville, NC.
Frank has always been an avid outdoorsman. From early childhood he enjoyed hunting and farming alongside his Dad. On the farm is where he developed his strong work ethics, and it was there where he cultivated his love for machinery and tools. On any given Saturday you would usually find Frank working on his family farm and doing anything he could to help those in the community.
