Wayne Fulton

Lieu de décès : Hampton, Nouveau Brunswick, Canada
Date de décès : 3 juillet 2010

The death of Wayne Sherwood Fulton of Hampton, husband of Anne Fulton, occurred July 03, 2010 at his residence. Born in 1937, he was the son of the late Russell and Lorna (Sypher) Fulton. Wayne grew up at Newcastle Creek near the shore of Grand Lake in Queen's County, New Brunswick. Following graduation from Minto Memorial High School, he served ten years in the Royal Canadian Air Force with postings in Nova Scotia and Germany. Interested in art and design from a young age, he then attended the famed Chicago Art Institute in Illinois. On his return to New Brunswick he joined Jim Stackhouse at Stackhouse Studios Ltd. in Saint John as a graphic designer. Upon Jim's retirement Wayne became owner and principal designer of the firm and later formed Fulton Graphics Ltd. where he continued with his staff to provide design services to leading New Brunswick businesses over many years. Upon retirement several years ago, he was able to pursue fulltime the many outdoor activities and hobbies he had enjoyed since becoming a Queen's Scout in his teens. Sailing "TARA V" from the Royal Kennebecasis Yacht Club with family and friends to Grand Lake and destinations in the Bay of Fundy and along the Maine Coast was a highlight of his summers. Duck hunting in the Grand Lake meadows and in recent years the Kennebecasis marshes was an annual Fall event of comradery and tradition enjoyed by Wayne, his Dad, sons and friends over his lifetime. Canoeing and kayaking the still waters of the Kennebecasis near his home, sighting wildlife along the shore, in the forests and sky brought him great pleasure. In addition to tapping maple trees for syrup and pressing apples for cider, Wayne, aboard his prized tractor, worked almost daily transforming the family acreage on Norton Shore from dense woods overlooking the river to park-like pastures and trails for riding and hiking where he and his wife, Anne, enjoyed time with visiting grandchildren and with their horses. Winter sojourns with Anne to The Marlborough Sounds in her native New Zealand, many reunions with his Queen's County cousins and friends, as well as visits with his children and grandchildren in Western Canada, were a source of special joy for him and a source of good tales told around campfires and kitchen tables to friends and family. Wayne, like his parents before him, passed along his appreciation of nature and its wonders to the younger generations of his family for whom his love and pride were immense and forever. In addition to his loving wife, Anne, he leaves four generations of family members who will miss his humour, hard work, story-telling, creativity, the innumerable skills and talents that he shared, and, above all, his love. Wayne is survived by two daughters, Tia (Douglas) Bumstead, Edmonton, Alberta, Taraha (Paul) Dixon, Golden, BC; two sons, Trevor Fulton, Kingston, NB, Thomas Fulton, Golden, BC; one sister Myrna (David) White, Kingston, NB; one step- daughter, Madeleine Rawlence, New Zealand; two step-sons, David Rawlence, New Zealand and Michael (Leah) Rawlence of Ottawa; six grandchildren, two step- grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
Although there will be no visitation or funeral service, there will be a remembrance of his life, Wayne's family, friends and colleagues are invited to gather at The Lighthouse River Centre, 1075 Main Street, Hampton on Wednesday, July 7th from 2 to 4pm. The arrangements are entrusted to Reid's Funeral Home, 1063 Main Street, Hampton, (506) 832 5541. Memorials to a charity of the donor's choice would be appreciated by the family.
