In loving memory of Frank Louis Fuller, born 10/27/1947, who passed peacefully on 7/24/2023 in Sonoma California after a courageous 7-year battle with Cancer.
He is survived by his daughter, Joanna Fuller- Lowe (Joseph) Selah WA; Grandchildren Michael Bronson and Katie Neifert (Josh); Great-Grandson Joseph Weber; and “chosen” children dear to his heart, Eric Muth (Cathy) Napa, CA and Angela Ibleto-Dellinger Petaluma, CA; as well as siblings John Fuller (Donna) Murrieta CA, Jeanne Wilkes (Randy) Santa Rosa, CA and Pamela Fuller-Myers Yuba City, CA.
Frank was a life-long butcher who in his early years started vocational training working at Mendocino State Hospital. In 1965 his first real job was at Food City. Later he went to Hamilton Airforce base commissary which is where he really learned the trade. He learned the slaughtering side of the business at Countryside meats before moving on to Royal Tallow in Petaluma. He then worked for five years at Sonoma Valley Meats in Schellville before working at Angelo's Meats for a while and owning his own kill truck and knife sharpening business which he worked in his free time around his regular job. In the mid 80's to early 90's Frank lived in Napa and managed the meat department at Browns Valley Market. He built a beautiful custom home in Browns Valley, which he loved .Frank ended up at Sonoma Market from 1992 until he retired due to his illness in 2016 - a job he absolutely loved along with all the people he worked with and encountered day to day.
Frank was always willing to help his friends, he could be found driving elderly friends to Dr. Appointments, shopping trips and an occasional trip to a casino for lunch. He assisted in cleaning up a church property behind his home and would make sure that all the neighbor's garbage cans were brought back up to their homes after they were empty. Frank was an avid antique shopper who referred to himself as a "lookey loo". He was drawn to anything metal and had a genuine love for old bells, always researching every item he purchased to get its history. He was Hardworking and always striving to perfect his skill. He kept busy with “projects”, whether for himself or helping others. Frank had a smile that would light up any room. Frank loved his food (Meat) whether it was the lamb shank at Dela Santini's, Ribeye steak at Cattlemen's or a Burger at the Mill in Glen Ellen, he enjoyed it all, but he really enjoyed sharing it with family and friends and was always sneaky about paying the bill before the meal was over.
Frank was blessed for the last 10 months of his life to have his biological daughter, Joanna Lowe in his life. Joanna found Frank through a DNA test. After their first meeting all could see how strong the genetic bond is and Franks life came full circle in love and family.
A Commemoration of the life of Frank will be held at Duggan's Mission Chapel, West Napa Street, Sonoma, CA USA on Thursday August 3rd from 3 to 6 pm and will be open to all those who wish to attend.
