Robert Lee “Bob” Fuller was born November 24, 1946 in Towanda, a son of the late Marshall and Bertha (Doud) Fuller. He was a graduate of Athens High School’s class of 1964 and earned a degree in Phlebotomy from BOCES College in Binghamton, NY. He served his country in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army. Bob was employed at GTP in Towanda for 23 years and he was an ER Tech at the old Troy Hospital. Since retiring Bob drove for EMTA. In earlier years, he was very involved in fitness and working out and was a trainer at Healthy Habits Gym. Always his grandchildren’s biggest fan, Bob loved going to watch them in any sport or activity. He proudly supported them in all their interests and accomplishments. He had his own special nickname for each grandchild and great grandchild; on occasion he’d have to ask what their real name was. He also loved to garden and be busy outside. Bob was such a “people person”. He was loved by many and is already greatly missed. May you now rest in peace.
