John graduated from Galesburg High School in Illinois in 1955. He served in the Army National Guard from 1959-1960. John began working for El Paso Products in 1963 in Odessa, TX, what then became Shell Oil Refinery. He married JoAnn Fuller, the love of his life, on October 7, 1964. John received his BBA in Accounting from the University of Texas Permian Basin in 1975. He worked at Shell until his retirement in 1997. Together John and JoAnn raised two children, John and Nancy.
John was an avid Mojo fan, seldom missing a game. He also loved watching sports with his son John. John also enjoyed drinking coffee with his friends and hardly missed a morning with his buddies until he became ill. He loved spoiling his children, grandchildren, and great- grandchildren. You could find him taking them to and from school, helping with homework, watching their sporting and dance events, and making them laugh with his dry sense of humor. 85 years was not enough time.
Preceding John in death are his parents, Miles and Lennie Fuller, brother Tom Fuller, and his beloved wife, JoAnn Fuller.
John is survived by his children, John Fuller and wife Wendy Fuller of Odessa, TX, Nancy Mohesky and husband Lance Mohesky of Georgetown, TX; grandchildren, Megan Criswell and husband Kyle Criswell, Alec Fuller and fiancé Christiana Lee, Madelyn Mohesky, and Tara Berry. John is also survived by his great grandchildren, Cody and Kylie Criswell, Darian Ahrendt, and Samantha Berry; as well as several nieces and nephews.
He leaves a huge hole in our hearts filled with many great memories. Our Dad, Grandpa, Big John, and Papa is greatly missed.
