Gregory John Fuller of Monument, Colo., passed away at the age of 51 on July 1, 2013.
Greg was born in Saranac Lake, the son of Wendell and Patricia Fuller.
He is survived by his children, Allison and Ian; his fiancee, Grace; his dog, Mila; as well as six brothers and sisters: Teresa Reichhart, Susan Juckett, Paul Fuller, Mark Fuller, Jane Fuller and David Fuller; their spouses; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Greg fought a brave battle armed with amazing courage and dignity. Most people wouldn't know he was fighting cancer every day for the past three-and-a-half years because he had such a great outlook on life and had an upbeat, happy demeanor. He was an avid cyclist, both road and mountain biking. He competed in many races, and two years after being diagnosed with multiple myeloma, he cycled the inaugural 2011 "Double Triple Bypass" bicycle race, which is a great accomplishment for a healthy person. As his son wrote, "Greg was a funny, courteous, responsible man who was a pleasure to be around. He struggled with his disease while raising two teenagers, moving multiple times, working 40+ hours a week as a software engineer, and he somehow always had a smile on his face." He inspired everyone around him to enjoy each moment a little more and to stretch every day's potential to its fullest extent.
A fund for Greg's children is being established. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the "Fuller Family Children Fund," c/o Paul Fuller, 5123 South Perry Circle, Littleton, CO 80123. You could alternatively donate to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation in Greg's memory at www.themmrf.org.
A celebration of Greg's life will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9, at Monument Hill Country Club, 18945 Pebble Beach Way, Monument, Colo.
