Obituaries


FULLER, Leo A., long time Holbrook resident, passed away peacefully after a period of failing health on September 21, 2017 with his loving family by his side. He was 83. Born and raised in Boston, Leo lived in Holbrook for nearly 40 years. Leo proudly served his country, retiring as a Technical Sergeant from the United States Air Force, after nearly 21 years. He served several tours during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. His service to his country was the catalyst for his appreciation of “The Greatest Generation.” It led him to one of his greater joys --- being a well-studied and pride-filled WWII aficionado. Leo also enjoyed working for the Archdiocese of Boston for many years, in the parishes of St. Joseph in Holbrook and St. Francis of Assisi in Braintree. Never one to sit still, after his retirement, Leo became a dedicated employee and apprentice at Cartwright Funeral Homes and most recently served as the Town of Holbrook Veteran’s Agent. Involvement in his community through service and faith was important to him. He was an active member of both St. Joseph’s Parish in Holbrook as well as St. Mary’s Parish in Randolph. While at St. Joseph’s, Leo served on many boards and committees, including his “claim to fame” as the Member in Charge of the Parish Bingo. He also served as the Chairman for its annual Parish Bazaar and was an usher for many years. Leo was a member of the Holbrook Knights of Columbus, Randolph Lodge of Elks and VFW, and the Dalton Post. He continued his history of service as a Town Meeting Member for the Town of Holbrook. He enjoyed dancing and traveling, but his greatest joy came from entertaining and spending time with family and friends. He will be remembered as a true and devoted husband, happy father, and proud grandfather. Leo was the devoted husband of the late Elizabeth (Carty) Fuller. He was the loving father of Brinsley A. Fuller and his wife Wini of Framingham and Damien R. Fuller and his longtime companion Sarah Markesich of Weymouth. He was the dear grandfather of Elizabeth L. Fuller and William A. Fuller. Leo was the brother of L. William Fuller, Jr. and his wife Marie of Braintree, Juanita Curran of Kingston, and Everett Fuller and his wife Kevin Marie of Washington. He was also the dear friend of Lesley and Kevin Sullivan of E. Falmouth. Leo had several nieces and nephews and extended family. Reposing at the Cartwright Funeral Home, 69 South Franklin Street (Rt. 37) Holbrook, until 9:30 AM on Wednesday, Oct. 4th, followed by a Funeral Mass at 10:30 AM in St. Joseph’s Church, 153 South Franklin Street, Holbrook. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend. Visiting hours Tuesday, Oct. 3rd from 4:00 – 8:00 PM. A private burial will take place Thursday in the Massachusetts National Cemetery, Bourne. Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be made in Leo’s name to a Veteran’s charity of your choice.
