Kevin Merrill Fullmer (61) passed away after a fall on December 30, 2018 in Ogden, Utah. He was born on December 6, 1957 in Idaho Falls, Idaho to Boyd Leigh Fullmer and Evelyn Mary Parkinson. He was raised in Clearfield, Utah.
Kevin attended Wasatch Elementary, South Clearfield, Hill Field, TH Bell High, and Bonneville High School in Ogden. He also later spent some time in the Army. He has graduated Magna Cum Laude from the school of hard knocks, where he took a pretty good beating, beginning at a young age.
He was a boat captain for oil rigs on the Great Salt Lake and was a commercial artist of murals for companies throughout Ogden. He also had a great reputation for his excellent work as a house painter. “The dude could paint!”
Kevin enjoyed playing the guitar and provided music at restaurants. He could also paint or draw anything on anything with anything! He was always kind, generous, and considerate, and he rarely visited without trying to give you something. Kevin had an active sense of humor and made friends quickly. He loved to ride his bike, read, and complain about politicians.
Kevin cherished his son Dan. There would never be a conversation where he wasn’t mentioned.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
He is survived by his father, Boyd (Carolyn) Fullmer (Logan, UT); sister, Kristan (Nolan) Hess (Tremonton, UT); brothers, Boyd Darren Fullmer (Roy, UT), Douglas Boyd (Karen) Fullmer (Logan, UT); son, Daniel Merrill Fullmer (Ogden, UT); grandson, Gabriel Olguin (Fullmer); 7 nieces, and 7 nephews.
Kevin is preceded in death by his mother, Evelyn Mary Parkinson Fullmer Lane; sister, Dalene Janae Fullmer Bird; and grandparents, Walter and Addie Fullmer, Merrill and Shirley Parkinson.
