Robert Preston Fuller, Jr. was born February 11, 1940 and passed away peacefully on Friday, July 16, 2010 at home with his family at his side. He is survived by his wife, Terri; two children, Robert (Michelle) of Fallbrook, Shelly (Layne); five grandchildren, Landon, Hailie, Preston, Megan, and Austin; sisters, Sally (Ed), Sue (Dennis); and many nieces & nephews.

Bob served in the Coast Guard from 1958-1966. He lived in Vista and was owner of Capitol Paving Inc. for over 34 years. Bob was active in the community by supporting many local organizations in Vista including Rotary, Chamber of Commerce, Boys & Girls Club, YMCA Soccer and the Vista High School Regimental Band.

Bob dedicated his life to helping others through Optimist Clubs, with over 32 years as a member, achieving the honor of serving as an International Vice President. His love of the water later led him to the Oceanside Yacht Club where he served as Commodore in 2008.

Bob’s personal motto was “Friendship is a gift you give yourself” and he truly had an abundance of presents.

The family wishes to thank Elizabeth Hospice in Escondido for their love and constant care of Robert. A Memorial will be held 3 p.m., Saturday, August 7, at Vista Optimist Club in Vista, Calif.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, a donation be made in Bob’s name to the Vista Optimist Foundation, PO Box 272, Vista, CA 92083.
