Timothy Joseph “Timmy” Fullin


Timothy Joseph “Timmy” Fullin of Edgartown died Sept. 20, 2014, at his home following a two-year battle with lung cancer. He was 65.

Tim was born May 13, 1949, in Oak Bluffs to the late Remo L. and Alice E. Fullin of Vineyard Haven. Tim graduated from Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School in 1968. He served in the U.S. Army from April 21, 1969, to Jan. 21, 1971, in Vietnam.

Tim was in the heating business his whole life. For a time he worked for his uncle, Augustus B. Campos, who owned ABC Oil Co., which Tim eventually bought and ran. He then started Fullin Heating with his son Keith, along with help from his son T.R.

Tim was an avid golfer, spending many afternoons at his beloved Mink Meadows, where he owned the 1996 and 1998 club championships. He enjoyed darts, fishing, and spending time with friends at the P.A. Club. He was also a life member of the VFW.

Tim is survived by his wife of 40 years, Linda Fullin; his daughter Veronica; his son T.R.; his son Keith and Keith’s wife Whitney; and six grandchildren, Devin, Eva, Colby, Emery, Bo, and Camden, whom he loved dearly. He is further survived by three brothers, Philip and wife Carol, Remo and wife Patricia, and Nicky and wife Jackie, along with many nieces and nephews.

Tim loved to tell jokes and make people laugh. His quick-witted teasing meant he cared about you. His spirit will live forever in the hearts of those who knew him.

A graveside service will be held Monday, Oct. 6, 2014, at 11 am at the New Westside Cemetery in Edgartown. Following the burial, please join his family and friends in celebrating his life at a potluck gathering at the P.A. Club in Oak Bluffs.
