Clayton Robert Fuller, 1973 -2004
CLAYTON ROBERT FULLER PASSES AWAY AT AGE 31
Clayton Robert Fuller, the first of three children, was born on April 6, 1973 in Barrhead, Alberta to Randy and Debbie Fuller and passed away May 2, 2004. Living in numerous places throughout Central and Northern Alberta as a young child, Clayton met many people. His school days began at Chipman Elementary, and then moved on to Thorhild Elementary, and lastly to High Prairie Elementary until his grade 9 year at Prairie River Jr. High school, when his family moved to Girouxville, Alberta. There, Clayton finished 9th grade at École Girouxville, the attended Georges P. Vanier in Donnelly and E.W. Pratt in High Prairie, Alberta from grades 10 to 12 for his high school years.
With his genuinely sincere personality he made plenty of friends, most of whom he still kept in touch with as an adult. This is just one of the many ways Clayton showed his devotion to people who knew him. Helping out friends and family was just part of who Clayton seemed to be. When Mom & Dad went into business for themselves in 1990, Clayton was right there to support them. Even though he was only 17 years old, he offered to invest his ideas, time and the little money he had into the business. Making it the successful little company it is today.
Marrying his high school sweetheart Jessica Cloutier on Aug. 12, 1995, Clayton was enthusiastic about starting a family in the quaint home they had fixed up together in Donnelly, Alberta. On July 19, 1996, Jessica and Clayton were blessed with a baby boy, Hayes Dale Robert. Devoting most of his spare time to Hayes was not difficult for Clayton; he truly loved the little boy he and Jessica created, and seeing Hayes model his dad in dress as well through action, it was clear that dad and son had a special bond.
Although Hayes was Clayton's primary passion, he had a lot of other extra curricular interests that he loved to perfect. Activities such as volleyball, soccer, hunting, fishing, bodybuilding, traveling and of course riding around in his white Chevy that he rebuilt himself were just some of the many things Clayton loved to do.
In May of 2002, Clayton, Jessica and Hayes moved to Whitecourt, Alberta to pursue other career opportunities and to be closer to the city. Clayton took an operator's position with Talisman Energy and then with Apache Canada until his untimely death in May of this year.
Clayton was predeceased by his grandfather, William Fuller (1996), Dale Perry (1994), and grandmother, Nellie Fuller (1983). He is survived by Hayes Fuller (son), Jessica Fuller (wife), Deb and Randy Fuller (parents), Shelley and Robert Lauzé (sister and brother-in-law), Curtis and Kim (Gervais) Fuller (brother and sister-in-law), Lauren Lauzé (niece), Justin and Dalyn Lauzé and Braden and Darian Fuller (nephews), Ardyth Perry (grandmother), Elda Glover (great-grandmother), and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
