Doc was a loving man who was always willing to help anyone in need. He was known to have such a great attitude always having a smile on his face no matter what life threw at him. He would do anything he could to cheer someone up making everyone laugh whenever he could. He was witty to a fault and was so funny. He loved joking with whoever was around and had such an easy going laid back attitude. Doc’s presence always had a very calming effect on the people around him. He was also known to have quite the sweet tooth - ok a huge sweet tooth. He loved his M & M’s and making cakes or any sweet treats! Doc loved watching Survivor and Dancing With The Stars but really he just loved life. He loved being around his family and his friends.

Doc was preceded in death by his parents, Guy Roosevelt & Amy Louise Fultz; brothers, Bill & Larry Fultz; and wife, Barbara Fultz. He is survived by wife, Gail Fultz; daughter, Kayci Fultz; step-daughter, Darie Crim; step-son, Shawn Rutledge; son-in-law, Alex Predo; brother, Mike Fultz; grandchildren: Traven Rutledge, Saviah Rutledge, and Xavier Predo; and many more nieces, nephews, family, and friends.

Doc will be dearly missed by all but never forgotten.
