Richard "Mitch" Fuller

Richard Miller "Mitch" Fuller, 65, of Clarks Summit, died Saturday at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center shortly after arrival.

Born April 13, 1956, in Scranton, he was the son of the late Charles and Janice Miller Fuller. A lifelong Clarks Summit resident, he was 1974 graduate of Abington Heights High School and he received his degree in business administration and accounting from Penn State University. He previously was employed by RCA - Thomson Electronics where he was a shipping supervisor. He later, before retirement, worked in shipping at the Walmart Distribution Center.

He was a member of the First Presbyterian Church Clarks Summit, and VFW Abington Memorial Post 7069. An avid golfer, he golfed in various leagues over the years. He was a true Penn State fan who also cheered for the Dallas Cowboys or Baltimore Orioles or whatever team was leading. An outdoorsman, Mitch enjoyed a competitive tennis match and was fond of kayaking where we would often enjoy the beauty of nature while reading his bible. "The mayor," as known by some, was always smiling cheerful and happy. His gentle smile will be sadly missed.

Surviving are a son, Andrew Fuller, Clarks Summit; two daughters, Jennifer Fuller and husband, Jacob Sipple, White Haven; Angela Earl and husband, Kenneth, Scranton; a brother, Charles Fuller and wife, Ellen, Mercerville, N.J.; his companion, Laurie Martino; two grandsons, Ethan King and Cameron Fuller; a granddaughter, Ava Earl; nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by sister, Alice Eck Crocker.

The family will receive relatives and friends Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m., with a service by the Rev. Rebecca J. Tanner, pastor of the Ashley Presbyterian Church, at 7 p.m. at the Jennings-Calvey Funeral and Cremation Service Inc., 111 Colburn Ave., Clarks Summit, PA 18411. Interment will be private at the convenience of the family in Newton Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit, 300 School St., Clarks Summit, PA 18411. For directions, or to leave an online condolence, visit the funeral home website.

I only had the pleasure of meeting Mitch once. But one time meeting Mitch, and you can tell right away he was a great man. He had a kind and welcoming way about him and big smile on his face. His son Andrew has proven to be one of my closest and dearest friends through the years. It absolutely breaks my heart to hear of his passing. Through the stories I have heard from Andrew in the past about him, and also in how highly Andrew has spoken about him through the years, I can only imagine how much this loss is hurting their family. Mitch, Andrew, and the entire Fuller family are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so very sorry for your loss. Rest in Peace good Sir, and God bless.

I'm very sorry to the Fuller family for your loss. Mitch was a very special person who cared about everybody. We had special times playing tennis and just talking sports. He will be truly missed and I know he already made a tee time up in heaven. RIP my friend and God Bless you and your family.

I hadn’t seen Mitch (still grappling with the whole Richard thing) for 20 plus years and I wasn’t watching for him and he walked up and gave me a hug. Two years later around June of COVID I golfed with him and he still gave me a hug. He lives on in each of you. My thoughts and best wishes to the family in this difficult time
