Carl C. Fullmer Obituary

Carl “Fuzz” Fullmer, 94, of Mishawaka, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by his loving family.

Carl was born in North Liberty on February 21, 1929 to Howard C. and Rachel E. (Tiedge) Fullmer.  After graduating from North Liberty High School, he honorably served in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict. Upon his return to the area, he founded “Twin Branch Auto” in 1957 where he dedicated himself until retirement in 2022.  On June 5, 1959 he married the love of his life, Jeanette A. Naragon and they shared over 64 cherished years together.  Carl enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating, racing cars and flying planes. He loved farming and John Deere tractors but his greatest joy was the company of family and friends.

Carl is survived by his loving wife, Jeanette, along with their daughters; Karen L. Fullmer of Mishawaka, and Eva M. (Eric) Snyder of South Bend. “Fuzz” was the proud grandfather of Daniel C. (Maddy) Snyder, Andrew B. Snyder and Rachel L. Snyder. He was the great grandfather of Greyson J. Snyder. Carl is survived by siblings, Louise Umbaugh of Osceola and Martin Fullmer of South Bend. He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters; Frances Buck and Edith Schmidt, along with four brothers, Harold, John, Arthur, and William Fullmer.
