Fuller, George Lawrence (1832–1917)

After a protracted illness, Mr. George Lawrence Fuller, father of Mr. G. W. Fuller, Acting Premier, died at his home at Dunmore, in the Shell harbour district, on Sunday. The late Mr. Fuller was 83 years of age, and had lived the whole of his life in that district, of which he was looked upon as one of the pioneers. For many years he took an active part in all public movements, and up till the last he evinced a lively interest in all local charitable and benevolent matters. He was universally regarded as a most benevolent man. His business activities were very extensive, and included the ownership of large blue metal quarries in the district. The members of the family are:–Mr: G. W. Fuller (Acting Premier), Lieut. Colonel Fuller, in charge of a Light Horse regiment in Egypt. Mr. A. E. Fuller (Wellington), Mr. Brian Fuller, barrister-at-law, and up till recently associate to the Chief Justice, Mr. Archie Fuller and Mr. William Fuller, both of whom are unmarried, and live at Dunmore. The daughters are Mrs. T. D. Palmer and Mrs. W. W. Baird, both of whom are residents of Dubbo, Mrs. Anderson of Dunmore, and Miss Edith Fuller, of Dunmore. The late Mrs. Mark Morton, wife of Mr. Mark Morton, M.L.A, was also a daughter. Mesdames Palmer and Baird, with their husbands proceeded to Dunmore to be present at the last sad offices. We offer our deep sympathy to the bereaved relatives.
