Fuller, Robert Miller (1862–1880)

A case of death far more untimely–to employ the usual phrase–than that mentioned above, is presented in the decease of Robert, the second son of G. L. Fuller, Esq. J.P., who at the early age of seventeen, while spending a University holiday with his family, died, after a few days' illness, early on the morning of Friday last. The affection of which he died was, we understand, of the nature of rheumatic fever. It is hardly necessary to say that this melancholy event has given rise, throughout the town and vicinity, to the strongest feelings of regret for a promising career so early terminated, and of sympathy with those upon whom the bereavement falls. The remains of the deceased were interred on Saturday afternoon at the public cemetery, Porter's Garden; the hearse being followed thither by a large proportion of the inhabitants of Kiama, Shellharbour, and other parts of the district. Mr. Fuller some months ago matriculated at the Sydney University, and was domesticated at St. Andrew's college, where he was pursuing his studies under the direction of the esteemed principal.
