Archie Douglas Fuller (1884–1950)

from Kiama Independent

Another link with the early pioneers of Kiama was severed on Monday, 24th July, by the passing in Kiama District Hospital of Mr. Archie Douglas Fuller at the age of 66 years.

Although he had been in indifferent health for some years, his sudden death came as a shock to a wide circle of friends who knew a good friend and neighbour.

The second youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. G. L. Fuller, of Kiama and Dunmore, he had lived all his life in Dunmore carrying on dairying on his farm until ill-health caused his retirement some years ago.

Although of rather a retiring nature he had a good sense of humour and made a host of friends. In an unobtrusive way he was a good supporter of any worthy cause and was always willing to help anyone in need.

He was a life member of Kiama District Hospital and a good supporter of the Institution.

He had been a member of the Kiama Bowling Club for many years and was well known by bowlers along the Coast.

He did not marry and is survived by three brothers, Alfred (Wellington), Colin (Beverley Hills) and Brian (Killara) and two sisters Florence (Mrs. Palmer, Dubbo) and Edith (Rose Bay).

Other members of the family who predeceased him were Sir George, Ada (Mrs. H. Baird), William, Emily (Mrs. Anderson) and Minnie (Mrs. M. F. Morton).

The funeral left Kiama Presbyterian Church on Tuesday last for the Kiama Cemetery. Rev. W. D. Mcllwraith officiated.

Messrs. A. Jones, G. E. Chittick, G. Kelleher, G. King, A. Hillman and R. Baird acted as pall-bearers.

Floral tributes were received from the following: –

Flo and family; The Baird Family; Alf. Maude and family; Colin and Amy; Mr. and Mrs. Bryan Fuller and family; Lady Fuller and George Fuller and family; Kenneth and Bery1; Fred and Hope; Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Cook (Rose Bay); Leith and Helen Gillespie; Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Brown, Brighton Hotel, Kimina; Mr. and Mrs. Alf Jones, Molly and Harold Tuohy; The Weston Family; The Hambly Bros.; Mrs. Kendall and Mr. and Mrs. Keith Kendall; Mr. and Mrs. J. Moore, Minnamurra; The President and Members of the Kiama Bowling Club; The Board of Directors of the Kiama District Hospital; The President and Members of the Kiama Golf Club.

The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr. Keith Kendall, of Kiama.
