Joseph Lonzo Fullmore (Buck) was born on January 18, 1934 in Blacksher, Georgia. He went home to be with the Lord on December 3, 2020 after an extended illness. Joseph entered the U.S. Army on February 1, 1952 and received many medals as a result of his service to his country, including a Medal for Company of National Defense Service and Army of Occupation Medal-Germany. In 1955, Joseph relocated to Madison, Wisconsin, where he and his then wife Gloria Louise (Hamilton) Fullmore gave birth to his only daughter, Wanda Fullmore. Upon moving to Madison, a very close friendship developed with members of the Henderson/Harris family and they became like a family to him. Joseph eventually relocated to Miami, Florida, where he resided until June of 2018, when his daughter facilitated his move back to the Madison area so that he could spend his remaining years closer to her & his grandchildren. Joseph was employed in the dry cleaning business for many years. Joseph loved to fish and play golf. While living in Miami, Joseph was blessed with great friends in Bob & Marie Giordano and Barbara Williams. Joseph was preceded in death by his father, David Fullmore; his mother, Maude Pearson; his brothers: Joseph Lassiter, John Lassiter, and Marvin Lassiter; his sisters: Helen Oliver, Anna Jones, Ruth Whitaker, Addie Fullmore, and Maddie Turner. He leaves to mourn his passing his loving, devoted daughter, Wanda Fullmore of Madison; two grandchildren: Tamara Doherty of Edmond, Oklahoma, and Will B. Smith III (Leslie) of Madison; nine great-grandchildren; one sister, Mildred Lassiter of Miami, Florida; two special friends whom he adored, Georgia (Harris) Henderson and Dr. Richard Harris of Madison; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends who loved him very much. Special thanks and appreciation to Hyland Crossings Memory Care in Sun Prairie and Dr. Emily Ruiz, M.D. for their excellent care since Joseph moved back to Madison in June of 2018 and Heartland Hospice Services of Madison.

My wife Marie and I offer our deepest condolences to Wanda and all of Joe's family, whom he always spoke about with great pride, a smile and a sparkle in his eyes. It was a great pleasure having Joe living across the street in Miami and our many talks which always included a big laugh or two. He will be greatly missed along with his bright smile, warmth, and love of his family and life. Truly one of the most wonderful people we've ever met. RIP our friend.

Although I never met Joe face to face, I feel as though I knew him by the many stories that Wanda shared about him over the years. Joe was the recipient of her devotion, love and loyalty until the end. I also know that the staff at Highland will miss Joe in the months ahead as they made their place his home. RIP Joe. I salute you for your service to our country.

Joe was truly a special person and it showed so much in how his wonderful daughter Wanda was raised to be the person she is today. Their love and devotion to each other throughout their lives was wonderful. His love of family and friends was true to his heart and it carried him through life in the most wonderful way. Thank you Joe for being who you were and for leaving so many good memories with those you loved. Judy Hughes
