Henry D. Fuller

FALMOUTH — Henry Dean Fuller, 84, formerly of Denmark and a resident of OceanView at Falmouth, peacefully succumbed to myelodysplasia on June 27, 2012.

After graduating from Hanover, N.H., high school, he proudly served with the U.S. Navy on a destroyer in the Pacific.

Following his discharge, he attended the University of Vermont, where he met his wife of 60 years, Sonia “Sunny” Follett. They married after graduation and settled in South Portland, where they raised their three children and he worked as a construction project manager for 25 years.

In 1969, he purchased the first chalet constructed at Sunday River Skiway (built entirely with hand tools before power lines were installed on the mountain). He and Sunny were longtime active members of the Sunday River Ski Club. Family and friends continue to enjoy the chalet, a lasting legacy.

He thoroughly enjoyed retirement on Moose Pond in Denmark, where he shared his love of fishing and boating with grandchildren and young neighbors to whom he was “Mr. Hank.” Winters were spent in Sebring, Fla., where he was a committed volunteer at Florida Hospital Heartland.

He was a completely devoted family man. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son, Lincoln Fuller of Cousins Island; daughters Rennie Donovan of Cape Elizabeth and Long Island, and Holly Sperring of Wilmington, N.C.; and seven beloved grandchildren.
