Timothy Joseph (Timmy) Fullin of Edgartown died Sept. 20 at his home following a two-year battle with lung cancer. He was 65.

Tim was born May 13, 1949 in Oak Bluffs to the late Remo L. and Alice E. Fullin of Vineyard Haven. He graduated from Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School in 1968. He served in the U.S. Army from April 21, 1969 to Jan. 21, 1971 in Viet Nam.

He was in the heating business his whole life. For a time he worked for his uncle, Augustus B. Campos, who owned ABC Oil Company, which Tim eventually bought and ran. He then started Fullin Heating with his son Keith, along with help from his son TR.

He was an avid golfer, spending many afternoons at his beloved Mink Meadows where he owns the 1996 and 1998 club championship. Tim enjoyed darts, fishing and spending time with friends at the PA Club. He was also a life member of the VFW.

Tim loved to tell jokes and make people laugh. His quick-witted teasing meant he cared about you. His spirit will live forever in the hearts of those who knew him.

He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Linda Fullin; his daughter Veronica; his son TR; his son Keith and his wife Whitney; and six grandchildren: Devin, Eva, Colby, Emery, Bo and Camden, whom he loved dearly. He is also survived by three brothers: Philip and wife Carol; Remo and wife Patricia; and Nicky and wife Jackie, along with many nieces and nephews.

A graveside burial will be held Monday, Oct. 6, at 11 a.m. at the New Westside Cemetery in Edgartown. Following the burial, please join his family and friends in celebrating his life at a potluck gathering at the PA Club in Oak Bluffs.
