Milton – Dan D. Fullington, 75, died peacefully on Saturday, August 19, 2017, at Birchwood Terrace Healthcare in Burlington surrounded by his loving family.
Dan was born on October 21, 1941, in Omaha, Nebraska, the son of Chester and Arlene (Webb) Fullington.
At a young age, his family moved to Tucson, AZ, where he spent his childhood. He graduated from Catalina High School in 1959 and attended one year of college at the University of Arizona. Dan then enlisted in the Air Force, where he spent 20 years in Aviation Maintenance as an Electronics Technician. While enlisted in the service, he married Janice (Barcomb) Parsons on August 25, 1973, in Dannemora, NY. After retiring from the Air Force in 1980, he worked for 10 years for Genigraphics, a division of GE. In 1990, he began working for the National Weather Service, where he retired in 2008. Dan and Janice traveled the country for the next five years, prior to his being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
Dan loved bowling and bowled a perfect 300 game just a few years ago, in 2014. He was also an avid reader and often watched programs on his favorite subjects of geology and astronomy. Dan was an animal lover and especially enjoyed the companionship of dogs.
He is survived by his wife Janice Fullington of Milton, their children Stacey Parsons of Nashua, NH, Britt Parsons and his partner Deb Foster of Denver, CO, and Tavis Fullington of SC. He is also survived by his sister Nancy Thompson of MS.
