Floyd Charles LeRoy Fuller of Freeland and Kona, Hawaii passed away peacefully in his sleep in the comfort of his own home on Whidbey Island on June 8, 2018. He is survived by his three daughters Julia Atwood (Ray), Michelle Bosman and Andrea Sundberg; eight grandchildren: Tyler Porter, Travis Porter, Tanner Porter, Keeley Bosman, Keegan Bosman, Vance Frenzel, Garrett and Aaron Atwood; and one great-grandchild, Skye Porter. He was preceded in death by his mother Dolores Fuller-Rott and two sisters, Peggy and Pat. Floyd was born in Buffalo New York in 1941. After an honorable discharge from the Air Force in 1964, he remained in Washington to build a business, family and friendships, he and made Washington his primary home. Floyd began his career with Firestone Tires and was a successful owner and co-owner of several Les Schwab Tire Stores. He was a sharp business man and proud of his accomplishments and was able to retire in his 40s.

His first grandchildren referred to him as “Grandpa Elk,” then the next grandchildren referred to him as “Grandpa on the Island” and his last two grandsons referred to him as “Grandpa at the Beach.” All these names tell a story of his life — hunting, traveling, fishing and enjoying life! He spent his retirement years exploring other countries and cultures and loved to travel. He spent many years in Kona, which he watched evolve from a small laid back remote island to an island full of tourism. He enjoyed fishing and hunting all over the U.S. and in other countries. He was a true outdoorsman and his children and grandchildren enjoyed hearing stories of his travels, exotic hunts and experiences. In remembrance we invite you to find a spot with a water or beach view and enjoy a glass of red wine – he would have loved that!
