27 May 2020
Max Fuller (63) died peacefully from cancer at his home in Payson, UT surrounded by family and loved ones. He is survived by his mother, Kathrene Mendenhall Fuller of Salem, UT, son, Jeramia Fuller (Michelle Fuller) of Heber, UT. Two grandchildren ( Temperence and Westley), and brother, Scott Fuller of Salem and Lynda Baker Fuller of Payson. He is preceded in death by his father, Jerry Fuller.

Ellis Max Fuller was born in Provo Utah to Jerry and Kathrene Fuller. Max was named after his grandfathers, Ellis (Pat) Fuller and Max Mendenhall both of Spanish Fork. For all of their lives, Max had a very special bond with his grandparents.

Raised and educated in Salem Utah, Max learned the importance of work at the family mink farm and other endeavors his family was involved in. His youth was spent alongside his brother Scott and their family as they enjoyed their family cabin site in the nearby mountains. This link to the mountain canyons remained strong throughout his life and his presence there with family and friends will remain an important part of his legacy.

As a young man Max labored alongside his family at their cabin site on Loafer Mountain. As an adult he continued his efforts for the betterment of the cluster of cabins by serving on the Board of Directors for most of his adult life. He often said that his spiritually came from the mountain, not from a church.

Shortly after graduating from High School in Spanish Fork, Max went to work at Kaman Bearing in Orem. He remained there for 43 years. A testament to his incredible work ethic. Many individuals in the county encountered Max in his capacity at Kaman Bearings and established friendships that have lasted through the years.

He married Lynda Baker in 1980, The couple had a son, Jeramia. Although they were later divorced, the pairs lives became once again intertwined in Max’s final years. They were planning to be remarried when illness struck him down. During his lingering illness Lynda was his constant companion and love.

Several years after his divorce from Lynda, he married Kathy Herbert. The couple had no children, but Max helped raise a family of girls from Kathy’s earlier marriage. Max and Kathy have remained friends through the years.

The outdoors played a large part of his life. When the work day was finished he could be found on Strawberry Reservoir with his family or on extended vacations in Mexico fishing for giant Marlin. Winter months meant snowmobiles and winter camping. He was a skilled outdoorsman.

All that knew and loved Max mourn the passing of this kind and generous man who left this world a better place with his presence.

Following his wishes Max was cremated and no services will be held.

Rest well, Uncle Max. It's difficult to express how significant a part of my early life you were -- from countless trips up Loafer, to deer hunting, camping, fishing, and snowmobiling. You were the overseer of many sleepovers, an occasional substitute tooth fairy, a reliable hook-baiter, and introduced me to my abiding love for pizza rolls! I still own many of the birthday gifts you gave me over the years, ranging from music to flashlights. You were someone to look up to, with a strong work ethic, a sense of humor, and a quiet wisdom. Thank you for being a fantastic uncle. I hope your reunion with Grandpa Pat and Grandpa Jerry is sweet. I'll miss you until we meet again, Uncle Stan!

I first met Max when he was 10 years old, and I was dating his cousin and my future husband, Steve. Since that time, Max and his brother, Scott, has always treated with the utmost love and respect. Max was always helpful and had a funny sense of humor that always made me laugh. He was thoughtful and would always go the extra mile. He knew that I liked shrimp, and when I would come to his house for BUNCO, he would make sure he had shrimp for Jude. Our love and condolences go out to the Fuller family. We will miss Max.

Dear Max Fuller Family,
The Fuller family From Grandfather and Father( Pat) down Through Max, has always been one of the Don & Jane Ann Cole's family favorite friend. Also, he has been a friend of all the Loafer Cabin Owner's Group. He will be greatly missed, especially during the Deer Hunting Season. He accomplished much and provided a lot of help and service to the Loafer Recreation Association. The Fuller Family should be proud of the service Max provided.
Thank you and may God bless all of you.
