Obituary of Thomas James Fulton, Jr.
Thomas James Fulton, Jr. died unexpectedly on February 27th, 2019 at his home in Brookfield, CT
T.J. was born on June 9th, 1959 in Brooklyn, NY to Thomas James Fulton (deceased), and Beverly J. Fulton (nee Kessler), of Columbus, OH. He is survived by his siblings, Rian and her husband Neil Fitzpatrick, and Corrie Fulton, all of Columbus, OH. and Michael (Michele McVickers) Mackay of Coatesville, PA. He is also survived by his son, Thomas James Fulton, III. T.J. was pre-deceased by his beloved sister Cameron Fulton. He will be dearly missed by his niece Megan (Matt) Straley and nephews Kyle (Kelli) from the Fitzpatrick family and Andy (Amanda), Johnny, Matthew, James and Kevin from the Mackay family, and his Calovich family step-children Nick (Ai), Charlie, and Marcy (Ryan) Harbour.
T.J. spent part of his childhood in Princeton, NJ before his family relocated to Pleasantville, NY where he graduated from Pleasantville High School in 1977. He attended Guilford College, in North Carolina before returning to Pleasantville as an employee of John Meyer Consulting. This very positive first experience with full-time gainful employment was likely what led T.J. to a lifelong dedication to his work. He was a devoted employee. T.J. knew the construction business inside out and he was respected among his many colleagues throughout New York State and Connecticut. T.J. enjoyed his work immensely and took much pride in it over the years.
T.J. was fortunate to have so many good and true friends who valued his strengths and sought his company. He loved movies, both old and new, and would happily watch a marathon of those over a weekend. T.J. loved to talk about history and politics, and he was always willing to dive into a healthy debate. Coincidentally, he wore the fact that he never voted like a badge of honor. T.J. will be remembered by his family and dear friends as an intelligent, generous, hard-working and caring soul.
Funeral Services and Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family. There are no calling hours.
