Obituary of Gene Robert FULKE
Gene passed away peacefully with his loved ones by his side at the age of 66 on May 8th, 2022 in Modesto, California after a battle with lung cancer. Gene was born at the Castle Air Force Base in Atwater, California on October 3rd, 1955 to Rosemarie and Gordon Lewis Fulke. Gene’s father Gordon was in the United States Air Force so his childhood was spent in a variety of states. Gene graduated from Atwater High School in 1973, later moved to Modesto in 1983 and was employed at Mike's Scenic Towing since that time. Gene was passionate about music and a huge fan of The Beatles. Many hours were spent with his headphones on enjoying his favorite tunes and was a self-taught guitar player. Gene was a true family man. He loved his wife, children, grandchildren and his entire family. He dedicated himself to hard work, to provide and in turn others learned from his great work ethic. Gene loved the beach. He enjoyed time at the ocean and especially loved Maui. He was a walking history book who knew everything about anything and loved to learn about many different topics, often through books. He was a very smart man. Gene will be remembered for being witty, funny and constantly making everyone laugh. He was caring, loving, optimistic and always knew how to lift someone up when they were down. Gene was that man who always knew the right thing to say at the right time. The dad jokes, positivity, wisdom and his love will be greatly missed by his loved ones forever. Gene is survived by his loving wife of nearly 28 years, Debbie, their daughter Carly Je – husband Wei of Leeds, England, his son Todd Fulke – wife Kally of Modesto CA, his step-daughter Ashley Black – husband Greg of Modesto CA, his step-son Larry Rosenwinkel – wife Tesha of Oceanside, CA, beloved grandchildren Joshua, Drevin, Taylor, Daxon, Cole and Casey, his mother Rosemarie, his brother Guy and sisters Karen and Deana. Gene was preceded in death by his father Gordon. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the FULKE family.
