August 10, 2017
Fulton DeWitt Green entered into the realm of the Heavenly Rest on August 10, 2017. He is survived by his loving wife of ten years, Bonnie, and their beloved daughter, Jane Frances Green. He is also survived by his mother, Ellen Fulton Green, and his sister, Mary Ellen (Rick) Keller. He was preceded in death by his father, Aubrey DeWitt Green.
Fulton was a lifelong learner and dedicated student. While attending Sumter Academy, Fulton took classes in calculus at Livingston University prior to entering Auburn University at age sixteen. He graduated from Auburn University with a degree in computer engineering and worked as a software developer in Huntsville, Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia. He subsequently earned his Master’s in Business Administration from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and entered a career in banking in Charlotte, North Carolina.
He loved the church of his youth, York Presbyterian Church, where his faith was nurtured by loving parents and a devoted church community. His passion for music began there, and he went on to play trumpet in the Auburn Marching Band and was a member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. He sang with the Choir of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Comforter.
Above all else, Fulton was a rock for his family. He and Bonnie met at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Philip, in Atlanta, Georgia, where they taught Sunday school together and shared a deep and abiding faith in God. He adored his daughter Janie. He was a constant support to her, encouraging her every day in many small ways and sharing with her his interests in jazz music, computer coding, and hiking.
Fulton brought joy to all those he knew, including fellow church and choir members, coworkers, and extended family. He shared his love for life with his nephews, Daniel Justice, Zachary Justice, and Drew Justice; niece, Zoe Justice; cousin, “cuz” Travis King; godson, Noah Smith; and goddaughter, Helena Childress.
A celebration of Fulton’s life will be held on Tuesday, August 15, at 4:00 p.m. at the Church of the Holy Comforter, 2701 Park Rd., Charlotte, North Carolina 28209, followed by a reception. Childcare will be available during the service. Committal will be private.
