Celebrating the life of

William ("Jay") Dwight Fulwiler

Passed away on December 30, 2019

A MAN WHO BROUGHT LAUGHTER AND WAS LOVE BY MANY

William (

WILLIAM (“JAY”) DWIGHT FULWILER

Bill (“Jay”) passed away into the arms of Christ, December 30th, 2019, at the age of 48, following a tragic car accident.

Bill was born in Winston-Salem, NC, January 8th, 1971, and grew up in West Ashley, Charleston, S.C.  He graduated from Middleton High School and went on to graduate from the University of Georgia where he became a Georgia Bulldog fan through and through. He also worked as a manager at City Electric Supply, in Statesboro GA.

Those who knew Bill loved his sense of humor, which made everyone burst into fits of laughter, making them feel as if they were watching a live skit on SNL. His smile was infectious, as was his laughter. Bill had a work ethic from another century and was often called the “hardest worker I know.” He had boundless energy that he used to help anyone in need, which he did often. Many called him “hilarious”, “the “nicest guy I know” and “a free spirit”. Bill often loved to share stories about his college fraternity exploits, his awesome experiences living in Charleston, Atlanta, Hilton Head, Richmond Hill, GA and Aspen, and his following music groups to different venues throughout the U.S., including Widespread Panic and the Grateful Dead.

Bill is best known for his love of comedy, his compassion for other people, his love of children, his exceptional intelligence, kindness, generosity and ability to show unconditional love.  Most importantly, Bill was known as a devoted and loving son, brother, uncle, husband, and friend. He will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved him.

Bill is survived by his wife Rachael Bell, parents Howard and Jenny Fulwiler, sister and brother in-law Anne and Wey Camp, niece Savanna Camp, stepchildren Devon and Jordyn Duijndam, father-in-law Elliott Bardsley, parents-in-law Walter and Ginger Bell and his dog-son Turbo.

Please join us to celebrate Bill’s life on Monday (January 6, 2020) at 2:00 p.m., at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in West Ashley, Charleston, South Carolina.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Humane Society for Greater Savannah, 7215 Sallie Mood Dr., Savannah, GA 31406, as Bill was a huge dog lover.

Howard, Jenny, and all the family, My deepest condolences on the passing of your son. While I never met Bill, I feel like I know him after the moving service at Westminster. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Jenny and family, My deepest sympathy in the passing of your son, Jay. The obituary tribute was amazing and many have lost a great young man. A tribute to you and Howard as well on raising an outstanding person. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as well as our tears. Kenneth and Kaye Bovender Hester

I remember "Bill" so well from high school. He made it so much more tolerable with his sense of humor and his ability to make friends with anyone, no matter who they were. Truly one of the funniest and kindest people I've ever met. May his memory be a blessing

- Joe Stern, Johns Island, SC


Bill was a great friend to have when we were young and I was fortunate enough to have reconnected with him recently as adults. We attended a comedy show in Charleston, which gave me the opportunity to catch up on lost time and to meet you, Rachel. He has always been a good man with a great sense of humor, a kind and generous heart forever thinking of others. He knew how to make you feel good about yourself when you might be low and made the high times even better. He will always be missed and never be forgotten.

- Brian Condon, Charleston, SC
