Richard “R.T.” Fuller, 67, was born October 28,1953, in Greenville S.C., and died Sunday, August 1, 2021.
R.T. was an aviation meteorologist professionally. However, he was a professional photographer by trade for a number of years. He was also an author, publishing two books. R.T. was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. After his discharge, he and his wife, Victoria (who passed away in 2016), settled in Savannah, GA.
R.T. Fuller was a dear friend to many. Though he only had one biological child, he was a father figure to so many of his "kids", and he had a lot of them. He was the individual you could call when you thought no one else would listen. He helped several of his "kids" get through school with degrees and through life when they had ups and downs. He believed in community and helping one another out. R.T. believed in living one's life to the fullest. To him it wasn't the destination but the journey. He would tell you to slow down and take time to look around and enjoy the beauty in life. The world has lost a great man who will be dearly missed by all his family, friends, and “kids”.
In honor of such a great man, there will be a Celebration of Life, at the family home at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, August 14, 2021.
In lieu of flowers, please consider remembrances to the USO, 340 Eisenhower Dr., Savannah, GA, 31406 or the Nancy & J.C. Lewis Cancer and Research Pavilion, 225 Candler Dr., Savannah, GA, 31405. These organizations were there for the family in time of need.

Please accept our condolences and prayers. Barbara and Mason Stewart

"RT" will be missed by his many friends and co-workers. RT was my first supervisor after joining the AF. A fair and giving man, always willing to lend a hand --and fun to work "with"! RT was the guy that if you hadn't seen him in decades he'd greet like he'd just seen you yesterday. He had an enduring love and fascination with anything weather and "weather" provided him a living for well over 40 years. RT's friends and his beloved Savannah have lost a good man. Soar with the eagles RT!

I walked in Hunter weather station in 1981. RT was chief observer, Tori was on the counter. The real McCoy! Always had a good story! Can't believe they're both gone. They're missed by many So sorry for your loss
