Tommy served in the National Guard and was the owner-operator of Tommy’s Backhoe Service. He was very strong in his faith and was a member of St. Stephen Cathedral.

Along with his parents, he was also preceded in death by a brother, Raymond Fulkerson; and a sister, Mary C. Stallings.

Tommy is survived by a son, Danny Fulkerson; his daughter, Kelly (Josh) Leibfreid; grandchildren, Bradley Fulkerson, Meagan Leibfreid, Mitchell Leibfreid, and Alexander “A.J.” Leibfreid; a brother, Preston (Barbara) Fulkerson; his fiancé, Patricia Sharp; and many nieces and nephews.
