Carson FultzBentonville, AR, 1943 - 2018
Carson Fultz was a wonderful man, and his legacy for kindness will always be cherished by family and friends. Carson was born Sept. 24, 1943, and died on Dec. 25, 2018, in Springdale, Ark. Born in Carroll County, Ark., Carson's early love for the outdoors continued strong throughout his entire life. His parents moved their family of eight children to Greenfield, Calif., in 1956, where he later met Rachel, the love of his life. They married in 1962 and raised five children who learned from their father to always keep their word and always lend a hand to those in need.
Carson was a life-long Sabbath keeper and an ordained deacon and elder. He loved to study scriptures to gain understanding and wisdom. At the end of his life, he was a member of Church of God, A Worldwide Association. He was a truck driver by trade but mostly loved to spend his time gardening, bee keeping, fishing, and working on building projects. He knew how to enjoy the results of his labor and hosted many a gathering around a bonfire for friends and family throughout his life. Carson's kids and grand-kids were his pride and joy. He spent countless hours with them telling stories from family history and exploring the outdoors. He will be loved and missed all our lives.
Carson is survived by his wife Rachel Jean Moss Fultz; his children Julie Rowland, Shelly Couston, Kenneth Fultz, Dennis Fultz and Nathan Fultz; his siblings Daniel Fultz, Mary Jernigan, Patty Cunha, Margaret Zemak and Gayle Gardner; seven grandchildren Krista Rowland, Kelsey Reed, Jennifer Couston, Jocelyn Fultz, Jessica Fultz, Jayne Fultz and Carson Fultz; four great-grandchildren Colton Reed, Kellen Reed, Evelyn Reed and Carson Johnson.
