Hon. T. A. Fuller
T. A. FULLER, SAN ANTONIO. Hon. T. A. Fuller died, after a brief illness of malarial fever, at his home, 806 Camden street, San Antonio, at 8:30 p. m., Sunday, April 27, 1902. Funeral services were held at the residence at 5:30 p. m. the following day, Rev. A. J. Harris, of the First Baptist Church, officiating. The remains were then taken to Paris, Texas, his old home, for interment in the family burying ground. Three sisters survive him.
He was born in Bonham, Texas, in 1860, the son of B. F. and Mrs. Florinda (Gordon) Fuller,1 both now deceased; received a common school education; graduated from the State Agricultural and Mechanical College, near Bryan; studied law and was admitted to the bar; rose rapidly to prominence in his profession; served one term in the Legislature; was Assistant Attorney-General under. Attorney-General Crane from 1897 to 1899, and was spoken of for the Democratic nomination for Attorney-General in 1902, but declined to make the race. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias fraternity.
Mr. Fuller was a man of marked purity of character,
learned and skilled in his profession, respected by all, and beloved by a
wide circle of friends. Had he lived, there is scarcely any professional
or political honor in the State that he might not have attained. The world
and its fevered dream of life, its delusions of wealth, its fleeting
distinctions of place and power and its laurels that wither almost as soon
as they are woven around the brows they are intended to adorn are now as
nothing to him. The only reality, the only permanence, seems to be
comprehended in that larger portion of the circle of existence that is
hidden from the view of the denizens of earth, and to which his noble
spirit has been introduced. It is pleasing to reflect that his natural
endowments and virtuous principles and actions give certainty to the hope
that all is well with him; that while we are deprived of the pleasure of
his society, our loss has been his gain.
