Carl Douglas Fulp, Sr. - February 21, 1942 to December 2, 2017

Carl, (better known as Doug to family and close friends), was born in Forsyth County to Helen Collins Fulp and Carl Avery Fulp. He grew up farming along side his dad and graduated from Walkertown High School, Class of 1960. He then attended and graduated from NC State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering. His main employment was as an engineer with NC State University where he developed and implemented several notable projects, his last being the infrastructure for Centennial Campus. He retired from the university after 30 years of faithful service. After a brief retirement, he worked for another 10 years at Raleigh Durham Airport until Parkinson's disease unfortunately forced his retirement. He loved and truly enjoyed planning, designing, and maintaining system infrastructures and was always a loyal Wolfpack fan.

He married his high school sweetheart Judy Keicher Fulp and they enjoyed 56 years of a wonderful life. The marriage brought two sons into their life. Carl Douglas Fulp, Jr. was born in 1963 and Dr Errin Wesley Fulp was born in 1968. Surviving family members include his wife, both sons, his wonderfully devoted daughter in-law Soni Fulp, grandchildren Melissa Whiteheart, Jacob Avery Fulp, Martin Douglas Fulp, and Ehren Elias Fulp; two great grandchildren, Noah Stutts and Finley Whiteheart , his sister, Glenda and brother In law, Dr. Bill Folds, many nieces and nephews, one remaining aunt, Bettie Adams, and many wonderful cousins. All of whom he loved dearly.

He will remain in the hearts of so many because of his kindness, wonderful morals and strong character. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (
