It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of Stephen “Steve” Linton Fuller. Born May 23, 1968 in Columbus, Ohio, Steve died in Seattle on March 25, 2022. He is survived by his daughters, Anna and Sophia, and their mother Katharine, his brother Michael, and his family, as well as his parents David and MaryAnn.
Steve graduated from Medina High School in 1986 before participating in Rotary’s student exchange program from 1986 to 1987, where he lived in Sweden for a year. He then attended the University of Miami in Oxford, Ohio, Class of 1991, and earned a Bachelor of Arts in International/Global Studies. He was a 4-year member of the Miami University Glee Club.
After the undergraduate, he worked with AEISEC and participated in an international internship in St. Julians, Malta from ’91 to ’93. He continued to travel and even lived in Costa Rica for a few years with his then wife, Katharine. His eldest daughter, Anna, was born in July 1998 while they were living in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Shortly after his birth, Steve enrolled in an MFA program at Savannah College of Art and Design, graduating in 2000. He and his family moved to Seattle in May 2000 and Sophia was born in 2003. Steve joined the Rotary Club of West Seattle and was president of Rotary International from 2006 to 2010. He is proud to have become the 4th generation president of the Rotary club in 2010. In December 2011, he led a group in Nepal, as a team leader for the Rotary Group Study Exchange.
Steve has traveled to 40 different countries and lived in at least 6 different states, gathering friends along the way. He was an accomplished artist and a collector of art and antiques. Steve loved being in nature, cooking and entertaining, camping and boating on Puget Sound. There’s a Steve-shaped hole in our hearts that can’t be filled. He will be deeply missed. A memorial service is scheduled for the end of May. Details will be provided on howden-kennedy.com/obituary/Stephen-Fuller.
