Charles ‘Mike’ Fullerton, UH-Hilo dean
HILO, Hawaii — Charles “Mike” Fullerton, university dean, leading scientific researcher and community leader, died last week at his Puna home in Kurtistown, Hawaii. He was 67.
“He gave a lot back to our community,” said retired school Principal Donna Saiki, who sang with him in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church’s Aloha Choir. Fullerton was chairman of the church’s pastoral council.
Helen Hemmes, chief professional officer of the Hawaii Island United Way, remembered Fullerton as the volunteer leader who engineered the island’s first $1 million campaign in 1998-90.
Others simply recalled him as “the congenial dean” who regularly tried to advance community-university relations.
Fullerton, an Oklahoma City native, came here in 1971 to serve as head of the former Cloud Physics Laboratory at the University of Hawaii-Hilo, where he served for two decades before becoming acting provost and later dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at UHH in 1984.
Faculty member Suk Hwang recounted Fullerton’s role in creating a highly successful summer camp for promising high school science and mathematics students.
“He served us all — students, faculty and family — so well. He was a congenial guy and such a dedicated parent. He was always there for his children,” Hwang said.
Fullerton’s oldest daughter, Malia, teaches at Pennsylvania State University. His daughter Amy teaches at Kohala High School.
He also is survived by his wife, Jane, and son Christopher.
Funeral was pending yesterday at St. Joseph’s Church in Hilo.
