Trade Regrets: Mark Fullerton

Christian Wissmuller • Trade Regrets • August 29, 2019

We received the following on August 29:

Ted Brown Music is sad to announce the loss our long-time friend and employee.  Mark Fullerton, passed away unexpectedly and suddenly in his home on the evening of August 9th, 2019 at only 57 years old.   Mark has been in the Music Industry his whole career.  We were lucky enough to have him in our business for 27 years.

 Mark was proficient on many instruments but was an exceptional guitarist. His love and talent for the guitar allowed him to travel the world, led him to an extremely successful career and (along with his rock star hair) was instrumental in landing his wife, Tani.  Mark got his first job in the music industry at the young age of 15.  In 1992, after a successful touring career and working at a local retailer, he joined the Ted Brown Music family.  He was hired as a manager and most recently served as the Purchasing, Marketing and Sales Manager for the company’s six retail locations. Those who were lucky enough to know or work with Mark, or even just encounter him one time, will attest to his love for music and his dedication to his work in the music industry.

A man like Mark may only exist once in our lifetime. Mark was full of life. His love for life, music and his family always shone through.   He had a way about him that made everyone feel welcome and loved. He was the kind of person that made everyone feel they’d known him their whole life, even when meeting for the first time. The happy, smiling person you met is who he was.  A life-long learner, Mark was a person who wanted to help people and this drove him to gain knowledge in so many different areas.  He sincerely cared about the success of others for their benefit, not his. The hole he leaves behind in Ted Brown Music will not be filled by just one person.  The hole he leaves in our hearts will never be filled.  Mark will undoubtedly continue to live on through the impact that he has made on so many of us.

Mark is survived by his wife, Tani and three daughters, Kylee Gehring (husband Zack), Kaylor Frederick (husband Dylan) and Kianna Fullerton. Mark and Tani also have one granddaughter, Thea Rae Frederick.
