Life: Epic

Mark was a leader, an innovator, an athlete, and an intrepid adventurer. He was dedicated to his family, a loyal friend, a conscientious employee, and a wonderful brother. He throve on excellence in fact, he embodied it.

Life was a treasure trove of opportunity for Mark and his boundless energy. He loved finding and creating challenges, and involving others in them. From his individual accomplishments in volleyball, skiing, running and triathlons grew a desire to create adventure and challenges for others. He created the Big Bear Triathlon Series rated Top Ten in the United States – and the ongoing 8000 Meter Challenge.

Mark drew people to him, and created wonderful experiences as a way to extend his reach. In his work, there was always a sense of fun. Mark’s many successes convinced him that people had great potential, and he expected people to operate at their best level and to have fun and adventure while doing so. To be around Mark was to have a warrantee against boredom and a sure ticket for an adventure.

Mark also was a man who believed in carrying his own weight. Independence, integrity, and accountability were the elements of Mark’s core. If you knew Mark, you knew you could count on his word. You knew he would bring value to any proposition – and you sure wanted him on your team.

Mark was a beacon and a catalyst, a human alchemist. Those who knew Mark had ordinary parts of their lives transmuted to extra-ordinary, exceptional and exhilarating events.

The family suggests that, in lieu of flowers, donations to help with medical costs be made through Big Bear Lake Union Bank, care of Cathy Fulton.

  1. Dear Fulton Family,
    I am shocked and so saddened by this news. Mostly for the loss but also that I did not find out until recently. I am also sad that I had lost contact over the years and, while I knew he had a successful career, I did not know about his family. I feel so bad for you.
    I was the Fisher sales representative who hired Mark as the Big Bear area Rep. in 1976 on the recommendation of Wally XXXX, the ski school director at Snow Summit at the time. Mark put together a first rate team of skier/atheletes to represent Fischer, including Kent Stevens, and they were so helpful in getting the brand established in the Southern California market both on the hill and assisting me at many promotional events. Mark and Damian also were our first male fashion models this may be unknown for the NILS skiwear brand. To me, he was always a first rate individual, professional, full of life and always fun to be around. It seems that all of the other comments indicate that my positive impression was universal. My condolences to you all.
