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.

    Dear Fulton Family’s I know your hearts are breaking, to lose such a special person to soon is hard to process. Mark had an amazing spark about him. He was incredibly kind and when he laughed he had that mischievous look in his eyes and soon he had everyone laughing. I ran into him on the slopes at Mammoth about 3 years ago. We had a chance to ski together and catch up on family life. I’m so glad I had that opportunity. It was special He was special and will be grately missed. Love Tim&Anita

    Mark and I had many adventures together during our early years as reps in the Outdoor Industry. We rafted rivers together, skied, ran trails and roads, and even flew via parapente over the Alps.

    He was a mentor and an inspiration. I’m thankful that I was able to work with him, to learn from him, and to know him. I’ll miss him.

    My thoughts to his family during this time. He spoke of all of you, often. More than being a great rep and a strong presence in our field, he seemed to be most proud of being a father and husband to his family.

  3. Mark was an inspiration to so many, especially me. He and I shared many adventures, including one scary backcountry ski on Mt. Jepson, where I met many of his ‘rescue posse’ on the way out. Mark helped me in so many ways get to where I am, in such a selfless and generous way; My deepest sympathy and condolences go to Cathy and the whole family. Mark was a truly great man whose legacy will live on.

  4. I met Mark in the 1980’s when we were both in the triathlon biz and I also participated in a few of his Big Bear Triathlon Series races. He was a great guy and put on great events. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Rest in peace, Mark.

  5. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Mark Fulton
