In memory of
William "Bill" C. Fulcher
William C. Fulcher, 77, of Sutherland, passed away September 8, 2019 at the Sutherland Care Center in Sutherland, Nebraska. He was born December 17, 1941, in Dalton, Nebraska, to Henry and Wilma (Means) Fulcher. His parents and their families lived near Broadwater, Nebraska. Bill and his sister, Signa attended elementary and secondary public schools at Broadwater. He enjoyed Scouting, DeMolay, church activities, hunting and fishing. Their grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins were very important in their lives. Bill and Signa enjoyed many memorable family gatherings. Signa married Bill Nott and they lived in Castro Valley, California. Bill attended Chadron State College, earning a BS in Education with an endorsement in teaching science in 1963. He completed his master’s degree with an endorsement in Guidance and Counseling in 1968. Bill was involved in many groups, fraternities and activities while in college. His first teaching position in 1963 was at Valley, Nebraska, where he taught biology, physics, chemistry and general science for three years. Bill began teaching in Sutherland, Nebraska, in the fall of 1966 as the high school science teacher. He stayed in the home of Mildred Jones for 14 years and she became a second mother to him. After her death in 1979, Bill moved to the guest house of Marvin and Betty Beatty where he lived for 28 years as part of the Beatty family. The years that Bill spent teaching in Sutherland were very rewarding and he grew to love and respect the people in this area. Bill enjoyed many personal friendships and treasured memories of the many students and faculty with whom he worked. College visits, attending Cornhusker games, organizing high school ski trips, assisting with proms, dances, youth fellowship, senior sneak trips and graduations, helping students search for scholarships, and attending brandings in the area were very important to him.

Bill retired from Sutherland Public Schools in 2004 but continued to be a substitute teacher and volunteered at church, senior center and the hospital board.
