Melvin Eugene Fulbright

September 26, 1943 — December 12, 2022

Melvin Eugene Fulbright, 79 of Statesville, NC, passed away on December 12, 2022. Melvin was born in Iredell County in 1943 to the late Euphia and Noel Fulbright. He was one of 14 siblings, 7 boys and 7 girls. He was predeceased by 11 siblings, his wife of 41 years Mary Lois, and his son Chip.

He is survived by two sisters, Hilda Sue Fulbright, Margaret Lackey, his stepson Jeff Mecimore (Vickie), Randall Thompson (Patricia), six grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Melvin loved family get togethers, drag racing and old cars. He also loved using his pullback grill, since 1993, to cook BBQ chicken for the benefit of the underprivileged.

Special thanks to his daughter-in-law Patricia who took care of Melvin 24/7 since October, and she should be blessed for that.

The family will receive friends from 10-11 AM Friday December 16, 2022. Funeral Services will be held 11 AM at Eufola Baptist Church with Pastor Jake Potter officiating.
