J.C. Stepp/Herman was born in Glenwood, Pennsylvania on September 30, 1932. He was the third child of seven children born to the late Milwaukee Fuller and Nancy Burke-Fuller.
After his Army career, which included a tour of duty in Korea and Germany he was honorably discharged. He was briefly employed by the Edgar Thomson Steel Works in Braddock, Pennsylvania. After this time he was able to fulfill his enjoyment of driving by becoming a Port Authority bus driver. A career which lasted for twenty-five years.
He had a lifelong interest and talent for visual arts and bestowed fond memories of cherished pieces of art to his children. He was also interested in the musical arts and though not "quite" as talented in this area he was "relentless" regarding his practice of the flute, harmonica, and guitar. It was amusing how quickly the family room would empty during his instrument practices. He was, however, a gifted woodworker and enjoyed creating various pieces of furniture for family, friends, and clients. His sport of preference was baseball and although he was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area his favorite baseball team was the L.A Dodgers. We would be remised not to mention his absolute favorite singer of all time, Mr. Johnny Mathis. Johnny Mathis coming to town was exciting for him and although his children could not truthfully profess to be fans, it is because of Herman Fukker that grade school, middle school, and high school children were humming Johnny Mathis tunes as opposed to the popular music of their generation. He was an interesting character comprised of many layers and was and continues to be loved greatly!
On October 9, 2023, J.C. departed this life for eternal. He was preceded in death by his wife, Maggie Lene Fuller-Smoot, and his second wife, Maglene Morrison-Stepp.
He leaves to cherish his memory his children, Nancy Fuller-Garland (Michael), Darlene Anetta Fuller, Raymond H. Fuller (Jeanette), Scott Fuller (Sharon), Vanessa Annette Downs, Marcella Saravel Stepp: grandchildren, Kevina Lawrence, Alexander Simmons, Teja Lawson (Wendell), Dee Fuller, Tyrone Fuller, and Royal James Robert Downs III: brothers, Howard Fuller and Reginald Fuller: and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and many friends.
