WEST ORANGE, NJ — Members of the West Orange Board of Education (WOBOE) this week acknowledged the passing of former WOBOE member Warren Fuller, who died on Monday.
According to the board, Fuller served the community from 1996-2004 with great distinction. He was a Certified Board Leader, receiving the highest accommodation from New Jersey School Boards Association, and provided instruction to board members across the state.
Fuller also served as president of the board during his term and shared his love and passion for public education long after his tenure on the board.
"Warren's ability to grasp often complex and complicated issues and assist not only those with whom had the privilege of serving with him but for many board members subsequently; was profoundly appreciated by members of the entire school community,” said WOBOE member Laura Lab, a long time friend. “Many years after his children graduated and he no longer was a member of the board, Warren tried not to miss a football game, marching band half time show, concert or high school play. He was a true advocate for West Orange, our children and our school district. My colleagues and Superintendent Rutzky, join me in sending heartfelt condolences to his family and friends."
A memorial gathering will be held on Friday, Aug. 4 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Danglers Funeral Home, located at 340 Main Street in West Orange (danglerfuneralhome.com).
