Remembering Dr. Edwin Cockey Fulton

Dr. Edwin Cockey Fulton passed away early morning on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at the age of 76. He is survived by his children, Jared, Erika, Bronwyn and Jayson Fulton, 2 grandchildren, Ayden and Adelle Fulton, and his loving partner Deborah Taylor.

He was a respected orthopaedic surgeon, founder of the Bay Area Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine care center, and a decorated Vietnam War Veteran. His generous nature continues on in death, so in lieu of flowers, he would be pleased to direct donations to his flagship charity, Stars and Stripers, c/o Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, PO Box 695, La Plata, MD 20646. Checks should include “in memory of Dr. Ed Fulton.”
