WALTER FULFORD DIES HERE AT AGE OF 84
Following reoccuring heart attacks covering a period of the past year and growing more severe, Walter Fulford, 84, died Wednesday night at his home in this city. He had been confined to his home since Monday, at which time he suffered a severe attack.
Funeral services were held from the home Thursday afternoon at 4 o'clock by Rev. Charles Williams, rector of Christ Episcopal church of which Mr. Fulford was a member, and interment in Cedar Grove cemetery followed.
For forty-three years, probably for more years than any other person in North Carolina, Mr. Fulford had served as a magistrate. He was widely-known throughout Craven and adjoining counties. A native New Bernian, the son of the late Joseph and Sarah Fulford, he had at various times during his long residence here been engaged in the hotel, insurance, drug, and railroad business. He knew New Bern's history and was interested in the city's advancement.
Failing health ended his study for the Episcopal ministry when he was a young man. He spent some time in western North Carolina in recuperating. His health again failed while he was studying law with the late Judge C. Owen Guion and Judge Manly.
Survivors include two daughters of Conway, S. C.; two sons, both of New Bern, and four grandchildren.
