Oscar was my 3rd Cousin.
Oscar was the Son of Eugene Bertrand Fullmer and Sarah Jane Mitchell. He married Sarah Phoebe Merrill on May 9th 1900 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They were the parents of Eleven Children. Oscar served as Deputy Sheriff for the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office and was killed in the line of duty.

Oscar was killed in an Automobile Accident while investigating a Murder. He was driving down Bingham Canyon at a high rate of speed and failed to negotiate a hair-pin curve. His vehicle plunged down a 200-foot mountain slope. Oscar and a civilian interpreter were killed in the accident.

Here is an account of his death that was written by the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office:

It was a warm summer night on August 26th, 1928; warm enough for tempers to be hot. A Bingham miner had murdered a fellow worker and gone into hiding. Deputy Sheriff Oscar Fullmer started a search for the killer. He drove to the top of Bingham Canyon to interview witnesses and had possibly gained knowledge of the whereabouts of the suspect.
Deputy Fullmer then started down the mountainside. At 0245 hours that Sunday morning, Fullmer lost control of his vehicle and the car plunged two hundred feet down the canyon, rolling four times.
Deputy Fullmer, who was a family man and talented musician, died instantly. The rough and wild mining town of Bingham had claimed yet another man who wore the badge of a Salt Lake County Deputy Sheriff.

Oscar was buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery on August 30th 1928.
