Jerry Fuller, a pioneer of tourism and fishing in the Park Rapids area died Saturday, Dec. 3 at age 76. "He was just a great guy, a fixture on Main street," said his brother-in-law, Royce Holland. "He liked small town life and it showed." Jerry worked with his family at Fuller's Tackle Shop in Park Rapids while also operating Fuller's Wholesale Tackle Co. and Fuller's Tackle Shop in the Paul Bunyan Mall in Bemidji. "Fuller's Tackle Shop and Fuller's Wholesale are a major part of Park Rapid's history, starting with his father," said former Park Rapids Enterprise publisher Doug Hirsch.
Martin Carter, well-loved instructor and drama coach in Park Rapids, will be remembered for his selfless commitment to others. He passed away Wednesday, Dec. 22, at age 76. Students were a priority for Carter. Each one was important and there was no such thing as a small part, in his opinion. "Martin was magic," said Joey Collins, who taught with Carter for five years in Park Rapids. "It was never about Martin. It was always about the other person." Carter was a mentor for Collins, who began student teaching in Park Rapids in 1975.
