Kane was the definition of a true friend... we always traded pictures and told stories of our grandchildren. To me, he was more like a brother than a co-worker. My deepest sympathy to the family, and I will be praying for you guys.
I will miss talking with Kane in the evenings here on the Blackhornet. He loved talking kids, politics and sports. The pain of his passing is felt by all and he affected all of us in a positive way. Thoughts and prayers are with you Ann and your family.
Kane was the proudest husband, parent and grandparent you could imagine. We’d talk often of his growing family, he’d be smiling ear to ear the whole time. This world will not forget you Kane Fulfer, you have blessed too many lives with your kindness. I will surely miss you sir, Rest In Peace brother.
Justin so sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and your family.
