From Paul Fulton’s obituary, we did not learn much other than he was in the Army.  What I do know of Paul Fulton from speaking to some of his ex-wrestlers and football players is that they thought highly of him. 

Paul Fulton’s brother, Cornelius "Neil" Fulton, was a pilot in the Pacific Theater during World War II and was best friends of Carl Padovano

Paul Fulton founded the Hackensack High School wrestling team and coached Joe DeFalco, who became Hackensack High School’s first district champion. 

Paul Fulton also coached Reggie Williams, Tony Karcich, and Stan Sabestian, who all took second place in the State wrestling tournament in 1964.  All of these men who Paul Fulton coached went on to become extraordinary coaches, educators, and leaders throughout their lives.
