Wade was born on November 9, 1968 to Brother Coy and Betty Sue Bright Fulgham. He was a graduate of Ackerman High School. He was a loving husband, father, brother, and friend. With his winning smile and great sense of humor, he made everyone feel valued. He always knew exactly what to say to each person. His children say he was the life of the party. Wade’s desire each day was to bring a smile to everyone’s face. He said if he could make one person smile a day then he had done his job. Being an MSU and Dallas Cowboys fan he enjoyed watching them and having his constant companion, Sassy (his dog), by his side. He was an avid fisher and hunter. He was saved and baptized at the age of fifteen with the influence of his dad and Brother Wyatt Harvey at Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church in Choctaw County and he attended Poplar Flat Baptist Church in Louisville, Mississippi.
