It is with deep sadness that the family of Chicken Nugget Fucillo, of San Luis Obispo, announces her passing after a sudden and tragic snatching by an unidentified wild canine, on Friday, June 16, 2017 at 10:36am. Chicken, or as her friends called her, “Nugget,” will be lovingly remembered by her adopted family, as well as her dear step-sisters, Chicken Sando and Chicken Death Destroyer.
A native of Santa Cruz, Nugget grew-up in the mountains. The offspring of a broken home, she was raised by her working mother and never knew her absentee father. Just three months ago, she set-off with her step-sisters to pursue their lifelong dream of moving to the Central Coast. All three sisters prefer to go by their middle names— Nugget based on her beautiful McGolden coloring. Her successful career as an entomologist earned her deep admiration by numerous experts in the field. In her spare time, Nugget enjoyed rolling in the dust under the deck, eating lizards, mothering, and taking relaxing bubble baths. She was a great lover of meal worms, and known for her sweet disposition and knack for taming human children. As her brother Jacob reflected, “She was too nice if you ask me. And a leisurely runner.”
Nugget served on the boards of numerous organizations including Indian Knob’s Early Risers, the SLO Chapter of Poultry Entomologists, and chaired the Neighborhood Watch for two and a half months.
A celebration of Chicken Nugget’s life will be held at 7 pm on Sunday, June 18, at the Squire Canyon Coop with the good Reverend James officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to BRUNCH: Buk-buks Rallying United AgaiNst Chicken Homicide.
