Born in Nashville, TN, Fulcher's family moved about quite a bit. They resided in Yakima, WA, for some length of time before World War II. After he graduated from high school, Fulcher worked for the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).

Following the war, he lived with his family in North Seattle for the rest of his life.


He wed Dorothy Knudson on 11/25/1944.


He and Dorothy had four children: Lora Roy, Sharon Holt, Anne Haug and Seth Kelly Fulcher, Jr. According to a humorous note in his obituary: "After retirement, Seth volunteered and taught watercolor classes for 20 years at the Greenwood Senior Center, traveled the world with Dorothy, gardened, painted, tried his hand at fiction and op-ed, and sought to micromanage his adult children's and grandchildren's lives." (See Seattle, "Seth McCallen Fulcher, Sr.," accessed 12/26/2017.)
