My dad has diabetes type 2 and is fat and has high blood pressure but takes all his medication. I worry. Can he still live a full life?

In brief: Long life possible

Your father has conditions which poses serious risks to his life but modern medicine has much to offer and he can do a lot to help himself.
Losing weight and controlling both diabetes and hypertension are at least in part within his own control.
