Born in Harmony on March 25, 1938 he was a son of the late Charles Emory and Cora Mae Early Fisher.
He was a farmer and was employed by Char Mar Dairy near Burkittsville for forty-eight years until his retirement and was a life long member of the Harmony Church of the Brethren, Myersvile.
He enjoyed mushroom hunting, fishing, helping with local butcherings, making kettles of apple butter for the church, attending local carnivals and the fair. He truly loved to garden, whether it be flowers, vegetables or fruit. He would often win ribbons for his oversized fruits and vegetables from the Great Frederick Fair. Once being pictured in the newspaper for an 18 1/2 pound cantaloupe.
Most importantly he loved spending time with his kids, grandkids, great-grandkids and longtime companion Ginny Hecklinger, whom he adored dearly.
Music was a passion of his. There was always a song in his heart especially from his favorite country singer George Jones. He would burst into song anytime and anywhere. He loved singing for family, friends and church members on special occasions with Ginny. They would often sing "You are My Sunshine" together.
Ginny included him in many travel adventures, including an airplane to WA and many road trips to different states. While visiting Tennessee, they fulfilled his life long dream of going to the Grand Old Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
