It is with great sadness that we announce that Brian Fisher passed away peacefully at the West Parry Sound Health Centre on Friday, July 29, 2016.
Son of Marj and Jack, whose war service on Lancaster Bombers was a source of pride and fascination for Brian. Loved and loving husband, and profoundly missed by wife Jo (Margaret). Cherished father of Todd (Sharon) of Bonnyville, AB and Wade (Carrie) of Quincy, IL, and proud grandfather of Hayden. Brother of Karen (Malcolm). Brother-in-law of Barb (Bill) Davis, Nancy (Bob) Attfield, and Susan Hill. Son-in-law of Betty Hill. Missed by his canine companions Cookie and Ailin.
Brian grew up in Ottawa, graduating from EOIT in Engineering. He took his mechanical and chemical skills and compelling work ethic to companies in Milton, Hamilton, Ohio, South Carolina, Mexico, Belgium, and Indiana. He and Jo made wonderful friends wherever they lived. Brian retired to his and Jo's beautiful and unique home on Georgian Bay in Carling Township, where he expanded his repertoire as an avid NASCAR fan, a passionate and dedicated aircraft modeler and flyer, gardener, curler, dinner host, sometime enthusiastic chef, and fulltime appreciator of his wife's quilting. Brian was a resourceful and helpful friend and neighbour. His section of Carling will be much less festive. His many 'Spoonerisms' will be missed by family and friends.
Thanks from the family to the Carling Fire Department volunteers, EMS attendants, and the sensitive, caring and professional doctors and nurses at WPSHC. Brian looked forward right to the end. At his request there will be no service. Cremation has taken place.
As expressions of condolence, donations may be made to West Parry Sound Health Centre, Carling Fire Department, or Pet Trust at the Ontario Veterinary College.
