George Fisher

February 6, 1936 ~ June 4, 2020 (age 84)


George Fisher of Brunswick Ohio and priceless rearing roots in Searights, PA completed his 84-year earthly mission on the morning of June 4th.  God welcomed a great Christian man home to heaven peacefully surrounded by family listening to opera.  He is now & forever “excellent outstanding and then some”!  There were so many waiting for him at the gate.  I know Janice Fisher his wife led the charge to see her “Froggie” along with his mother Elizabeth Marcovic, father “PAP” (Steve Fisher), brothers Joe & Steve Fisher, sister Mary Ackerman and many friends.  Best wishes of continued health and happiness to his loving big brother John Fisher.

George’s mission and journey here on earth left a trail of so many blessings.  Like a ripple on the water, he cast love, dedication, kindness, giving, and blessings everywhere. His ripple of being a dad was one of unconditional love, devotion, high standards in action and deed, and a true example of how to live each day & treat others.  His work ethic and service as a Marine was a constant example to do things right by people and process, never give up, no excuses and hard work pays off.  No one ever heard a curse word come out of George’s mouth.  He never tried a cigarette or alcohol, but he loved raspberry tea, cabbage rolls, mounds bars, tangerines, pears, and pickles. Through his passions of baseball, fishing, hunting, walking, or riding his minibike in the woods & all the family camping adventures, he provided life lessons and memories in every moment. There are many bass & deer out there sighing in relief. May his 4 children, Chris Saylor, Robin Valenti, Steve Fisher and Tanya Fisher carry his amazing legacy and love forward through their lives, actions, and memories.  George always wanted the best for them.  Knowing his children were blessed with loved ones to team with them through life to continue the ripple reassured him. He loved Debbie Saylor, Tom Valenti, Wanda Fisher, and Dalene Shepard as his own & always reminded them to take care of each other, money is not happiness and make time for things that really matter.

Being called Grandpa George, Gramps, Papa, and Paca by his 8 grandchildren & 9 great grandchildren was a badge of honor filled with quiet talks, secret handshakes, rolling coins, fishing, batting and  fielding lessons, pulling my finger, dandelion twirling, piano playing, opera music, Slavic words, dry humor, picking your friends wisely advice, lighted keychain and many hugs & kisses. George was tremendously grateful for the ripples of extended family, friends, coworkers, bosses, and teammates that came his way and enriched his life.

Though George Fisher is no longer here, his ripples will carry on forever. May we all live life so when our mission on earth is complete we can say as George truly felt…“I have no regrets, I have lived a good life and people really treated me well.” George always prioritized the health and well-being of others.  In that focus & Covid-19, an on-line video streaming visitation will be held on Friday June 12th at noon.  Burial will be held at Salem View Cemetery in New Salem, Pennsylvania at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions, in George’s name, may be made at
