Russell Fisher

Russell Franklin Fisher, 88, of Jersey Shore passed away Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021.

Born in East End Salona on Aug. 24, 1933, he was the son of Russell I. and Flossie (Jeriles) Fisher.

Russell served in the 101st Airborne Division of the Army before returning home and marrying the love of his life, the former Patricia Weaver. He was employed at Piper Aircraft for 25 years.

Russell always felt more comfortable on a farm. He spent most of his younger years on his parents’ farm. He was blessed to spend his later years on his daughter, Judy’s, farm.

He loved splitting wood, taking care of cattle, making hay and mowing lawn. At the age of 88, he was still putting hay in the back of his Kabota.

More than anything, he loved his family. Together for 52 years, Russell and Patricia made endless memories with their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and great, great grandchildren.

Russell will be forever missed, but his memory will live forever.
