John "Jack" Brockman Fisher
April 10, 1927 - April 16, 2013
He will be greatly missed by all
Born April 10 1927 in Ames, IA and passed away suddenly on April 16 2013 in Edmonds, WA preceded in death by his wife, Doris.
Adopted soon after being born by Joseph Fisher and Mildred Brockman Fisher. He spent his youth on a watermelon farm before marrying Luree Ann Rife in 1945. Inducted into Army in 1945 before being sent to Europe with the 88th Infantry Div. also known as "The Blue Devils", where he earned the Victory Medal and the Occupation Medal of Germany. He returned to the U.S. in 1946 and was honorably discharged in 1947.
He and his wife raised two children, Greg and Kathy, before divorcing in 1957. Later that year he married Doris L. Thomas. Their family, including Alex and Dennis Senecaut, sons from Doris’ prior marriage, was moved to Seattle in 1962 by Boeing. He later moved to the J.D. Ott Manufacturing Co. in 1964 where he worked as a machinist until 1979. Later that year he transferred to Certified Aerospace, Inc. in Shelton from which he later retired in 1989. He moved on to taking care of the water towers at Paradise Shores Estates on Mason Lake, WA before retiring in 2010.
He and Doris returned to Burien in 2011 where she passed away. In 2012 he moved to Kenmore, WA with his daughter after her marriage and was settling into a new life when he died in a car accident. He is survived by his daughter Lynette (John) Charles and his two step-sons Alex Senecaut of WA, Dennis (Linda) Senecaut and daughter Kathy (Bill) Roth of Iowa, and son Douglas (Verna) Fisher of CA, and many grandchildren.
He loved to bowl and square dance with his wife throughout the years, but his passion was his “cabin”/retirement home which he mostly built himself. He loved the great northwest with the fishing for salmon (and smoking it himself), pheasant and deer hunting. Time with family and friends was important during his time on this earth and we will all miss him dearly. He was a 50 year member of the Masonic Lodge in Windsor Heights, Iowa. He will be greatly missed by all.
We'll always remember
That special smile
That caring heart
That warm embrace
You always gave us.
You being there.
For mom and us.
Through good times and bad times
No matter what.
We'll always remember
You, Dad, because
There'll never be anyone
To replace you in our hearts.
And the love we will always have for you.
Love Lives On
Those we love remain with us,
for Love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade;
because one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there's a memory
they live on in our heart.
Think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost,
and he was loved so much.
