David Ray Fisher went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, June 13th, 2009, at about 10:50 p.m. at his home in Montague. David was just shy of his 54th birthday, and had been battling brain cancer for eight months after successfully overcoming prostate cancer.
After his service in the U.S. Army, Dave worked as a logger, welder, and millwright, before finally working for himself in the construction trades.
He will forever be missed by his wife, Deborah, of 35 years, his children; Dave and Kelly, Allen, Adam, Beth and Matt, Daniel, and Zachary. He was also the proud grandpa of six; Matt, Emma, Hailey, Adam, Hunter, and Hannah, all of whom will deeply miss their Grandpa. Dave is survived by numerous brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and innumerable friends who were always treated and thought of as family.
He was an avid outdoorsman and family man. He loved to hunt and fish, and the time spent with family and friends doing both. Dave made friends and shared the Word and love of God with everyone he met, and left a memorable impression on all.
His memorial service will be held at the Grenada Berean Church, 512 6th St., Grenada Ca., on Saturday, June 27th, at Noon. All who knew him are invited to attend. Girdner Funeral Chapel is assisting the family.
David's wife Debbie played softball with Robin for my wife's LP Treetopper team. David was always at the games with their adopted and foster children. Debbie was not supposed to be able to have kids, then surprise! They had two of their own. Dave and Debbie always kept a positive attitude throughout David's life, and I have nothing but positive memories of David and their kids. He was way to young to go.
