Robert Edward Fisher

It is with deep sorrow that the family of Bob Fisher announces his passing on Monday, December 16, 2013 in Cranbrook, British Columbia at 78 years of age.

Bob was born on July 20, 1935 in Bellevue, Alberta. He enjoyed golf, Saturday morning shift curling and baseball with the Kimberley Hobo’s. Bob was a long time Kimberley resident and worked at Cominco. He was transferred to Castlegar to continue his work with Cominco in 1985. In 1995 Bob retired from Cominco and relocated in Marysville, his home until his passing.

Bob is survived by his loving wife Bev of 56 years, his son Michael (Cheryl) Fisher, his daughter Joy (John) Elias, his grandchildren Misty (Brent) Afdahl, Ethan (Jessica) Elias, Samantha Fisher, Nicholas Fisher, his great granddaughter Tatum Afdahl, his sister Donna (Max) Hockstetter and his brother Alan (Lucy) Fisher. Bob was predeceased by his sister Marg Fisher.

The family would like to thank the staff of East Kootenay Regional Hospital for the care and compassion Bob received during his stay.

At Bob’s request, there will be no funeral service. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in his honour may do so to the charity of their choice.
