David Neil Fisher, age 80, of Evanston, passed away Tuesday, June 30, at his home surrounded by his loving family.
He was born Sept. 14, 1939, in Heber City, Utah, the son of Beatrice B. Goodfellow Fisher.
David served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam era. He married Inge Meter on Nov. 11, 1961, in Bitburg, Germany, and raised three children during their 59 years of marriage.
David was an industrial safety teacher throughout his service in the Air Force and further pursued his passion for teaching at the BOCES education center here in Evanston. An avid traveler, he enjoyed fishing, boating and camping throughout the country. In his final years, his favorite place to get away from Wyoming winters was Needles, California. He developed a passion for cooking and researched new recipes to try — his favorite recipes were printed and cataloged in his personal binder.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Good Sam’s Club and Veterans of Foreign Wars.
David is survived by his loving wife, Inge; daughter, Patricia Jumonville; sons, David Fisher Jr. and Michael Fisher; three grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his siblings, Judy Butt, Donald Fisher, Pete Bass, Bruce Bass and Cathleen Bass Futrell.
A private viewing and funeral will be held.
