Paul F. Fisher Obituary

Sgt. Paul Fisher was so good-natured that he didn''t correct co-workers who accidentally called him by the wrong name for a year. He simply answered to "Frank" until everyone figured it out. "We just always laughed about it and kept calling him Frank," said his supervisor, T.J. Korf. "He''d just always answer to Frank. He never took it bad." Fisher, 39, an Iowa National Guard member, was a flight engineer aboard the helicopter that was downed Nov. 2 while bringing soldiers home on leave. He suffered multiple injuries, which were initially considered non-life-threatening, but died Nov. 6. "He just had complications," said friend Mickey Stuefen of Cedar Rapids. "A lot of those guys got bounced around so much coming down from the helicopter. We knew it was bad _ we just didn''t know how bad." Fisher was a truck driver in the Army from 1982 to 1985 and served in the Army Reserve before joining the Guard in January 1997. He is survived by his wife of 14 years, Karen, and a stepson, Jason, 23. "We never thought that when he went overseas he was in harm''s way," Korf said, calling Fisher an excellent electrician and "a really good guy."
