Glenn Thomas Fischer Glenn Thomas Fischer, 80, of Madison, passed away peacefully on Thursday, September 5, 2013, at Hospice House in Charlottesville, Virginia. He was born on March 8, 1933, in Buffalo, New York, the son of the late Elmer T. Fischer and Ruth M. Winters Fischer. He was preceded in death by his two sisters and brothers-in-law, Pat and Joe Fullone and Linda and Norm Gottler; a son, Tommy Fischer; daughter-in-law, Debbie Fischer; and former wife and friend, Donna Fischer. He is survived by his three sons, David Fischer and his wife, Angie, of Louisa, Greg Fischer and his wife, Carmen, of Earlysville, and Mark Fischer of Orange. He is also survived by five grandchildren, Morgan and Elijah Fischer, both of Louisa, and Sydney, Zach and Cole Fischer, all of Earlysville. Upon graduating from South Park High School in Buffalo, New York, in 1950, Glenn entered into the United States Marine Corps where he proudly served his country from July 1950 until July 1954. During that time he received four medals for his service, the Korean Service Medal, the UN Service Medal, the Naval Occupation Service Medal and the National Defense Service Medal. Glenn celebrated his life with a great love for his family. One of his great passions in the life was golf. He spent many happy hours on the golf course and when he wasn't playing, he was watching tournaments or reading about the sport that he loved. Glenn, or "Fish" as he was affectionately named by many, will be deeply missed by family and friends whose lives he touched. Glenn wanted to express his gratitude to Paul and Janet Foster of Madison Motors, where he worked for over 20 years until his most recent illness. Madison Motors was his extended family where he spent many years among friends. A private family memorial service will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank Dr. Robert Battle, Adriene Garo, RN and all of the staff at Hospice House for their care and friendship. Memorial contributions may be made to the Hospice of the Piedmont, 675 Peter Jefferson Pkwy., Suite 300, Charlottesville, VA 22911. Anderson Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. firstname.lastname@example.org.
