Lewis "Lew" Fisher Notice
Fisher, Lewis Lew80, departed this life Sunday, June 15, 2014 at Vitas Hospice in Winter Park, FL. For several years, Lew had struggled with Alzheimers and at first was cared for by his loving wife, Betty before going to an Alzheimers Care Facility. Born in Hickory, North Carolina on July 3, 1933 to parents, Edward L. and Gertrude V. Fisher, both deceased. Lew attended schools in Hickory and then joined the Air Force from 1954-1957. He graduated from Clemson University with a degree in Electrical Engineering and worked for the U.S. Army where he met Betty. They were married in Greensboro, NC on August 11, 1973 and he adopted and became a wonderful father to Betty's young children, Jimmy and Kathy. The Fisher family moved to Maitland, FL in 1976 where Lew continued his work with the U.S. Army/STRICOM. He obtained additional degrees at FIT (MBA) and Rollins College (Certified Financial Planner). A calm, quiet, very gentle person, Lew was respected for his integrity and faithfulness. When Lew spoke, people listened with great respect for his thoughtfulness and wisdom. Lew thoroughly enjoyed his family and friends, Clemson football, officiating at football games, coaching baseball, playing bridge, and taking pride and supporting Betty in her activities, projects and leadership rolls. He was a dedicated volunteer for many years at the Episcopal Church of Good Shepherd Food Bank. He also served on the board of Lake of the Woods Homeowners Association.
