FRANK MARTIN FISHER Frank Martin Fisher, 86, of Kure Beach passed away on Sunday, July 20, 2014 at Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter. Frank was born on June 8th, 1928, in Chicago, Illinois, to the late Harold and Anne Fisher. Frank is survived by his wife, Margaret; his nine children, Mary Anne Reed (John), Julie McKenna (Ned), Therese Triumph (Tom), Frank Jr. (Tricia), John (Celia), Tom (Lynne), David (Patti), Mark (Kassandra), and Megan Aboody (Ilan); his 27 grandchildren; and his sister, Edith Fisher. Frank was a graduate of Leo High School (1946). He graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1950 with a degree in mechanical engineering. In 1952, he entered the U.S. Army in the Corps of Engineers during the Korean Conflict. Frank's career with US Steel lasted for the next 40 years. Frank and Margaret Malone were married in West Roxbury, Massachusetts, on June 12, 1954. Together they raised nine children. In 1990, Frank retired from US Steel and began working for Magneco-Metrel Corporation. They made great friends while they lived in Chicago, Pittsburgh, Yardley PA, and, finally, in their current residence of Kure Beach, North Carolina, where they have lived for the last 14 years. Frank was a member of Wilmington Senior Men's Club, American Legion and Friends of Fort Fisher. Beyond his legacy as a great father, who never missed one of his children's sporting events, Frank loved the University of Notre Dame, bagpipe music, hockey, his rose garden but above all Frank loved his family. A visitation will be held from 9:00-10:00 am on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church with a funeral mass to follow at 10:00am. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Immaculate Conception Catholic Church or Lower Cape Fear Hospice of Wilmington, NC. Condolences to the family at Andrews Valley Chapel
