Seymour Fischer Obituary
Fischer, Seymour
Seymour Louis (Sy) Fischer, 90, passed away peacefully (Friday, June 30, 2017) at Brookdale Kenwood Senior Living Center in Cincinnati following a long fulfilling life. He leaves a huge loving family " his mishpacha" that includes 5 children and 10 grandchildren - Jesse Fischer and his spouse Jane Hoch Columbus, Ohio, Janis Kartal and her spouse Andrew Kartal, and their children Matthew, Rachael and Rebekah, Cincinnati, Ohio, Sara Fischer and her children Isaac, and Elizabeth Denver, Colorado, Seth and his spouse Nancy and their children Zak, and Ian, Bridgewater, NJ and Amy Fischer Diener and her children Leigh Anne, and Joel, Upper Arlington, Ohio, also nieces, nephews and many close friends. Sy is predeceased by his wife Laurel Jeanne (Sacks) Fischer, his brother Donald and his grandson Charlie.
Sy was born January 17, 1927 to Charles and Mary Fischer in The Bronx, New York and grew up across the street from the Bronx Zoo. He resided most of his life in Akron, Ohio and later in a peaceful home on Atwood Lake near Dellroy, Ohio.
Sy served proudly in the US Navy in World War II and was honorably discharged in 1946. He then attended and graduated Kent State University in 1951 with a degree in Business Administration. While there Sy was a member of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. It was also at Kent State where he met his wife Laurel who he was happily married to for 50 years. Sy was a devoted, hard working husband that dedicated most of his career to the family business as a top salesman for Sacks Electric Supply Company. He was a member of the Beth El Congregation and The Akron Jewish Center where he was a top handball player. Sy also volunteered as an auxiliary officer for the Akron Police Department and was a Free Mason.
Sy took a great interest in all people he met and had a great sense of humor. Sy loved the outdoors and raised his children from the time they were in diapers to appreciate the beauty of our National Parks through camping. He was an avid sailor brought about by his time in the Navy. However, Sy was not much of a golfer; he'd hit the ball, utter a few choice cuss words, and hit it again. Some have suggested he should have broken off the heads and turned them into fishing poles because he loved to fish and spent his later years doing just that in Melbourne Beach, Florida. We all loved him and will miss him. In his honor make a donation to something you love, and then take someone you love, to a body of water and maybe do a little fishing.
