Obituary


Delbert G. Fischer

Delbert G. Fischer, was born May 1, 1936 to Gottlieb and Mathilda Fischer in Mercer, ND. He passed from this life on May 30, 2011 at Providence Medical Center in Everett with his wife by his side. He graduated from Bismarck High School and served in the US Army during the Korean War. He attended NDSU.
Del leaves behind his wife of 36 years, Nancy; sons, Stuart (Annie), Joey (Rosa) and Austin (Kari); granddaughter, Angela (Jason); and great-grandsons, Layten and Brayden; sister, Norma (Gary) and brother-in-law Anton; and many close friends and extended family.
Del was continuously employed from the time he was six years old when he worked for his father at the family grocery store opening boxes for 25 cents an hour. At age 14, he built a cabin on Apple Creek outside Bismarck that was still being lived in 25 years later. He worked for 33 years for The Boeing Company. After retirement, he and Nancy traveled the United States, Canada and Mexico in their RV. He was an active member of the Everett Senior Center for the last 9 years of his life.
A special thanks to Dr. Todd Gunderson of the Everett Clinic and Dr. Ali Samii of the UW Medical Center and the VA Puget Sound Medical Center who took such excellent care of our husband, father, grandparent and friend. You will be forever in our prayers.
