Richard Ray Fischer
Richard Ray Fischer was born January 31, 1926 and died at his home April 25, 2016. He was born in Ellensburg to Raymond and Florence Fischer. Dick graduated from Ellensburg High School in 1944. He earned two degrees while attending Central Washington University and the University of Washington, in addition to post graduate studies and the U. of W. Dick served two years in the United States Naval Reserve aboard the light cruiser USS Nashville during World War II in the Asiatic Theater.
On August 18, 1951 he married June Dalton from Vancouver, Washington. He taught school for five years; worked for Boeing in the engineering department of research and development of the turbine engine; worked as a design engineer for Hill and Ingman Engineers in Seattle and worked in the engineering department for the City of Ellensburg.
Richard and June returned to Ellensburg in 1965 to live on a farm while raising their three sons.
Richard is survived by his wife June; his sons Randy (Joanna), Greg (Julie) and Dave (Lesley). His grandchildren are Joel and Jeffrey in California, Sam (Sherone) in Colville, Sara (Daren) in Germany, Shawna (Tripp) in Hawaii, Emily (Mark) in Sandy, Utah, Jill (Chris) and Baily in Ellensburg.
Great grandchildren are Averie, Owen, Eli, Francie, West, Bridger, Maren, Braydon and two more little girls due in May and June.
Richard was a member of Rotary since 1983; a member of the Timberliners of Boy Scout Troup 77. He enjoyed volunteering for R.S.V.P. and tutoring math in the G.E.D. Program. His hobbies included water color painting and sail boating where he had many wonderful experiences. Dick and his wife loved to travel and they visited many of the countries on the Pacific Rim, Europe and many states in the U.S.
At his request we will celebrate his life later this summer when his ashes will be put to rest in the Cooper Lake area with the immediate family attending.
We are so thankful for the wonderful care provided by Dr. Mark Larson, Drew Bishop, Hospice and Hospice Friends and cards and messages from his many friends.
