Eugene Francis Fischer Obituary
FISCHER, Eugene Francis Eugene Francis Fischer passed away at his home in Georgetown, Texas, on Saturday, November 23, 2019. Gene was born on October 14, 1928, in Austin, Texas, to his parents, Cornelius Alfred Fischer and Amy Weber Fischer. Gene was the fourth oldest of his eight (8) brothers and sisters. Gene was preceded in death by his siblings Cornelius "Tookie" Fischer, John Joseph Fischer, Alfred "Sonny" Fischer, and Dorothy Fischer Adams. Gene is survived by his siblings Sister Claudia Fischer, Pat Fischer Crotchet, and Agnes Fischer Riley. Gene graduated from St. Edward's High School in Austin, Texas. He later married the love of his love, Joe Ann Canady Fischer ("Kandy") at St. Mary's Cathedral in Austin, Texas on October 14, 1950. Gene and Kandy were lovingly married for 68 years until Kathy passed earlier this year on January 2, 2019. They are now rejoined in eternal life together. In his younger years, Gene worked for Lindsey Automotive before working his way up the ladder in Southwestern Bell Telephone Company's Engineering Department. After decades of loyal service, Gene retired from his position at Southwestern Bell Telephone Company in the early 1990's. Gene and Kandy were blessed with four (4) children, David Howard Fischer, Daniel Gray Fischer, Nancy Kay Heaton, and Larry Eugene Fischer.

Gene and Kandy made the most of their life together. The couple spent their time perfecting their picturesque gardens and cleaning up at couple's bridge games with friends. Gene also enjoyed bird watching, woodworking, anything historical, and spending time with his family and numerous friends. Gene was also devout member of St. Helen's Catholic Church in Georgetown. A mass and celebration of Gene's life for family and friends will be held at St. Helen's Catholic Church located at 2700 E. University Avenue, Georgetown, Texas 78628, on a later date.
