Los Angeles, CA
February 1, 1917 - May 21, 2015 Born February 1, 1917, Los Angeles native, Harold S. Fischer, passed away May 21, 2015. He is survived by his loving wife of 77 years, Lillie (nee Diamond); his three grateful children, Dennis (Anne), Randy (Lauren) and Jan (Daniel); his 6 beautiful grandchildren, Shana (Steve), Rachel (Matthew), Camerin (Jason), Brandon (fiancée Lauren), Amanda (Willie) and Courtney, and 7 adoring great grandchildren, Faith, Harrison, Eden, Adelyn, Emelia, Grace, and Callie. Harold graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA, then earned two masters degrees in mechanical and aeronautical engineering from Cal Tech. He worked at Douglas Aircraft helping design the DC3 airliner during wartime, and later taught engineering at UCLA. After retirement, Harold donated much of his time volunteering in the community. He read and recorded textbooks for the blind for 15 years. He was also a docent at the Museum of Science and Industry for many years. Of all his accomplishments, Harold was most proud of his long and loving marriage to his childhood sweetheart and life partner, Lillie. Rest in Peace, Harold, and know that you will be loved and remembered forever. Mom and his children thank their devoted caregivers, Jean, Rhea, Pam, Marylou, and Zarah, for their much appreciated loyalty and caring for the past 3 ½ years. They also express their gratitude to the wonderful and caring staff at Belmont Village Westwood, where Dad and Mom have resided for nearly 6 years, and the recent support of Skirball Hospice. Services will be held at Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary on Wednesday, May 27, at 12 noon.

Mr. Fischer you were not only an inspiration to Jan but believe me I heeded your words just the same! Growing up as a teen would not have been the same without your needed direction. Thank you for everything you stood for and living such a praiseworthy life. Love to you forever...

My heartfelt sympathies go out to family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise found in 1 Thessalonians 4 : 14 can bring some comfort. Knowing that there is a future for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring
