Welcome to the memorial page for

William D Fisher, Sr

October 19, 1944 ~ June 20, 2017 (age 72)

William (Bill) Dewey Fisher, Sr, 72, of Hallowell, Maine, passed away unexpectedly in his home on June, 20, 2017, while watching TV in his favorite chair.

Bill was born in Richmond, Maine on October 25, 1944, the first of two sons born to Ella (Meserve) Fisher and Dewey P. Fisher.  Bill graduated from Richmond High School in 1962.  He then joined the United States Air Force where he did two tours of duty in the Vietnam War and was honorably discharged.   Bill spent most of his professional career in Law Enforcement and upon retiring from the Gardiner Police Department he took up courier service work to continue to serve people which was core to his nature.

Bill’s friends and family describe him as a humble, compassionate and fair man with a dry sense of humor and a common-sense approach to life.  He believed in the Golden Rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Matt. 7:12) and he lived his life accordingly.  He was an extremely proud father and looked forward to conversations and laughs with his children, family and friends, dancing with his daughter, people watching, working in the yard, a good steak, watching TV and of course, an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots, and Dallas Cowboys.

Bill will be missed beyond words and is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Gregory Fisher.  He is survived by his wife, Jill (Walker) Fisher, is three children: his daughter, Laurie Fisher, his son, William Fisher, Jr., his step-daughter, Kimberly Fiedorczyk, and his three grandchildren:  Gracyn Fisher, daughter of William Fisher, Jr., Tyme Fiedorczyk, and Chance Fiedorczyk, daughter and son of Kimberly Fiedorczyk, nieces and nephews and the remainder of his friends, family and his cat, “Baby”.

The family of William Fisher wish to especially thank the Meserve, Gerard and Malcolm families for their unwavering support and friendship throughout Bill’s life.

Visitation will be held from 11:00 am-1:00 pm on June, 24, 2017 at Staples Funeral Home, 53 Brunswick Avenue, Gardiner, Maine on Saturday.  Military Honors will immediately follow at the Richmond Cemetery, Main Street, Richmond Maine (Richmond, Exit 40 off of I-295)
