John Franklin Fisher, beloved husband, brother, uncle and friend, died peacefully at home in the arms of his loving family on August 6, 2019. John was born in San Antonio, Texas, on January 14, 1950, to the late Jack F. and Mary C. Fisher.
John volunteered for the USAF and served honorably in Vietnam. He also played a dynamic role in his family’s business, Sanders-Fisher Auto Body. John is remembered for his generosity of spirit and his deep love for his family and his dogs, Kiwi and Biscuit. A very loving son, John was the primary caregiver for his mother in her final years. A talented conversationalist, John made friends easily. His humor brought frequent laughter and lifted the spirits of those he loved. He was an avid learner and collector. He was keenly intelligent and developed expertise in many varied skills and hobbies. As we always liked to say, “Johnny can fix anything from the crack of dawn to a broken heart.”
John was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Mary; brother, Michael G. Fisher; and niece and nephews, Corrie, Dustin, and Shane Fisher. John is survived by his wife JoAnn; brother Mark Fisher and wife Dorothy; sister Cathy Somody and husband Ron; nephews and nieces Kristine and Scott Frantzen, Michael and Jennifer Rhea, Travis and Dana Fisher, Lauren Somody, Catrina Somody; step-daughters Jennifer and Rebecca Ramirez; best friend Allan Yoast; and many other close friends.
