It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Frederick Delano Fisher, affectionately known as "Fred" to his friends and family. Fred passed away on May 4, 2023, at Frederick Health Hospital in Maryland surrounded by loved ones.
Fred was born on July 28, 1933, in Maryland to Guy R. Fisher and Julia Cathern Carbaugh. He had three brothers - Roscoe Fisher, Grayson Fisher, and Norman Fisher - and a sister, Marguarite Masser. He graduated from Frederick High School in 1951 and went on to serve his country in the U.S. Army from 1953-1955.
After completing his military service, Fred began a successful career as a builder of homes in Frederick Maryland. He took great pride in his work and was known for constructing beautiful homes that families would cherish for generations. In addition to his work as a builder, Fred was an active member of the Frederick Church of the Brethren.
One of Fred's proudest accomplishments was traveling to over 100 countries and all continents of the world. Whether it was exploring natural wonders or immersing himself in different cultures, Fred never lost his sense of childlike wonder and curiosity about the world around him.
When he wasn't traveling or working hard building homes for families, Fred loved nothing more than spending time with his beloved grandchildren camping and playing games with them.
Fred is survived by his wife Amelia Fisher; son Kirk Allen Fisher (Dianna); daughter Kim Gilbert (Dorsey IV); granddaughters Julia Fisher, Sarah Fisher, Grace Fisher, Faith Fisher, Isabella Fisher, Chloe Gilbert; sisters-in-law Elaine Rowe and Carolyn Fisher; and many nieces and nephews.
The family will receive friends on Thursday, May 11, 2023 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Stauffer Funeral Home, 1621 Opossumtown Pike Frederick, MD 21702. The family will also receive friends from 10:00am to 11:00 am on Friday, May 12, 2023 at the Frederick Church of the Brethren located at 201 Fairview Ave, Frederick, MD 21701. Services will follow at 11:00am at the church.
Fred's presence and warmth will be dearly missed by all those who had the good fortune of knowing him. He may be gone, but his legacy of kindness, curiosity about the world, and love for family will live on through those he touched throughout his life.
