Warren Eugene "Dick" Fisher

Warren Eugene "Dick" Fisher, 88, of Lake Toxaway, went home to be with the Lord Saturday, Nov. 12, 2016.

Born to the late Warren Isaiah Fisher and Edith Montieth Fisher in Lake Toxaway, he was a native and lifelong resident of Transylvania County.

He was employed by the Glouster Lumber Company until his voluntary enlistment in the United States Navy during World War II. After his active service, he served in the United States Naval Reserves for eight years.

He worked and retired at the Ecusta Paper Mill in Pisgah Forest.

In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife, Melda Inez Murr Fisher; daughter, Christy Leigh Fisher; sisters, Lucille Owen, Willie Bryson and Dorothy Rogers; and brothers, Ray Fisher, Ben Fisher and Jim Fisher.

Survivors include his children, Lee and Sherry Fisher and Donny and Barbara Fisher; grandchildren, Luke and Jessica Fisher, Shana and Derrick Huggins, Tassie Fisher; great-grandchildren, Annie Fisher, Owen Fisher, Jaece Huggins, Avi Huggins, Emma Fisher, Harper Fisher and Paislee Fisher; a sister, Ruby Pruitt; extended family, adopted family and friends (too many to name).

He was an avid hunter (especially for bear), outdoorsman and farmer. He loved spending time in the woods and garden. God certainly knew what He was doing when He planted him in these mountains of Western North Carolina. He walked all through them for the last 88 years and enjoyed every step of the way.

His favorite thing to do was spending time with his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He had a huge heart for kids. He loved them and they loved him.

He was a member of the North Toxaway Baptist Church. He also enjoyed attending Midway Bible Baptist Church. He thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated this life that God granted him. "It's been a good ride - absolutely!"

The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2016, at Lake Toxaway Baptist Church.

Burial will follow in the church cemetery with military graveside rites conducted by the United States Navy and the Honor Guard for Transylvania County Veterans.
