Jon D. Fisher
Jon David Fisher, 73, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past 27 years, formerly of Pontiac, MI passed away Saturday, May 6, 2017 in Fort Myers, FL. He was born September 4, 1943 in
Anderson IN. Jon’s parents were Donald Fisher and Thelma (Fisher) Propst, now deceased.
Jon was an honest man who believed his word was his bond & treated people fairly. Jon while
attending Anderson High School was a trumpet player in the marching & dance bands. He was proud of the fact that they took State Championship 3 years in a row, and that record still stands today. He shared his love of music with us all but in particular with Alicia, Makinna & Virgil. Earth, Wind & Fire was his favorite band. After high school he joined the Air Force where he served honorably as an Air Refueling Specialist. He continued his love of music with a small band in his spare time. During his last year in the service he met his wife Janis, on a blind date and little did he know how the irony of that fact would impact the rest of their lives together. Upon an honorable discharge he started working for Pontiac Motors and as a Union Steward he fought for fairness in the work place for 24 years. Upon retirement in 1989, he moved the family to Cape Coral Florida, due to his love of fishing and the water, where he lived the rest of his days. His LOVE & SUPPORT of Home & Family is his greatest accomplishment. Jon’s quiet love will be missed by all.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Janis Fisher of Cape Coral; two loving children, Nicoll Fisher (significant other, Ken Schwable) of Fort Myers, FL and Bret Fisher (wife, Ana Fisher) of Fort Myers, FL; his adoring grandchildren, Alicia Fisher (significant other and adoptive grandson, Virgil Whipple III), Makinna Fisher, also Helen De Bem Silva and Josh Silva who have joined the family with the recent marriage of Bret and Ana; as well as former daughter-in-law, Elaine Maki of Fort Myers, FL. Jon was preceded in death by a host of pets as well, showing his love of animals.
His Military Service will be honored with the presentation of the flag and a portion of his cremated remains to be placed at the Sarasota National Cemetery. There will also be A Private Celebration of Life for family and close friends to include the scattering of his remains.
