Raymond Stephen Fischer, Jr.

July 8, 1945 - September 5, 2022

Raymond Stephen Fischer, Jr., 77, of Cape Coral, FL passed away on Monday September 5th, 2022. He was born on July 8th, 1945 in Wolcott, Connecticut to Raymond and Ruth Fischer.

Raymond grew up in the town of Waterbury, Connecticut where he was an altar boy at St. Lucy’s Catholic church. He would later go on to marry his wife of 54 years, Gloria Neri in that same church in August of 1968. In 1973 Ray, Gloria and their two young children joined Ray’s siblings and moved to Cape Coral, Florida. There Ray started a painting contracting business, which remained his occupation for 30 years. Ray was many things to many people. He was a faithful son, big brother, loving husband, the sentimental Dad who saves everything, the fun uncle, and the best Grampy. He was Skippy to his Mom, Skip to his closest family and friends, Honey to his daughter in her younger years, Dad, Uncle Ray, Grampy and on occasion PeePee by the twins. He was a man of routine who loved all things history, long days at the beach floating in the Gulf, talking about his motorcycle days, and fishing. But none of that compared to his love of family and the adoration he had for his grandchildren.

He is survived by his loving wife, Gloria Fischer of Cape Coral; children, Stephen Fischer (Nicole) of Bradenton, FL, and Stacey Lakes (Travis) of Cape Coral; sister-in-law, Elaine Fischer of Cape Coral; niece, Jennifer; nephews, Jason, Jimmy, and Danny Brown; grandchildren, Stephen (Emily), Ryan (Thea), Justin (Haley), Mason (Valentina), Makenzie, Samuel, and Maria; as well as great grandchildren, Ashton, Christian, Everly, and Nolan.

Raymond was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond, and Ruth Fischer; brother and friend, Bryan Fischer; sister, Marylou Brown; as well as niece, Kelly.

Memorial services will be held at 10:30 AM on Saturday, September 17th, 2022 at Providence Christian Church, 701 Mohawk Parkway, Cape Coral, FL 33914 with Rev. Dr. Brent Lauder officiating.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care

    He is one of the kindest men I have ever known and made me feel as if I was part of his family the moment I met him. His smile was contagious and he gleamed with pride whenever he talked about his grandkids. One of my greatest gifts in life came from Mama & Papa Bone, my best friend. I will always be grateful. He leaves behind a beautiful family that mirrors his kindness and compassion. I love you all.
