Mark Wayne Fisher

November 04, 1940 ‒ January 16, 2021

Delaware, Ohio

Mark Wayne Fisher, age 80, of Delaware, passed away peacefully in his home Saturday, January 16, 2021.

Wayne was born November 4, 1940 to the late Mark and Edna (Thompson) Fisher.  He graduated from Big Walnut High School and enjoyed a career in the grocery business until retirement.  Wayne was also a lifetime farmer of grain and livestock. With a watchful eye on the weather and the grain market, he was always aware when daylight was fading but always had time for his family; in his eyes, his greatest achievement.  Wayne lived life by the mantra of his favorite song, Elvis Presley’s “My Way”, the inspirational namesake of his family farm.  He plotted his path and stubbornly stuck to his principles.

Wayne is survived by his wife of 61 years, Brenda Fisher; children, Shelly (Al) Myers of Delaware, Sherry Fisher of Delaware, and Mark Jr. (Deborah) Fisher of Ashley; grandchildren, Mark W. III (Jessica) Fisher of Sunbury, Ryan Fisher of Delaware, Andrew Fisher of Mt. Gilead, Jacob Myers of Delaware; great- grandsons, Andrew and Thomas Fisher; brother, Max (Cindy) Fisher of St. Louis; nephew, Alex Fisher of Lake Forest Park, Washington.

No funeral service will be scheduled.  A gathering of Wayne’s family and friends for a celebration of life ceremony will be scheduled later this year.

Memorial contributions may be made to Heartland Hospice of Marion, 685 Delaware Avenue, Suite #300, Marion, OH 43302 in Wayne’s memory.

The DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home of Sunbury is honored to serve the Fisher family.  Please visit to share a memory or condolence with the family.

  • I’m very saddened to learn of Wayne’s passing. My family owned the Lewis & Coffing IGA store in Fredericktown in which Wayne was our warehouse coordinator with Super Foods Services for several years. Always appreciated his learned advice in managing our supermarket…plus his friendly manner was always a welcome delight, too. Those were the “good ole days”.
