  • He will be missed, greatly! He had a good life. Did the things, he loved to do.
    Loved the stories, he told, about how he and Nana, met. How she supposely, chased him. 🙂 His school days. Worked on the farm. He was a hard working man. Gave his all, in what ever, he did.
    Was like Dad to me for, 43 yrs. Nana, was a MOM and best friend. I was kind of scared of his at first. but, he won me over, by teasing me, and saying thing, to get me to turn, different shades of red.
    May he rest in peace. He wasnt happy at all, when, he couldnt get out and do things. He was always on the doing, things in garage or trucking. wasnt one to sit still. He happy now! 😉
    Love ya! Gail

My fondest memories of Wayne were; when I was a dispatcher @F&W, Wayne usually came in every Sunday morning and he would sit and talk to me, His stories entertained me, then usually Chet and Max would show up and they would reminence. Great time, great men, sadly all gone now.

  • Dear Fisher family,
    So sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing.
    We remember Larry’s dad George telling stories about their high school days. Seems like they had a lot good times together during school and throughout their lives.
    Can’t remember seeing Wayne when he didn’t have a smile on his face or a story to tell.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time
    Larry and Luanne Dill

  • Grampa was a great man. Him and Nana defined my early childhood. Only good memories come rushing back to my mind. Nana’s HSN addiction, how spotless their house always was, “cherry milk,” her never empty cookie jars, and her special sausage and egg omelets. Grampas old truck. The smell of the “garage” when he got home. Grampas loved watching westerns and would frequently fall asleep during them. When he would come home from work, I would always try and rassle his socks off, so I could make his nails pretty, then his hair. He had endless stories about the good old days and they were always great. Too many great memories. It’s sad he never got to meet Aubree but I know the both of them are smiling at us from the heavens. I hope that my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren feel about me the way that I adored (and everyone else adored) Nana & Grampa.
    I will love you both always! <3

  • I’m sorry for your loss.He lived a long life and according to the Bible at (Psalms 90:10) he had “special mightiness”. May you cherish the memories you had together. In the future, by means of the resurrection,(John 11:35-44) you will have the opportunity to be reunited with “WAYNE” again without any ailments.(Isaiah 33:24) May you look towards that hope.

  • You will be missed so very much. I always enjoyed all the stories you told and the laughs you shared. You will never be forgotten. Love -Amy Helms & Denver Fisher
