Denny E. Fisher

July 18, 1949-Feb. 6, 2014

GOSHEN — Denny E. Fisher 64, died suddenly Thursday evening at IU Health Goshen Hospital.

He was born July 18, 1949, in Goshen, to Vernon and Thelma (Kauffman) Fisher.

On March 1, 1968, he married Sandy Thomas at Clinton Brick Mennonite Church.

She survives along with three children, Chris (Adrian) Fisher, Millersburg, Sonya (Ronald) Schmucker, Goshen, and Andre (Lou Ann) Fisher, Mishawaka; five grandchildren, Samantha and Shelby Schmucker and Hannah, Colton and McKenna Fisher; a great grandchild, Blakelynn Tepen; six brothers and sisters, Wilbur (Barb) Fisher, Middlebury, June Hartman and Violet (Bill) Goodsen, both of Elkhart, Alta Hershberger, Ligonier, Robert (Maxine) Fisher, Goshen, and Steve (Diane) Fisher, Middlebury.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother Allen.

Mr. Fisher was a co-owner and operator of Goshen Farm and Lawn Center. He attended Community Church of Waterford and was a member at LifePoint Church where he was an usher. He attended Millersburg High School with the class of 1968.

Involved in many area organizations, Denny served many years on the Elkhart County 4-H Fair Board, was a co-director for the Elkhart County Tractor Pull, an honorary FFA member and director for Millersburg Little League. He also retired from the Elkhart County Farm Bureau Co-op.

Generous, jokester, hardworking, family man and hero are all words used to describe Denny by those who loved him. His wide smile, twinkling eyes and booming laugh embraced strangers, friends and family with equal delight. Given a servant’s heart, he was the first to extend a hand to anyone in need, giving his time, talents and testimony each day before sun up, and long after it had set in the sky. He was the first to laugh at the jokes he’d tell you, and any work at hand was made lighter with his humor and cheery whistle that shared the joy in his heart while helping others.

Poll

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
