Condolence From:
Condolence: John Stanley Fisher Jr. Eulogy
Isaiah 26:15-18 The Message (MSG)

But the living you make larger than life.
The more life you give, the more glory you display,
and stretch the borders to accommodate more living!
I liked this verse because it speaks of being larger than life through Christ and how that helps us be more alive. This reminds me of John – he was larger than life.
I am, Sheri, John’s sister. John is known in my household as “Big Boogie”. Rachael, my daughter, loving called by John, as “Little Boogie”. Now, I don’t know how, when or why this got started but John had a knack of reaching us all of us in a deep personal and meaningful way- whether it be by a loving nickname, an action, good deed or random act of kindness.
How do I even begin to tell the life story of John Stanley Fisher Jr? …Big Boogie…the son, brother, husband, father and friend who we come together to remember today – I will do my best to speak on behalf of his loving family and friends.
John’s faith helped him to be the man he came to be. Early on he served the church as an altar boy – likely this fashioned his servant heart. His faith may have been quiet, yet his actions spoke of God’s love. He would often turn to his faith in challenging times and would accompany my mother to weekly mass – John found solace in his faith.
John had the following 7 characteristics in common with larger than life also known as Charismatic individuals:
1. One they have a unique voice with John I’m not so sure it was the voice but more so the mischievous raspy laugh …and that smile that lit up his face when he laughed
2. Two they are emotional – it’s not that John was laughing or crying – his emotion was demonstrated by his big expressions – look at the pictures you have and the ones you will see today, and you will see all of Johns’ incredible expressions
3. Three they are authentic – he was able to filter his expression and feelings so that he did not come across heartless or over opinionated
4. Four they make big gestures – John was a powerful force with his gestures of generosity- He had a heart for the elderly – as a young teen John would often be up at Mr. Hitchcock’s house in Ohio – helping him with yard work and common repairs around his house – as an adult John took care of his neighbor Ed –he built Ed a wheelchair ramp, Ed’s wife would call many timers including during the night and John was always there for them. Because John was also known as “Big John” because of his stature lifting Ed to the bed was a piece of cake. John would even bath Ed – I am a nurse by license – John was a nurse by nature.
5. Five they know how you fell – because of this John made us all feel uniquely special and important
6. Six It’s all about you - -John made us all feel valued and John loved being around people
7. Seven They are a person for all persons – look around the room – above all else you were not a title or status to John – you were a person – he gave you a chance no matter your race creed or color
I have always said the real shame in challenging situations is not learning or growing from the event. I know right now in our grief it is hard to think about what there is to learn in a life lost too soon.
John demonstrated his love for Christ by the way John lived his life and this verse gives us hope and encouragement in our days to come:
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 New International Version (NIV)
16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

In honor of John’s life please go out and make a difference and do loving acts of kindness so that through those moments Johns spirit lives on.
I will leave you with this quote as this is especially meaningful to the family:
“Be Kind, for everyone you meet is fighting their own battle.

Condolence: A fond memory I have of John: I remember many years ago we went skiing at Breckenridge. The tree skiing in the gladed aspens was a hoot, but John kept bailing out and, being a great skier, I couldn't figure out why. Finally I asked him what was up, and he said "I just can't shoot the hole you can Carol."

Condolence: We have been friends with the Fisher family for many years and send our prayers and deepest sympathy. We want to share one of our many memories.

We will always remember the St. Patricks Day snow storm at Tiger Run when John Jr. decided that he and Wanda needed to take her NEW VOLVO for a ride up Tiger Rd. About 8 hours later after a lot of digging, cussing and laughing we saw the sun rise; and finally all the people and vehicles were safe and sound and soaking were back at Tiger Run with another memory to talk and laugh about.

Condolence From: Donald J Andrysiak
Condolence: My family and I were blessed to have spent time through the years with John and the Fishers. We have so many great memories of skiing and motorcycle riding at Caberfae in Michigan and Vail. His smile, kindness and love for fun are just a few things that I will always remember and cherish. I will miss seeing him during my Colorado trips and will miss the conversations we had over the phone through the years. I will miss following him down the trails and hearing about his latest adventures. My first Harley ride ever to Morrison for lunch was awesome, our dirtbike ride on the Continental Divide was incredible, night skiing and pot luck dinners at Caberfae were the best. He exposed me to many exciting things, led me down runs/trails I never imagined I could handle and just made the normal things more fun by him just being there with us. His devotion to family was always something I admired about him and use as an example for my own life. RIP my friend and may God bless your family and friends during this difficult time.

With deepest sympathies and love, Donnie Andrysiak

Condolence: My most recent memory of John was at Nanny's birthday, I really enjoyed talking to him and it was great to see him. He enjoyed hearing of my travels and about my business. I felt I could learn a lot from him, about business and life. I was deeply saddened by the news. My deepest condolences to my Aunt Wanda, my cousins Trey, Summer, Taryn and Amber. I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish I could be there. Sending prayers for everyone.
