Gerald Lee Fisher (Jerry), 80, of Creswell, Ore., passed away on Aug. 21, 2021 after a sudden brief battle with heart disease.
Jerry was born on Feb. 18, 1941 to Oran and Uleen Fisher in Toledo, Ohio. After graduating from Rodgers High School in 1959, he spent 30 years with Chrysler Corporation in Perrysburg, Ohio.
In 1959, he met the love of his life, Mary Ann Urbanski, and they wed in 1961, going on to have three children, Jeff, Scott and Nikki, and three grandchildren, Joseph, Lauren and Isaac. They settled in Sylvania, Ohio, and spent many weekends at their cottage at Nettle Lake. Jerry prioritized family above all else.
After retiring in 1998, Jerry and Mary Ann moved west to be nearer to their children. Jerry spent much of his time golfing with friends at Middlefield Golf Course and constantly keeping busy around the house and yard. He could fix literally anything, and was an amazing woodworker and auto mechanic, a hobby he started as a young boy. Jerry loved animals from a young age. He was well liked by everyone who met him, and enjoyed talking to anyone he came across.
Jerry was predeceased by his daughter Nikki in 2009, and is survived by his loving wife Mary Ann, son Jeff and daughter-in-law Tina, son Scott and daughter-in-law Shari, grandchildren Joseph, Lauren and Isaac, and son-in-law Bryan Rosa.
Memorial service will be held at a later date to be determined.
