Bob was born on June 30, 1929 in Toledo, OH to Alfred and Harriet Fischer.

He was a Sergeant First Class in the US Army.

Following his early retirement, Bob worked in the ski industry and continued his love of nature and for the great outdoors. Bob served on many committees at his church as well.

A kind, humble and loving man, Bob will be dearly missed by all who met him.
