Obituary of Glenn L. Fisher

Glenn Lee Fisher, the son of Edd Fisher and Blanche Frances Sterba Fisher, was born June 21, 1943 in Belleville, Kansas and passed away on April 30, 2012 at the Republic County Hospital, Belleville, Kansas at the age of 68 years, 9 months and 9 days.

Glenn grew up on a farm north of Cuba and attended grade school at Eureka Rural School near his farm home north of Cuba and graduated from Cuba High School in 1961.

After high school, Glenn worked for The Foodmart and O.K. Tire in Belleville. In the fall of 1963 Glenn journeyed to Kansas City Missouri, where he attended trade school studying diesel and automotive mechanics. While in Kansas City, Glenn worked for KCTV Educational Network as a cameraman. When he returned from Kansas City, Glenn worked for Newton Motor Company in Fairbury, Nebraska. In 1965 he returned to his first love-farming. He also worked for the Kansas Grain Inspection. Glenn was a professional carpenter and built all of the cabinets in his home. But his full-time career was always farming and raising cattle.

Glenn was united in marriage to Barbara Ann Snapp on July 9, 1965 and to this union two children were born-Natalie Sue and Blaine Alan. Glenn and Barbara resided on the family farm south of Belleville his entire married life. Glenn’s passions were his family, farming and hunting. Glenn was a member of the Central Christian Church where he served as a deacon. He was also a member of the Salt Creek Archer Club, Kansas Livestock Association, and a former member of the Eagles. He loved nothing more than spending time looking for deer with his son and grandsons and checking cows with his wife. He was passionate about his grandchildren and all of their activities. Many of us remember his boisterous voice assisting the officials at Brett and Taylor’s ball games. Glenn had two of the most talented hands a person could ask for. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix, re-engineer or create.

He was a lover of nature and wide open spaces. He loved, hunting and fishing and watching things grow whether it was in a field of newly planted soybeans or a new baby calf that had just touched the ground. His compassion and humor were far reaching, and he made us all laugh and feel loved and treasured.

Glenn was preceded in death by his parents, Edd and Blanche Fisher and Edwin and Mary Frances Snapp as well as his sister, Jo Ann Fisher Milner. Glenn is survived by his wife, Barbara Ann Fisher of Belleville, Kansas; two children-a daughter: Natalie Fisher of Washington, Kansas and a son: Blaine Fisher and wife, Jennifer of Mission, Kansas. He is also survived by his grandchildren Brett and Taylor Vogt of Washington, Kansas and Cole and Ben Fisher of Mission, Kansas, other relatives and many, many friends. Glenn will be sorely missed by each and every one of us.

Funeral services will be held at 10 AM Friday, May 4, 2012, at the Central Christian Church with Pastor Mark Imel officiating. Graveside series will be held at Pleasant Hill Cemetery southeast of Belleville.
