Michael Dennis Fischer December 19, 1967 – January 17, 2014. Mike graduated from Kennewick High School in 1986. He then attended CBC, where he learned how to repair and paint cars; especially high-end vehicles, including motorcycles and helicopters. While in high school, Mike enjoyed racing BMX bikes. One of his favorite past times was to play pranks on family and friends; especially in a cooking class, where he and a friend switched salt with sugar in every kitchen except theirs. Mike and three of his friends started "Diddly Squat". They wrote their own lyrics and music and traveled across the United States in an old van with very little money. Mike continued to write lyrics and perform with other bands such as The Stickman, Laceration and Aspirin Feast. As other bands traveled through the Tri-Cities, Michael would invite band members to spend the night. He was almost like a pied piper, playing music and people following him. Mike was a very caring and loving person. He was always helping people even though it may have impacted his own plans. Mike was always there to lend a helping hand. He had a rough exterior but he had a heart of gold and people just naturally trusted him. Michael taught us many things through the years: He never looked down on someone less fortunate then himself, in fact he would give the shirt off his back. He never judged people or treated them unfairly. Material possessions was not something he cared about. He showed us the true meaning of being humble and treating others how he wanted to be treated. We loved his sense of humor, his infectious laugh, his continual teasing, and Michael just being Michael. He worked hard and was proud of what he accomplished. He was an inspiration to all of us. Michael will be missed greatly and will leave a void in our lives that cannot be filled. We thank God that we, had the opportunity to share in Michael's life, the good, the bad and the many peaks and valleys which molded Mike into the person we all came to know and love. Michael showed his love for his family and in return was loved and cherished by all of us. He will always be our hearts' treasure. Michael is survived by his wife Nora Fischer of Lakewood; his parents, Dennis and Ruth Fischer (Benton City); grandmother Edith Fischer (Sunnyside); two sisters, Arlene Peterson and Michelle Wilson and their spouses Eric and Mike; Michael's two sons, Mikhail and Miles. He has three nieces, SarahAnne and LeAnne Peterson and Celicia Fischer. He was also a great uncle to Haegon and Vienna Peterson. The service to celebrate Michael's life will held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, January 25 at Emanuel Baptist Church located at 1116 North 20th Ave., Pasco WA 99301. A reception will be held at the church immediately following the service. We encourage you to come and share your experiences of Mike.
