Snodgrass Funeral Home
Richard L Fisher, 58 of South Charleston passed away Sunday November 27th after a long illness.
Rick worked for the State of West Virginia for many years until he had to retire due to his disabilities. He always wanted to thank those that donated so much leave time to him at work. It really touched his heart and can never be repaid.
Rick was the most optimistic person we have ever met. He could make a bad situation so much better with just his words. His wit and sense of humor was what everyone loved about him. He had such a kind and gentle soul. He was so proud and adored his wonderful sons and grandchildren.
We are truly heartbroken that he is gone but he had Christ in his heart and we know that he has him in his arms and he is no longer struggling to breathe and is no longer in pain. All through his illness he always kept a positive attitude and his sense of humor and there are not a whole lot of people we know could have done that. Having Christ in his heart was the main reason for this.
Nancy wants to give a very special thank you to his primary care doctor, Dr. Mary Maurer for taking such wonderful care of him these past couple of years.
Preceding him in death were his parents, Kermit and Mary Fisher and his mother in law, Greta Pridemore.
Survivors include his best friend and beloved wife, Nancy. Two sons, Ricky (Morgana) Fisher and David (Christy) Fisher all of Mississippi. His sister, Diana Haynes of Charleston and his 2 grandsons, Mason Conner Fisher and Vince Skinner also of Mississippi.
In keeping with his wishes, his body will be cremated.
There will be visitation at Snodgrass Funeral Home in South Charleston on Wednesday November 30th from 5 – 7pm with a small service immediately following.
