My condolence to the Fisher Family. A memory that I will never forget is the very, very large volume of milk that was required to satisfy the thirst of Glenn and I after basketball practice in Junior High, some 53 years ago! Keeping You Close in Thought, Toni and Rodney Metzger

Martha, I did not know your brother but want you to know my sympathies are with you. I am so sorry for your loss. God Bless you and your family. Janice

George was a very easy going man. I will always miss our conversation over a drink in the afternoon at the moose . We talked about everything and sometimes nothing that made sense. R.I.P GEORGE till we meet ago .

Joan and family, our prayers are with you as you go through this difficult time. We know how much George will be missed.
Bill and Verna Fisher

My condolence to your family. I worked with George at Milton Mfg. Co, he was one of my crew members, hope you and Pappy, have a hearts game going, but hold your cool when you get the Queen, and that was over 44 years ago. Dave

My deepest sympathy to your family. He worked with my dad Don Bruch at the mill. I use to babysit for the kids while my parents and him & Joan went out for the evening. Keeping you all in my prayers. Darlene (Bruch)Lyons
