Jay Fisher went to be with the Lord at the age of 59. Jay was born September 6, 1962 to Sandra and Gary Fisher. Jay married the love of his life, Susan (Magers) Fisher on October 29, 2015. Jay and Susan met through Jay’s work.
As the story goes, Susan invited Jay over to give her an estimate to remodel her living room. Nothing ever came of the estimate but the two started to date and fell in love from there. Jay spent his time loving his wife, watching his kids and grandkids grow and performing the craft that he loved.
Jay and Susan loved more in 5 years than most couples do in a lifetime. They spent everyday together, since their first date. Jay discovered happiness that he had never known. He found a soulmate. He wanted to make every single day better than the last for her. Susan was his world and Jay was her baby. It was with Susan that Jay found what he wanted to do with the rest of his life, make her happy. He did just that.
Jay was a general contractor for around 45 years. He worked alongside his father Gary Fisher for most of his earlier years. He learned the ins and outs of the trade and discovered that he was a natural in this field. He ran his own crew at 15 years old. After that he started working for Charles Sailor. He and his crew would work 3-4 jobs at once. He eventually started selling his own projects and decided to start his own business. He was the best at what he did. ‘This is my lively hood’ he’d say. He treated every job and every customer with that mindset. It was because of that mindset and the quality of his work, that he had such loyal customers. He was honest, hardworking and never let a customer feel they were unfairly treated. Word-of-mouth was his marketing and he was able to start his own business and do what he did because of that loyalty and trust.
As a father, Jay Fisher loved with everything he had. He gave his kids happy times and held them up through the bad times. Jay was always there when they needed him. Every choice he made was for his kids and he didn’t go anywhere without them. His kids looked to him like a hero. He was the ideal example of what a man should be, whether it was setting that example for his son, or setting the example for what his daughters should seek out in a man. His kids are left with memories. Happy memories, sad memories and, mostly, memories of how goofy he could be. He had the best sense of humor, you never saw it coming. Whether he was dancing or hollering a phrase that no one had ever heard, and probably had never said, from the other room. He’d always leave everyone crying in laughter. Jay could take a bad situation and have everyone smiling by the end of it. He didn’t leave his kids behind, he left them with a lifetime supply of lessons, love and memories. No one can look back on their time with Jay and not smile.
Jay Fisher was preceded in death by his father Gary Fisher, his great grandmother Sallie Kate “Granny” Fisher, and great uncle Claude Thomas “Toby” Fisher.
Jay Fisher is survived by his mother Sandra Fisher, his four siblings: Kari and Gregg Miller, Coy and Anita Fisher, Jessie and Kevin Keebler and Sally and Pat Leonard.
