Bruce Fisher passed away Sunday, Sept. 7, 2008, in Los Alamitos, just eight days before his 85th birthday.

Bruce was born Sept. 15, 1923, to Charles E. and B. Maud Fisher in Glendale.

Though he spent 30 years at sea in the Merchant Marines, there were few places he would rather spend his time ashore than in the mountains in Idyllwild.

For 45 years he spent time at his cabin with his mother, B. Maud Fisher, and then with his wife and children as often as they could get away. He loved the fresh air, Strawberry Creek, the majestic trees, hiking in Humber Park and especially the lunches at Oma’s.

Bruce will be missed dearly by his wife of 37 years, Sharon; his three children Harry, Steve and Susan; and his five grandchildren, Marty, Kevin, Brad, Johnny and Ruby; as well as all of those who had the blessing of coming into contact with his warm smile and sweet spirit.
