June 20, 1937 ~ July 31, 2014

Gary Fischer, 77, of Wenatchee, WA, passed away July 31, 2014, with his family at his side. He was born June 20, 1937, to Carl and Esther Fischer in Everett, WA. Gary graduated from Lake Stevens High School with the class of 1957.

Over the years together, they lived in Lake Tahoe, NV, Lake Stevens, WA, Fish Lake, WA and finally Wenatchee, WA. Gary loved sports, hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities, but most of all, time spent with his family.
