John Gary Fisher, 52, of Holts Summit, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, March 31, 2020, at the University Hospital after a brief battle with stage four lung cancer. John has left his earthly family and now is surrounded by his heavenly family.

He was born on April 20, 1967 in Independence, Mo. The oldest son of Gary and Helen (Wedge) Fisher, he was married on June 18, 1994 at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church in Hartsburg, to Kerry Ann Imsland.

John was an active member of Concord Baptist Church, and prior to that was a member of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. He was a member and supporter of the Sportsman Club and NRA.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, John graduated from Hickman High School and continued on to college at State Fair Community College in Sedalia, Mo. John and his family are the proud owners of Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken in Jefferson City, Columbia, and Rolla. He worked alongside many wonderful people – both employees and customers. Many who knew John could see how dedicated he was to his work.

In John’s spare time he could be found on the golf course or at the family farm shooting guns and riding ATV’s. His favorite memories include his childhood in Columbia, vacations, quality family time, and most of all he loved spending time with his daughters and wife.

John was a loving husband, father, son, brother and friend. He could always find someone to talk to; even if you were a stranger he treated you like he knew you forever. He was amazing about that! John was strong willed but softhearted. He loved his family dearly. He was loyal and always provided for their every need. John had a tender heart and always tried to help those in need. He was a friend to many and was loved by all.

He is survived by his wife: Kerry Fisher of Holts Summit; daughters: Victoria, Elizabeth, and Abigail Fisher of Holts Summit; mother: Helen Fisher of Holts Summit; brothers: Jim Fisher (Karen) of Holts Summit, and Jason Fisher (Melissa) of Rolla, and nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Gary Fisher.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a private family service will be held in the Freeman Chapel with the Reverend Mike Quinn officiating. Graveside services will follow at Hart Hill Cemetery. A webcast of the service will begin at 10:00 am Monday, April 6, 2020 for friends to view by going to his memorial page on Freeman Mortuary’s website. A celebration of life will be announced when restrictions for gatherings have been lifted.

Memorials are suggested to Gideon’s International.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

John brought so much joy to all around him and was one of the best bosses that I've had the honor to work with! Thinking of you with sympathy — and here for you with loving support.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

Our deepest sympathy to Helen, Kerry, their daughters, Jim, Jason and the entire family. Although we didn’t know John, after watching the beautiful and touching service for him, it makes us wish we had known this special person. I have known Helen for many years through WOW. A Dear woman of faith and always helping others. It is wonderful how she taught her boys and grandchildren to have a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior. May God comfort your family in the days to come. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Dawn & Mike Rolufs

Fisher family; So many amazing memories of growing up across the street on Cowan Dr. I remember the first time I saw John while the moving trucks were still there. While I was deeply saddened to hear of John's passing, I give thanks for the expressions of faith and hope that were John's strength and confidence. This week is a reminder our hope is in Christ Jesus and there is an eternal reunion that awaits. John is just a few steps ahead of us. May God's grace and mercy comfort your hearts in this time. Kerry, prayers for you and the girls. Helen, Jim and Jason, it has been many years but you all remain close in my heart. God bless you.
