Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us everyday. Unseen, unheard, but always near. So loved, so missed, so very dear.

John was everything. We met during high school and became instant friends. He was the best man at my wedding and became the godfather to my children. Having the pleasure to have known John for 46 years made him become part of my family. John was a person to know and love and was loved by so many people. He has the purest heart and has touched so many lives. And while he will forever be missed, he will never be forgotten. My heart is heavy knowing that John is no longer with us, but knowing that he would want us to continue celebrating life gives comfort in this tough time. Thinking of Debbie, Beckie, and John during this difficult time.

From meeting John in high school, to becoming dear friends, to dancing away on my wedding day, to becoming the godfather of my children, John has always been there. He was the man that always brought the fun times and laughter, and even though he is no longer here with us, he lives on in our hearts and memories that we will forever cherish. My thoughts and prayers are with Debbie, Beckie, John, and all loved ones.

Heartfelt condolences to the Fisher family and friends. I had the honor of working with John in SWAP. We were both Sergeants at the time. John was one of the most pleasant, good hearted and compassionate supervisors I knew.
John never said a bad word about anyone and would always try to help others.
John was a gentlemen’s gentlemen. I am humbled to have known John for many years.
God Bless and Godspeed John !!
You will be missed !!!

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Father's arms
and tell him they're from me.
Tell him that I love him and miss him,
and when he turns to smile,
place a kiss upon his cheek
and hold him for awhile.
Because remembering him is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

Condolences to the family. Sgt smooth was always learning and I learned alot from him. When ever we worked together, I felt more like a partner than him being a supervisor. But I always had total respect for him. It was an honor to have had him in my family's life. And my time at work was amazing.
Rest in peace, I salute you. ✝️
