Dr. John Gordon Fisher, 89, of Apopka, passed away peacefully on January 4, 2020. He was born on January 12, 1930, in Cincinnati, Ohio, to the late Thomas Coalescott and Hilda Luella Fisher.

John played football at Ohio Wesleyan and graduated from Ohio State’s dental program in 1956. After running a successful dental practice for 20 years in Cincinnati, John moved his family to the central Florida area where he owned and operated two Tinder Box pipe and tobacco shops for 20+ years with his wife and son.

During his retirement years, golf quickly became a favorite pastime of John’s. He enjoyed playing several times a week with his golf buddies at Sweetwater. He had four holes-in-one and played well into his early 80’s.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 67 years, Iris; his children, Carolyn Dickerson (Bill), John Fisher, Jr. (Priscilla Davis), and Julie Smoak (Will); grandchildren, Scott and Amy Smoak, as well as numerous extended family members and friends.

John is predeceased by John, Jr.’s son, James (Jimmy) Fisher.

A celebration of John’s life will be held at 4:00 p.m. on January 12, 2020, at the Baldwin Fairchild East Altamonte Chapel on what would have been his 90th birthday.
