Otis Lee Fisher
July 4, 1938 – June 6, 2019
Otis Lee Fisher (also called Junior by his family), 80, of Hamilton, Texas passed away on Thursday morning, D-Day, June 6, 2019 at Buffalo Creek Assisted Living in Waxahachie, Texas. Services will be held on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 2:00 P.M. at Evergreen Cemetery. He was born in Ireland TX on July 4, 1938 to Martin Otis Fisher & Martha Floy Fisher of Hamilton, TX. Otis married his best girl & love of his life, Mary Carolyn Fisher on his 19th birthday, July 4, 1957 and celebrated 59 years of marriage until her death February 27, 2016. This year they will be celebrating their 62nd anniversary together in Heaven with their Lord Jesus Christ. Together they raised 3 children, Clay, Rebecca & Donna. He loved family and was an amazing father and husband. Each year he took the whole family on vacation, mostly to Colorado, to get away from the summer heat. He loved taking them away from phones, friends and TVs to not only allow time together, but have time in nature. Oftentimes, he would take the family up in the mountains in a pop-up trailer and camp close to a stream and enjoy the time of talking (or in his case listening) and being out in nature. He may have been a very quiet man, but he loved hearing everyone else talk. On occasion, you could even catch a glimpse of a smile or hear a joke told with his very dry sense of humor. He commanded respect without saying much at all and was wise, in so many aspects, beyond his years. He is survived by his 3 children, Clay Fisher and wife Connie, Rebecca Grogan and husband Ray, and Donna Fisher all of Waxahachie, TX. Grandchildren, Krystal Keller and husband Eric, Jennifer Thompson and husband Eric, Melissa Doss and husband Brian, Trevor Fisher and wife Cameron, Brittany Grogan and Tori Fisher. He is also survived by 13 great grandchildren. Otis is also survived by his sisters, Bonnie Gail Oaks and husband Robert of Oklahoma; Patsy Polley and husband Charles of Cody, Wyoming; Billy Ray Fisher and wife Bonnie of Jonesboro; brother-in-law, H.L. Hoot of Rocket, Texas and sister-in-law, Betty Fisher of Hamilton, Texas. Also surviving him are numerous nieces and nephews. Otis is preceded in death by his loving wife, Carolyn, his Parents Martin Otis & Martha Floy Fisher, his sister Vondal Hoot, brother Kenneth Fisher, infant brother Jimmy Martin Fisher, and three Grandsons: Jeremy Fisher, Trenton Fisher and Danny Grogan.
