October 19, 1916 – November 17, 2021
Aaron Fisher, 105, of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Potomac, Maryland and earlier, from New York City, died November 17, 2021, at home from a brief illness. He lived a long and meaningful life touching the lives of family, friends, strangers, and the stars. He was a plastics chemist for NASA starting in the 1970’s pioneering satellite technology which now connects the world and beyond in ways that were never imagined. He was also a WWII veteran having served in Newfoundland, Canada responsible for ordnance. Aaron, or as many called him Art, or Artie, by his wife, was a loving and very devoted husband to Ruth (nee’ Morgan) who preceded him in death in 2008. He was hands-on and loving to all: as father to David Fisher (Alberta) and Sherry Laten, and as grandfather to Joshua Fisher (Dana Goodman Fisher), Daniel Fisher (Rachel Levinson Fisher), and to Jeffrey Laten (Julie Cooper). One of his biggest joys was being the great grandfather to Jacob, Eli and Ilana Fisher and to Teddy and Ruby Fisher. He is preceded in death by his loving brother and sister-in-law, Milton and Sarah Fisher, his loving parents, Samuel and Esther Fisher, his loving brother-in-law and sister-in-law Max and Shirley Margolis and his loving in-laws, Henry and Bertha Morgan. He is also mourned by his many Fisher and Morgan nieces, nephews and their families. As the patriarch of the family, he was a good listener available whenever someone needed help, advice or praise for a job well done. He was a curious scientist, world traveler, avid cross word puzzler, passionate music lover and live theater goer, good golfer, tennis player, and a keen poker player up until a few days before he died. In addition, he loved a good corned beef sandwich with potato salad, cole slaw and chocolate ice cream. And he made the best bagel sandwiches for his family, all rooted in his early days working with his brother Milton in their parents’ deli in NYC. He never forgot others, feeling strongly about social justice, Jewish and medical causes. Aaron Fisher was able to live such a long and happy life because of the support of his family and also because of the support of Morselife Private Home Care Services and the four wonderful women who were devoted family to him up until the day that he died. And, because of this, if you so desire, we would appreciate donations to be sent in his memory by check to: Mr. Irving Geffen, Senior Vice President, Morselife Marilyn and Stanley M Katz Senior Campus, 4920 Loring Drive, West Palm Beach, Florida 33417. Or, on-line at Morselife Donations. Either way, it’s important to state that the donation is in memory of Aaron Fisher. We thank you for your thoughtfulness.
