Bud Fisher, of Riverview, 78, passed away peacefully at the Moncton Hospital on December 17, 2017. He was the son of the late Aubrey and Neva (Sealy) Fisher, both of Moncton. He was predeceased by his wife of 52 years, Joyce Marilyn (Rawline) Fisher, just over a year ago.
Bud was born in Campbellton, butgrew up in the Moncton area. As a young man he headed west, joining the RCMP. A medical discharge brought him home to the maritimes, where he began a long career in the petroleum industry, first with Imperial Oil, and finally with Co-op Atlantic. Over the years, he was a member of the Kinsmen Club of Bathurst and volunteered with the Boy Scouts of Canada in Riverview. After retirement in 1998, he rediscovered many interests including working on home improvements at both the family cottage in Shediac and the house where he and Joyce raised their family. He also reconnected with a number of old friends, enjoyed taking day trips with Joyce, photography, and cooking, always in desperate search of the perfect biscuit recipe. Bud was known for his great sense of humor, and maintained this even up until his final days.
Bud took great pride in his family, and will be lovingly remembered by his eldest son Brian, his wife Lori (Maxwell) and their children, Erin and Kevin of Moncton; son Dean, his wife Louiseann (Wiggins) and their children Haley and Kyle, of Mississauga; and daughter Sharon (Lewis), her partner Paul, her children Scott and Jenna and their father, Kevin, all of Moncton.
He is also survived by one brother, Layton Fisher of Calgary, his children and their families. He was predeceased by his sister-in-law, Jean (Anthony), and in-laws Gordon and Marjorie (Arthur) Rawline.
As per Bud’s request, there will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. A private celebration of life will be held in the new year. Arrangements have been made by Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd, Riverview (869-2007).
