Obituary of Scott Fisher

It is with deepest sadness, sorrow and many tears that Scotty, Kevin’s love and partner has passed, but we will always be together along with family pets, Scooter, Fishy and McTavish.  Scott (“Fish”) Fisher passed away unexpectantly on January 26. Scott was a loyal friend to so many and will be dearly missed.

Scott was born March 18, 1962 to the late Shirley (2002) and John (2012) Fisher.  Brother to the late Wayne (1997) and his wife Pat, nephew Adam (Jocelyn, their daughters Brooklyn and Ashley) and sister Wendy (Gord) and nieces Erin, Laurie, Teri. Scott is also survived by his uncle and aunt Dave and Carol, cousins Linda and Lyle. Predeceased by his grandparents and his uncle Richard Bradbeer.

Scott grew up in Kitchener on Greenbrook Drive and attended St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church, Forest Hill Public School, Queensmount Senior Public School and Forest Heights Collegiate.

As many friends can attest, Fish had a love of sports, specifically hockey, baseball, tennis, golf and bowling. Scott had an incredible right curve with his bowling hand which earned him a spot on “Bowling For Dollars”. He was an avid supporter of the Toronto Blue Jays and the Kitchener Rangers. Scott displayed an incredible gift of doing hockey play by plays at a young age as one friend fondly remembers Scott sitting in the corner at a team hockey party doing a fictitious play by play of a Kitchener Rangers game in grade 6. This gift eventually led Scott to become the public address announcer for a period of time with the Kitchener Rangers.

Another friend recalls Scott always having an Orange Crush and a hotdog between the second and third periods of the Kitchener Ranger home games. There are many fond memories that friends have of Scott from playing pickup ball hockey, tennis on hot summer days, swimming in his backyard pool, singing Yellow Bird and Mrs Robinson on his player piano, working beside him at Dutch Boy Grocery store, working at Gus Maue Sports, attending Kitchener Ranger training camps, always having the radio on listening to a hockey or baseball game and his enjoyment of eating cheeseburgers and dining out at various restaurants.  During his rounds while working at Beauticians Supply, he would meet his mother and grandmother at times for lunch at Charcoal Steakhouse, one of his favourite spots to dine.  During the summer Scott would make a trip to visit his aunt and uncle in Port Elgin, a favourite getaway destination since his childhood.

Kevin has many fond memories of the two of them taking many day trips to parks both near and far.  They took many special trips to see the Blue Jays, Anne Murray and Celtic Thunder.  They also enjoyed visiting restaurants and then critiquing the food as if they were actual food critics.  Kevin also recalled a time that Scott visited him at his family farm and driving a tractor to deliver feed for the cows, followed by bonfires and BBQs in the country, cooking burgers with Elmira Meats patties and Charcoal Steakhouse sauce, some of his favourites, along with Harmony burgers. God meant for them to be together.

Scott loved his weekly trips to Tim Hortons where he would work on his computer, catch up on the news in the Record newspaper and just observe the patrons as they would come and go, all while enjoying his cup of French Vanilla coffee.

Scott meant many things to many people. He will always be remembered for his kindness, laughter, smile and friendship.

 Rest in peace Scott, until we meet again.

As per Scott’s request, there was no visitation or public funeral. A celebration of life gathering will be held in late Spring or early Summer.  As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations can be made to the KW Humane Society, the Lung Association or the Cancer Society.
