Richard Allen Fisher

March 31, 1939 — October 30, 2023



Richard A Fisher, 84, Indianapolis, went to be with the Lord on October 29, 2023, after several years of worsening dementia. Dick believed that nothing in his life could win God’s approval, and he was trusting in Jesus alone for the forgiveness of his sins and a right standing with God. He looked forward with confidence to the home that God had prepared for him in heaven.

Dick was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.

He was born on March 31, 1939, in New Castle, Indiana to Donald Fisher and Elizabeth (Stubbs) Fisher. Dick attended grade school in Spiceland and high school in New Castle. Pursuing a career in pharmacy, he attended Butler University where he met the love of his life, Miriam. They were married on December 23, 1961, and were blessed with 61 years of marriage. Daughters Christy (Phil) Owen and Becky (Paul) Owen were the joy of his life. Dick involved himself in their lives as they were growing up and shared much life wisdom with them. The family has fond memories of camping trips and numerous visits to Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri.

After fifty years filling prescriptions and managing drug stores, Dick retired in 2004. He continued his hobbies of woodworking, carving, blacksmithing, knife making and metal engraving.

Dick built strong relationships with each of his grandchildren: Bethany (Scott) McEwan, Daniel (Keshia) Owen, Amy Owen, Jill (Matt) Davis, Seth Owen, and Michele Owen. Great Granddaughters Lacey, Kayla, and Madison brought him many smiles.

He is survived by his wife, daughters, grandchildren, great granddaughters, sister Linda (Charles) Holland, sister-in-law Esther Mussmann, brother-in-law Kenny (Betty) Scharfe, nephews and nieces Rich (Sara) Mussmann, Linda (Andy) Nelson, Carol (Mike) Amos, David (Drusha) Mussmann, and Heather (Michael) Reeves, and many cousins who were an integral part of his life. His family and many friends remember Dick as a great storyteller with a wonderful sense of humor.
