George A. Fisher died peacefully November 26, 2017 in Union City at the Masonic Home with his wife of 64 years Priscilla by his side. George had lived with Parkinson’s Disease for many years, but the past year had finally taken over his quality of life.
He was born in Worcester, Massachusetts to parents Eva and Willard “Bud” Fisher. He grew up in Auburn, Mass. with his brother, Robert, and his sister, June. He attended Auburn High School where he met his wife, Priscilla.
George served in the Navy from 1952-1955 as a machinists mate, then graduated Western New England College with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering in 1964. He worked at Hamilton Standard from 1960-1969.
In 1969 he moved his family to Saugus, California where he worked as a mechanical engineer at Foxboro in Valencia. In 1976, George and Priscilla moved to Leona Valley until George retired from Foxboro in 1988. While in Leona Valley, George became active with the Masons and served at the Palmdale CA #769 Lodge.
When they moved to their dream “house on the beach” in Seaside, Washington on the Long Beach Peninsula, George continued to serve at the Occident Lodge #48 in Ilwaco, Washington. This allowed George and Priscilla to later move into the Masonic Home of Union City. Not only did this allow them lifelong care, but was also the source of many friendships with the other Masons.
George was preceded in death by his son Willard and great granddaughter Aeryanna.
George is survived by his wife of 64 years Priscilla Irene (Clem) Fisher; his sons Dr. George Albert Fisher Jr. and his wife Nancy of Menlo Park, CA; Mark Fisher and his wife Sharon of Palo Alto, CA; Robert Fisher of Pasadena, CA; Jon Fisher and his wife Jolene of Van Nuys, CA; his daughters, Jan Fisher Kozelka of Sunnyvale, CA; and Pamela Roberts and her husband Kenneth of Renton, WA; his grandchildren, Katherine, Cole, Alexandria, Tatiana, Evan, Caitlyn, Chann’tell, Christopher, Wyatt, Jon Robles, Aayana , Kai’ro, and his great grandchildren, Gabriel, Isaiah, Dareous, and Josiah.
At his request, no services will be held. His ashes will be scattered at sea.
