William “Bill” Fisher, beloved husband, father, grandpa, great grandpa, brother and friend passed away the evening of November 20, 2023 at the age of 84, in Chandler, AZ.

Bill was born on August 25, 1939 in Salt Lake City, Utah to William and Berneice Fisher. As a young child he moved to Banning, California where he grew up and enjoyed playing football and wrestling. He graduated from Banning High School in 1957. He was known as “Billy” to his friends and was quite the handsome young man.

He married his sweetheart, Barbara Jones on September 5th, 1959 and they were later sealed for time and all eternity in the LDS Los Angeles Temple on January 20, 1962. They were blessed with 3 beautiful daughters.

Bill was in the Army reserves for 8 years and was honorably discharged in 1964. He was proud to serve his country and even in his recent years could still be seen wearing head to toe, Red, White and Blue. After his time in the reserves he became a lineman for Metropolitan Water District until an accident falling from a telephone pole forced him to switch his career. He then became an electrician by trade and lived and worked in multiple plants for Metropolitan Water District until he eventually moved his family to Parker Dam, California where his 3 daughters grew up. They moved to Gilbert, Arizona in 1978 where he started his own electrical sub-contracting business, KSC Electric, named after his 3 daughters. He was proud of his business and loved being called “Mr. Bill” by his employees.

As a result of the bad economy that affected housing in 1990, he moved and his wife moved back to California where he returned to working for Metropolitan Water District. He worked there until his retirement in 2005. After retiring he then moved him and his wife back to Arizona to be closer to their daughters and grandchildren. They bought a home in Queen Creek, Arizona where they still resided at the time of his passing.  He couldn’t sit still and stay retired long so shortly after moving back to Arizona he started a home inspection company, “B” Informed, with his son in law, Kenny.

He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2016 and fought it bravely and was in remission up until he was unfortunately diagnosed again in October of 2023. He was determined to fight it again, but Our Father in Heaven had other plans for him.

One of his greatest pleasures in life was serving people. He loved being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He had a special place in his heart for scouting and loved being a scout leader. He was always Mr. Social, and was known for his goofy sense of humor. He truly never met a stranger. Many times when he would meet someone new, especially little kids, you’d find him talking to them in his famous Donald Duck voice. His grandkids especially loved when he talked to them in that voice!

Bill is survived by his beautiful wife of 64 years, Barbara, daughters Kellie, Susan (Alan), and Cherie (Kenny). His brothers, Jim (Marlene), David (Sharon), John (Reenie), Brenda, and James (Phyllis). Preceded in death by his parents, William and Berneice Fisher, step father Swede Larsen, his brothers, Richard and David, his grandson, Joshua and great-grandson, Zane.

He took great pride in being a grandpa to David, Joshua, Logan (Shari), Chelynne (Jayson), Clarke (Mary Hannah), Alyssa, Brittani (Andrew), Preston (Melissa), April, Hunter, and Tate. Great-grandchildren, Gauge, Myla, Zane, Ivan, James, Elaina Rose, Liam, Ty, Parker, Ethan, Bennie, Adriana, Destiny, Stefanie, Ricky, and Turner.

Please join us in celebrating his wonderful life. His memorial service will be held at the LDS Church house on 33794 N. Gary Road. Queen Creek, Az 85242 on Saturday January 6th, at 11am. All are welcome.

Our hearts may be broken but we are so grateful for so many treasured memories and we know we will see him again. Families are Forever.
