A memorial service will take place Sunday, August 20 at 3 p.m. at the Kingston Apostolic Lutheran Church, preceded by visitation at 1 p.m.
Robert was born Aug. 5, 1932, in Maine Prairie Township, to John and Millie (Heise) Fischer.
He was baptized and confirmed at the Fairhaven Lutheran Church in Fairhaven, MN, and continued his faith as a member of the Kingston Apostolic Lutheran Church.
Bob went to Annandale High School, where he played football, and graduated in 1950.
He married Carol Huro March 3, 1951, during a snow-storm, and they were happily married for 66 years.
Bob and Carol lived in the Minneapolis area for 40 years, before returning to the Kingston area.
Bob worked for Leaf Brother’s for 38 years, before retiring. In his free time, he enjoyed hunting, fishing, bird watching, and traveling; he was a crossword puzzle enthusiast, and enjoyed spending time with his therapy cat, Saydi. More than anything though, Bob loved getting together with family and friends, telling stories and listening to stories from his loved ones.
A patient and very loving man, Bob will be greatly missed by friends and family.
He is survived by his loving wife, Carol; five children, Dennis (Jamie) Fischer of Annandale, Jeffery Fischer of Kingston, Sarah Fischer of Dassel, Jerry Fischer of New Hope, and Tom (Sara) Fischer of Prior Lake; 13 grandchildren, Kerry, Erik (Kayla), Paul, Jesse (Sarah), Dylan (Hannah), Rory (Susan), Kelly, Kristi, Joe, Tiffany (Tyler), Tracey, Melissa (Kenny), and James; 15 great-grandchildren, Kayla, Emma, George, Dominik, Riley, Felix, Everett, Charlie, Hailey, Amelia, Lola, Morgan, Robert, Dax, and Leah; a brother, Carl Fischer (Bev); sisters-in-law Doris Dorman, and Gina Shaaf; and many nieces and nephews.
Bob was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Bill; Bill’s wife, Verna; daughter-in-law Sherrie; grandson Jake; brothers-in-law Gerald Huro, Russel Huro, Kenneth Dorman, and Robert Schaaf; and nephews John Fischer, Dean Dorman, and Benjamin Schaaf.
