John Thomas Fischer

By | Obituaries

GANSEVOORT — John Thomas Fischer, 59, of Gansevoort, passed away on January 30, bringing his battle with COPD to an end as he was reunited with The Lord.

John was born on August 9, 1954, as the son of John Edward Fischer and Camilla Notargiacomo Fischer in Astoria.

He spent much of his life in the garment industry and other management positions, including his work with the Salvation Army in New York and Massachusetts. John loved to tell stories and to make others laugh. In the final months of his life he often reflected on how much family meant to him, and expressed how thankful he was for the meaningful relationships he’d been able to establish with them.

John is survived by his son and daughter-in-law Charlie and Laura Wilson of Elmira; son, Matthew Fischer of Wilmington, North Carolina; and son and daughter-in-law Justin and Kristy Fischer of Gansevoort; as well as his grandchildren, Joshua, Jeffery  and Adam Wilson, Marcy and Marley Fischer, and Jacob, Kaitlynn, Elijah, and Benjamin Fischer. He is also survived by his mother, Camilla Fischer of Valley Stream, his sister, AnnMarie O’Malley of Valley Stream; his brother, Larry Fischer of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and his sister, Toni Dempsey of Long Beach. John was predeceased by his father, John Edward Fischer.

A memorial service will be held at Pine Knolls Alliance Church (614 Gansevoort Road in South Glens Falls) on February 15 at 3 p.m. with a reception to follow at the church. Please contact the church at (518)793-7101 for more information.

A sincere expression of gratitude is extended from John’s family to all of those from Hospice who cared so lovingly for him over the past 15 months.

Arrangements under the direction of Compassionate Funeral Care.
