Gerald Lee Fisher

Gerald “Jerry” Lee Fisher, 72, of Watson Branch, Cullowhee, passed away Thursday, April 22, 2021 at his home surrounded by his family and loved ones after a long illness. He was born January 6, 1949 in Macon County and was the youngest of nine children born to the late Robert H. and Margaret Mills Fisher, and was the husband of Linda June Watson who preceded him in death in 2018.

He is survived by his children, Jerry Dale (Misty) Fisher, Lisa (Richard McElroy) Fisher and Robert (Chantel) Fisher; grandchildren Michael Woodring, Hanna, Mason, Zeb, Krissy and Ryker Fisher, Josh Woodring and Paris Mayol. He was also survived by one sister, Ruby Evans.

Besides his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by his siblings, William “Bill” Fisher, Lewis Fisher, Ben “Ray” Fisher, Berlin Fisher, Dorothy Brittingham, Ethel Meadows, and Mildred Cloer.

He was a Veteran of the U.S. Army and served in Vietnam. He loved spending time with his family and loafering. He also loved relaxing at the houseboat (and by "relaxing" we mean working on every project he could get his hands on), fishing, hunting, gardening, and piddling.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 1 at Noon at the Unity Baptist Church in the Wayehutta Community. The family will receive visitors after the service at a potluck meal in the Wayehutta Community Building.
