Wayne L. Fisher, Sr., 68, of Slidell, LA, passed away on Tuesday, April 19, 2016, in Slidell. Beloved Husband of Kim H. Fisher;
Father of Wayne L. Fisher Jr (Tammy), Christopher T. Fisher (Amanda), Jonathan M. Fisher, and Amanda F. Rigsby (Dustin);
Son of the late George and Phyllis Fisher;
Brother of George W. Fisher Jr.;
Also survived by four grandchildren: Cameron Fisher, Christian Fisher, Alexis Baldassaro, and Conner Fisher.
A native of Charleston, South Carolina and a resident of Slidell since 1981.
Graduate of The Citadel in South Carolina, Wayne served in the US Army during his tours in Vietnam. In civilian life he volunteered as a fireman and served with the St. Tammany and Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Offices. While he was distinguished pilot with over 18,000 hours of flying time, Wayne’s true passion was serving Jesus Christ through his local church. He recognized that he was not promised tomorrow and chose to spend as much time as possible sharing with others the news about salvation through Christ’s life, death, and resurrection.
Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the funeral.
Funeral Services will be held at Northshore Church, 310 Kensington Blvd, Slidell LA 70458, on Tuesday, April 26, 2016, at 11:00am.
Friends may visit at the church beginning at 9:00am.
Burial will be in Southeast Louisiana Veterans Cemetery.
Due to the limited number of flowers that may be delivered to the veterans cemetery, the family ask that donations be made in Wayne’s memory to Haven of Hope Africa in care of Ireland Outreach International, Box 1772 Waterloo IA 50705-1772.
