He is now reunited with his late wife, Joan, in the loving arms of Jesus Christ for eternity. A service celebrating C.L.'s life and his faith will be at 2 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 9, at Western Heights Baptist Church, 6301 Bosque Blvd., Waco, with the Rev. Kip Osborne and Mr. Charles Thornal participating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to service. Burial will follow at Mexia City Cemetery in Mexia.Mr. Fisher was legendary in the automobile business in Waco and surrounding communities for over 55 years, selling 'thousands and thousands' of cars to multiple generations of families and friends. Although that was a great source of pride, his greatest pleasure came from raising his three children and being involved in their activities and sports, coaching several championship baseball teams. Some might say that he is legendary for his participation in that effort as well.He was most at ease when gathered with the family in the playroom, listening and playing the piano and guitar with grandkids, nieces, and nephews. Those were the days!He was a veteran of the Korean War, being stationed at Yokota AFB in Japan. Not much for long conversation, he said little about that time of his life. However, he was encouraged when President Trump spoke from that airbase just this past Saturday. President Trump's comments regarding our military efforts during that war gave Mr. Fisher cause to note that 'he is the first President to acknowledge what we did in order to save the South Korean people from a communist dictatorship.' It lifted his spirits to have our President make that acknowledgement. He was steadfast in his support of our military and law enforcement members.Mr. Fisher was preceded in death by his wife, Joan; his parents, Floyd and Florence Fisher; two brothers, Floyd Jr., and Harold; and sister, Geraldine HallHe is survived by a sister, Effie Tilghman; son, Mike Fisher and wife, Rachel; daughter, Lori Richardson and husband, Bret; son, Paul Comer; five grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; along with numerous nieces and nephews.Thoughts and memories may be shared online at www.LakeShoreFH.com.Sign the Guest Book at www.wacotrib.com
