Wallace Fisher

Wallace "Wally" Whitman Fisher, of Riverview NB, passed away peacefully at The Moncton Hospital on November 28, 2022. Born in Brookfield NS, he was the son of the late Stanley and Gladys (Power) Fisher.

Wally worked for many years with CNR and Via Rail, both in Halifax NS and Moncton NB. He grew up in Brookfield NS and was very active in playing hockey and softball for the Brookfield Elks. He enjoyed wintering in Florida, salmon fishing on the Miramichi River, playing golf, and especially enjoyed spending time at the cottage in McKees Mills. He was very handy and could build or fix almost anything. He was a wonderful husband, father, brother, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend, and made a positive contribution to the lives of many. 

Wally is survived by his son Ross (Ann) Fisher of Moncton, daughters Janet (Mike) Farrell of Pollett River NB, and Beth Robichaud of Riverview NB; grandchildren Andrew Farrell, Nick (Trisha) Farrell, Michael Fisher, Dawn (Troy) Butler, Scott (Bonnie) Fisher, Thomas (Ashley) Robichaud, and Samantha (Andrew) Corkum; great-grandchildren Logan, Macey, Cash, Carter, Paige, Emily, William, Reegan, Frankie, Freddie, Evelyn, Ari, and Lilianna. He is also survived by brothers-in-law Everard "Eb" Kent of St. Catharines, ON, and Stephen Jefferson of Halifax NS; and sisters-in-law Janet Kent of Lower Truro NS, and Glenda Kent of Lower Truro NS, and many nieces and nephews.

Aside from Wally’s parents, he was predeceased by his wife of 67 years Mary (Kent) Fisher in 2019; sisters Ada Fisher, and Mabel Gallin; brother Aubrey Fisher, son-in-law Joseph Robichaud, sisters-in-law Katie Jefferson, and Elaine Kent; and brothers-in-law John Kent, and Jimmy Kent.

As per Wally’s wishes cremation has taken place with a family graveside to take place in Alderwood Cemetery at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd. Riverview (869-2007)
