Obituary

Ernest Franklin “Ernie” Fisher, 96, of Palatka, passed away on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at Haven Hospice Roberts Care Center following an extended illness. Born in Spencer, West Virginia, Ernie attended high school in Steubenville, Ohio through the 11th grade, then worked as an electric bridge crane operator with Republic Steel in Canton, Ohio. In 1942, he was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served admirably as a surgical technician in World War II campaigns in Central Europe including “Rhineland” and “Ardennes”, what you may know as “The Battle of the Bulge”, popularized by the recent mini-series “Band of Brothers”. It was during this single action that U.S. forces sustained over 100,000 casualties, more than any Army campaign in U.S. history. Following his military service, Ernie worked as a carpenter with local #182 and #26 for over 50 years. Ernie was also a pilot and enjoyed flying his plane as well as building ultra-lite aircraft. In his leisure time, he also enjoyed playing golf. Ernie attended the College Road Church of Christ.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 23 years, Ida M. Traxler Fisher, his parents, Lincoln Fisher and Minnie Yerian Fisher, a brother, Kenneth Fisher and 2 sisters, Opal Cochran and Maxine Story.
Ernie is survived by 3 stepchildren, Rena Dennard of Palatka, Judy Remington (Theron) of Ocala and John Traxler (Jackie) of Palatka, 5 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren and 2 nieces, Donna Sembar (George) of Danville, IL and Kim Weaver of Follansbee, WV.
Services will be at 2:00 P.M. Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at Johnson-Overturf Chapel in Palatka with Bro. C.L. Overturf, Jr. officiating. The family will receive friends Wednesday from 1:00 P.M. until the time of services at 2:00 P.M. Interment will follow at Palatka Memorial Gardens with military honors conducted by the U.S. Army.
Memories and condolences may be expressed to the family at Ernie’s Book of Memories page at www.johnsonoverturffunerals.com.
Arrangements are entrusted to Johnson-Overturf Funeral Home in Palatka.
