OTEGO – With deep sorrow we share the passing of Gary Thomas Fisher, 60, of Otego.
Gary passed with his loving family by his side Sept. 4, 2019. Gary is now reunited with his son, Kyle Faulkner; parents, Thomas and Eleanor Fisher; and beloved dog, Spyke.
Gary was well-known for the love of his boys, grandchildren and friends.
Gary could be seen around town in his Chevy Blazer with lawn mower in tow, off to his next client to do landscaping for them. He was very meticulous about his work. Gary was known for his handyman skills and the saying, “There isn’t anything Gary can’t do or fix.”
He loved sitting around with friends playing cards, foosball and listening to classic rock. He enjoyed classic cars. He was known as a “Motörhead” from working on cars in the garage with his boys, tinkering with stereos and working with glass. He enjoyed the Walton fair each year, especially the demolition derbies.
Gary loved life and always had a big smile to greet everyone.
