Frank E. Fischer of New Haven died on Thursday June 27, 2019 following a brief illness.
He was born and raised in Scriba, New York and graduated high school from the Oswego Normal School.
He married his love, Patricia (Martin) Fischer, in 1955. They were married for 64 years before her passing this past April. Together, they raised their family in New Haven, New York.
Frank served in the Army National Guard for four years in Co D 1-108th Infantry. He joined the Carpenter’s Local 747 in 1964 and was a proud member of the Carpenters Union for more than 54 years. He was very pleased to drive around the area and point out all the projects and buildings he was part of creating.
Frank loved hunting and fishing. He enjoyed camping and wood working. His passion however, was Volkswagen’s. If it was a Volkswagen, he could fix it. People traveled from across the country to have him fix their precious Volkswagen’s.
He is survived by his children Edward and Anita, Richard and Debbie, Kenneth, Paul and Linda, and his daughter-in-law Michelle Connolly; his brothers and sisters-in-law, John and Jean Martin and Larry and Ruth Martin; his grandchildren Luke, Christopher, Khristian, Daniel, Maxwell, Morgan, and Caleb; his great-grandson Jake; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
