DOUGLAS BRADFORD FISH, 64, of Orlando, Florida, passed away on April 30, 2022, at the AdventHealth Hospice in Altamonte Springs following an extended illness. He is now an angel in heaven. He was born in Miami, Florida on July 22, 1957, to Muriel and Anthony Fish.  Douglas moved to Orlando, Florida in the late 1990’s, and made it his home with his life partner, Richard Brady. Douglas loved to make people laugh and always “found the funny” in any situation.  He spent his life helping people and worked at Baptist Hospital in Miami for approximately 30 years.  He volunteered his time helping and supporting AIDS and cancer patients and the homeless.  Douglas was also an interior designer and a web designer. Even in his last days, he was planning and designing his room.  Douglas loved animals, music, entertainment, and travel. 

He was preceded in death by his parents, Muriel and Anthony Fish, and his life-long partner, Richard Brady.  He is survived by his sisters, Toni-Jean Fish of Miami, Florida, Lori-Jay Iturriaga (Manny) of Miami, Florida, Jodi-Lee Sayeg (Randy) of Macon, Georgia, Jeri-Sue Moffitt (Jim) of Lake City, Florida, and Judy Fish-Grassi (Jim) of Sarasota, Florida; and his nieces and nephews, Robert Gonzalez, Heather Gonzalez, Michael Lundstrom, Shane Heyder, Kristin Heyder, Brittany Heyder, Robert Sahland, Rex Saip, AJ Saip, Kevin Saip, Douglas Sayeg, James Moffitt, Jr. and Christopher Moffitt.

A celebration of life will be held at Christ Fellowship Chapel, 8900 SW 168th Street, Palmetto Bay, Florida, on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at 11:00 a.m.

    “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could
    say, "I used everything you gave me'.
    Erma Bombeck

    … One of your favorite people.

    You certainly had A LOT OF TALENT and helped so many people throughout your life, literally up until you no longer could. That is what I’ll remember most … and your sense of humor of course.

    I love you, Doug.

    Missing you so much Dougie. Our long talks, and laughs! The look on your face when I walked into the room “ My adopted sister” you would say! The raised eyebrow and gleam in your eye when a “joke” was coming. Your contagious laugh! So much I miss about you. I can barely write this through the tears. You’re always going to be my baby brother. I will always love you. Until we see each other again…kisses

    We never got to wear our hazmat suits to Publix and yell at people to stay 6 feet away!
    You always tried to find the funny, all the way to the end.
    Rest in the arms of those who loved you and passed before you...Richard, your mom...
    You will be missed.

    My Brother my friend all through our lives !
    As young children we clung to each other for comfort in troubled times as we did as we grew older.
    He was a jokester a funny guy always looking for a way to laugh in the hardest situations.
    I think that will stick with me in front of all the other attributes.
    I so loved him and will always carry him with me.
    My brother my friend
    Love you always

    Douglas “Dougie” was a really special part of my life…He lost his partner at about the same time I did and we were both VERY instrumental in helping each other to heal from the grief of losing someone so dear, who becomes a part of who you are.
    Doug became the biggest part of my heart…We talked every single day, for two years and had plans to spend the last of our days together but, God had different plans…
    It’s really strange for me but, I am glad that he is finally with Richard, who was the love of his life, for 42 years…
    I feel like I can say this, wholeheartedly….
    I Love You both and I am glad that you will spend Eternity together, in PERFECT LOVE and INFINITE LIGHT….
    You will always be the biggest part of my heart…

    Eternal Unconditional Love and Light to You, Dougie…I Will Always Love You…✨
    Rest in blissful peace.

    Yours Always, Bobby.
