FISHER Eugene A.,  passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving wife and children. He was born in South Whitehall, PA.  Gene enlisted in the US Army and proudly served his country with distinction in the Korean War, receiving the Korean Service Medal, National Defense Medal, United Nations Service Medal and three bronze stars.  He is survived by his devoted wife Vonnie; daughters, Marie Zagaglia and Patricia Staricek; grandchildren, Mark Sewell, Steven Sanders and Jennifer Sanders; brother, John Fisher; and his sister Kathi Angeli.  Gene retired from Pan American Airways where he worked as an aircraft mechanic at Miami International Airport.  He later moved from Miami Springs to Port Orange.  His favorite sport was fishing.  He spent many years reeling in snook, tarpon, red fish and bone fish while fishing the waters of South and Central Florida.  He also enjoyed bowling, gardening and volunteering at the Port Orange VFW and Hospice. A Memorial Service for Gene will be held at the Hospice Center of Port Orange, 3800 Woodbriar Trail on Saturday, January 7 at 2 PM.  In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Marine Corps League, Det. # 658, 3788 Maple Grove Court,  Port Orange, 32129. Gene’s joy of life, love of nature and his willingness to lend a helping hand will be missed by the many lives that he touched.

    To my Wonderful Dad,
    A girl could not ask for a better Father in her life. You were the only person who ever loved me unconditionally. I don't know what my life will be like without you. No fishing trip will ever be the same again. I know that you are in a better place with our Lord and catching big ones everyday now! Until we are together again, you will always be in my heart.
    Your Baby Girl, Patty

    To my beloved husband Gene,
    We had a wonderful life together. We traveled the world and did amazing things. You taught me to fish and took me all over the country on fabulous adventures. The happiest years of my life were spent with you. Although your body is gone your unconditional love and your spirit will remain with me always.

    Your loving wife for all eternity.
