Robert Fischer, age 94, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Sunday afternoon, May 29, 2011. Bob was born in Shawano County on June 18, 1916, son of the late Frank and Laura (Lex) Fischer. In June of 1939 he married Marjorie Servi at St. John's Church in Antigo; she survives. Bob's life revolved around farming – he was a farmer, a milk hauler, and worked for Berg Farm Equipment for a time. He enjoyed getting together with family and friends, camping, making wood, polka music, and Mary's accordion playing. Many will recall the many yard decorations he made from cedar: lawn swings, windmills, and planters. He was a former member of St. Boniface Church in Aniwa where he enjoyed singing in the choir.

Bob is survived by his wife: Marjorie Fischer of Kaukauna; five daughters: Mary (Ronald) Skinner of Kaukauna, Kathryn (Robert) Zimmerman of DePere, Barbara (Lyle) Diedrich of Kaukauna, Lora (Steve) Werth of Kaukauna, and Kristine (Jim) Anthony of Appleton.
