Dick was born on November 24, 1943 in Pennsylvania to Hubert and Rosalind Fisher.
He was a graduate of Meadville High School who also attended Pittsburgh University after serving honorably in the United States Army.
He was known to many as adventurous who also had a keen eye for details. His passion for capturing the “thrill” spilled over to his many hobbies as a single engine airline pilot, constructor of experimental airplanes, golfer, photographer and as a hot air balloon enthusiast.
Dick was a caring and highly motivated person with a strong work ethic who dedicated more than 50 years to the gas and oil industry, with much of his career spent as a CEO.
Dick is survived by loving family members including his wife of 47 years, Lorrie; sister, Patricia; brother, Doug; son, Scott; daughters, Lindy and Shelley; as well as six grandchildren that he absolutely adored.
