Billie Dean “Bill” Fisher, 87, of Bethany, Missouri formerly of Maryville, Missouri passed away on Saturday, August 8, 2020 at the Harrison County Community Hospital.

Bill was born on August 15, 1932 in Lincoln, Nebraska to Willie and Hazel Katheryn (Weir) Fisher. He was a graduate of the College View High School in Lincoln, Nebraska. He served in the Korean War and was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation, Korean Service Medal with two Battle Stars, and the UN Service Medal.

He started a glass company with his business partner in Beatrice, Nebraska in 1966 and expanded that business to Maryville, Missouri with the purchase of Maryville Glass in 1977. In 1985 his partnership with Larry McKee (a Nodaway County native) ended. He continued to operate what became Maryville Glass and Lock until his retirement in 1999, selling the business to his son, Greg Fisher.

He married Janice Pettit on May 2, 1999 in Gallatin, Missouri. She survives of the home.

During retirement, Bill and Janice enjoyed travelling all over the United States for nine years in their motorhome.

Beginning in the mid-1960s thru the early 1990s Bill was an avid dog trainer, breeder and field trialer. He was an active member of the Vizsla Club of America for over twenty five years many of those years spent serving on the board of directors. He traveled extensively nationwide participating in and later judging field trials for many pointing breeds but his love was always his “red dogs”.

He was a member of the VFW, Masons and the American Legion.

On May 27th, 1956 Bill married Patricia Farr in Lincoln, Nebraska, they had two children; son Gregory (Kathy), Maryville and daughter Holly Jo, Atlanta, Georgia.

Additional survivors include: sister, Wilma Uden, Hastings, Nebraska; four step-children, Terri (Charlie) Wells, Bethany, Missouri, Tammy (Greg) Stevens, Bethany, Missouri, Toni (John) Peck, Waterloo, Iowa and Bill (Kathy) Wright, Fairhope, Alabama; two grandsons, William (Jodi Throckmorton) Fisher, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Henry (Jackie Anderson) Fisher, Maryville, Missouri; granddaughter, Gigi Fisher, Atlanta, Georgia; seven step-grandchildren; twenty-three great-grandchildren; two brothers-in-law; and one sister-in-law.

He was preceded in death by his parents, three brothers, two sisters-in-law, and four brothers-in-law.

Bill was a good friend and business associate for many years. He always had a smile and a good story. I doubt that he ever met a stranger because he could break the ice in under a minute. I loved hunting over his red dogs. They were such a joy to watch work the field you didn’t really care if you shot your gun or not. He said he did it to reward the dogs. Rest well old friend.
