Loren W. Fisher’s life began in Adamsville, Mich., on Aug. 19, 1926.
He attended White Pigeon schools and graduated with the class of 1945. He was very proud of his military service serving his country in the U.S. Army in World War II, and his lifetime membership in the American Legion.
On June 3, 1950, he married Marjorie Day in Constantine. He and Marjorie had two children, LuAnn Fisher Seely of Sturgis and David Fisher of Three Rivers.
Loren began working for the United States Postal Service in 1948, where he worked as a clerk and later as a rural mail carrier until retiring in 1981. He later enjoyed years of farming and co-owning Dave’s Marine Center in both Constantine and Three Rivers.
Twenty-five years were spent with Marjorie wintering in Florida and summering on Long Lake.
His three grandchildren, Analyse Seely, Thomas and Meagan Fisher, and one great-grandson, Carter, gave him much joy. Loren’s family also included several nieces and nephews. He was happiest outside hunting, fishing, and cutting wood.
Loren died at Rose Arbor Hospice in Kalamazoo on Aug. 12, 2009, after a very brief three-week illness. His parents, Lewis and Emma (Lee) Fisher, a brother, and two sisters preceded him in death.
According to his wishes, cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
