 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Following his retirement from the Air Force General Fisher was hired as President of the Grand Bahama Development Company at Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas. He and his wife Dorothy built a beautiful home on a golf course there where they lived at 4 Hampstead Rd for almost 30 years. He left the Development Company after 5 years and became a successful entrepreneur and a member of the Bahamas National Golf Team. He enjoyed traveling internationally playing in many golf tournaments.

He died there in 1991 at 79 years of age and was cremated. His ashes were spread from a low flying aircraft along the fairway of the 17th hole at the Lucayan Golf and Country Club just behind his home.

He was survived by his wife, Dorothy and his two adult children, W. Douglas Fisher of Bethesda, MD, and Ann Fisher of Coral Gables, FL, and four grandchildren.
