Harry W. Fisher
It is with much sadness that we announce Harry W. Fisher passed away May 11, 2020. He was born April 1, 1926 in Pittsburgh PA - the beloved son of Jacob W. Fisher and Frieda (Hochstein) Fisher of Pittsburgh. After graduation from Westinghouse High School in 1944 he traveled at age 18 to Europe with the 775th Field Artillery Battalion, Third Army, during the Battle of the Bulge. Surviving those years he returned home and earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Tech, graduating in 1950. He courted and married Thelma Meredith, and in 1958 they were thrilled to welcome their son Edward. Harry worked at Rockwell Manufacturing (later Rockwell International) in Pittsburgh for 35 years, thriving on every new engineering challenge, traveling the country, making many friends and patenting numerous developments related to the Oil and Gas Industry. At home he was a loving, devoted husband and father, a Mr. Fix-it of all household problems, and introduced his son to fishing which they treasured doing together as the years went on. He goes now to join his loving parents, his Grandmother Susan and Aunt Marie and others who preceded him. He is survived by Thelma the love of his life for more than 66 years, their son Edward and his wife Kelly, two grandchildren, their spouses, and three great grandchildren; also nieces, nephews, cousins and their families.
