Lyman Fisher


Lyman Stewart Fisher, 69, of Winder, Ga., took his final flight home on Jan. 13, 2021.

A native of Jackson County, N.C., he was the son of the late Leighton Stewart Fisher and Doris Hoyle Fisher. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, disaster relief/mission work, golfing, fishing, camping and the love of anything aviation. His sense of humor, love of laughter, joking and friendship will be greatly missed.

Lyman is survived by his wife of 47 years, Linda Fisher; son Jason (Tamara) Fisher of Sylva; daughter Jill (Brandon) Elders of Sylva; brother, Hayes (Sue) Fisher of Waynesville; sister Linda (Brian) Stephens of Sylva; grandchildren Peyton, Jaxon and Lily Fisher, Brett and Jake Elders; mother-in-law, Jean Frady; and brother-in-law Randy Frady of Tuckasegee; and nephew Clint Stephens of Sylva.

The family will receive friends by way of a drive-thru at Lovedale Baptist Church, Sylva, N.C., on Jan. 22, 2021, from 4-6 p.m.

A celebration of life will be held at First Baptist Church in Winder, Ga., at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to NC Baptist Men – Disaster Relief, P.O. Box 1107, Cary, NC 27512.
