It is with deep sorrow we share the passing of Gary Thomas Fisher, 60, of Otego, NY. Gary passed with his loving family by his side on September 4, 2019. He is now reunited with his son Kyle Faulkner; parents Thomas and Eleanor Fisher and his beloved dog Spyke dog.
Gary was well known for the love of his boys, grandchildren and friends. He leaves behind his loving sons Nicholas and Justin Fisher of Otego; grandchildren McKenna and Nicholai; faithful dog Turbo; his significant other Michelle Zimmerman; sisters Tammy (Brian) Gardepe of Myrtle Beach, Brenda MacDonald of Walton; brothers Brian of Oneonta and Timothy (Lori) of Davenport; Phillip Young, who Gary considered a son and cousin Frank (Suzie) Fisher of Oneonta whom he thought of as a brother. Gary is also survived by several nieces, nephews, cousins, great friend Kim (John) Hendricks and many extended friends and family.
Gary could be seen around town with his Chevy blazer tractor in tow, off to his next client to do landscaping for them; he was very meticulous with his work. Gary was known for his handyman skills, the saying was “there’s nothing that Gary can’t do or fix”. He loved sitting around with friend’s playing cards, foosball and listening to classic rock. He enjoyed classic cars. Gary was known as a “motor head”, working on cars in his garage with his boys, tinkering with stereos and working with glass. He enjoyed the Walton Fair each year especially the demolition derbies. Gary loved life and always had a big smile to greet everyone.
Burial and a celebration of Gary’s life will be held at the convenience of the family.
