Oct. 18, 1942 - May 21, 2017
Joe Russell Fisher, age 74, of Seneca, Mo., went to be with the Lord on May 21, 2017 after a hard fought battle with congestive heart failure. Joe Fisher was born October 18, 1942, to the late Russell and Emma (Sinnard) Fisher, in Webb City, Mo., and was a longtime resident of Webb City.
On May 24, 1973, Joe married Rose (Rainey) Green, in Webb City. They spent the rest of their lives raising their family at their residence in Seneca.
Joe enjoyed laughter, good company and the farm life. Joe took great pride in his farm and commercial cattle operation. He always had a smile on his face and words of wisdom or encouragement, but above all else he loved his family more than anything. Joe was also a past Master Mason of Fellowship Lodge 345.
Joe is survived by children, Rusty Fisher and wife, LaHeather, of Carthage, Randy Green and wife, Laura, of Seneca, Robby Fisher, of Carthage, Libby Downing, of Carthage, and Taylor Hopper and husband, Tommy, of Grand Lake Towne, Okla.; one sister, Janie Roark, of Seneca; 12 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; as well as many extended family members. In addition to his parents, Joe was preceded in death by his loving wife, Rose; two sons, Rodney and David Green; and sister, Jean Anne (Fisher) Sheets.
A memorial service is planned for 6 p.m. Thursday, May 25, at the Seneca Christian Church. Doug Lawson, minister, will be officiating.
