Obituary of Douglas Fisher

It is with profound sadness that we have to bid farewell to Douglas Fisher who began his spirit journey on Thursday April 25th, 2024. He will rejoin many childhood friends’ relatives and acquaintance who have already undertaken their journey. Doug worked for a number of years but spent most of his time appreciating life and the people in it.

Loving father of Wahbuhnung Snake and her family, Richard Booker and his family and Barbara French and family.

Fondly remembered by his siblings Merle Fisher, Delbert Riley, Kelly Riley, Donna Forbes (Fisher).

Predeceased by his parents Stanford Riley and Cora Fisher and his siblings Betty Kechego (Fisher), Karen Riley (Fisher), Ernie Riley, Lydia May Riley, Pat Farell (Riley) and Irene Riley.

Special mention is made of Doug’s lifelong friend Gary Snake.

A sacred fire is at 31 Chippewa road and special appreciation to Sheldon Fisher and Scott French for maintaining the sacred fire.  Following Doug’s wishes cremation has occurred. The interment will occur at Colbourne cemetery in the near future with family members.

Miigwetch to Doug’s numerous nieces and nephews who helped out at this time.   

Appreciation to the staff at Chelsea Park Long Term Care Center in London.

Chi-miigwetch to Austin Henry, Kyle French, Steve Sturgeon, and their apprentice for setting up the tipi for the 4 day sacred fire.  

Many miigwetch’s to the Chippewa Band Office staff for their assistance at that time.
