Roger H. Fischer Sr.

Jul 04, 1932 - Mar 26, 2020


Roger H. Fischer Sr. 87 of 602 N 14th Street in Sheboygan passed away at home with his family at his side on Thursday March 26, 2020. He was born on July 4, 1932 in Sheboygan Wisconsin to David and Elizabeth (Rossell) Fischer. Roger graduated from Harvard High School in 1952. He was drafted into the Army on Jan. 7, 1953. He was stationed in Korea till he was honorably discharged in December 1954. He was united in marriage to his best friend and the love of his life Sandra J. Zelko on September 22, 1956 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Sheboygan where he has been a member ever since.
Roger had exceptional American work ethic; he wouldn’t hesitate to put in the work for his family or what he believed in. This was exemplified through his work history from farming as a kid, to returning from the service to work at Park and Shop, then crafting chairs at a furniture company, while spending his evenings helping out at the Stardust outdoor theatre, and finally found his niche working for the Sheboygan Area School District until he retired.
Roger enjoyed all sports. He coached his children, grandchildren and many other family members and friends in softball. He was known by everybody as Pops. He was the biggest fan of all the softball teams. You would see him many summer evenings at the ballpark. He enjoyed going to Packers, Brewers, Wisconsin, and Bucks games.
He was a movie buff and his collection equaled that of any video store. The video store even referred customers to Roger when they didn’t have an old movie the customer was looking for. In fact, he spent many hours coordinating his free movie lending service to ensure any who wanted to take part could. He loved sharing the happiness he got from the movies with others.
He enjoyed swimming and hiking with his family. They shared many family trips and Sunday drives. He was always there to give anybody a ride. It could be anytime night or day no matter how close or far he had to go.
Roger was survived by his wife Sandy of 63 years, 6 children, 21 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great grandchild.

It was a pleasure to be involved in the care of Roger and Sandra for many years. His family was always his most important possession. I retired from Aurora in Feb. and am returning for temporary work in nursing homes April 6.

Always smiling, always helping others. We will miss you but know we will see you again in Heaven. Our prayers for comfort go out to Aunt Sandy and all of the family. And love to you all, Jim & Cheryl

Kathy Miller

We wish to extend our heartfelt sympathy to aunt Sandy and her entire extended family. How well I remember long conversations between uncle Roger and my mom about the movie industry. It's a passion they had in common and one that I also share. There is nothing more entertaining than watching a black and white movie from the 30's, 40's or 50's. Loss is always difficult but must be even more so in the midst of the crisis we are all facing in the world today. I pray that you find comfort in family and faith and in knowing that Roger can once again share his love of movies with all of his siblings. God Bless!

Gary & Vickie Gephart
