February 6, 1948 - April 30, 2022
Herman E. Fischer Jr., 74, of Muncy, died Saturday, April 30, 2022, at UPMC Muncy Place. Born February 6, 1948, in Muncy, he was a son of the late Herman E. and Evelyn M. (Printzenhoff) Fischer Sr. He married Susan E. Burke on August 5, 1967. He was predeceased by his wife, Susan E. Burke on March 14, 2015. Herman was known to all of his family and many of his friends as "Pug." His interests, hobbies, and knowledge about almost everything was never ending, and he never hesitated to share any and all of it with the world, if asked. There were very few topics that would come up in a conversation with him that he wasn`t able to add to with his knowledge. His wit and sense of humor were two things that he continued to hold onto throughout his life. He found the silver linings in situations and continued to smile. Herman loved to try new foods, and never hesitated to travel miles in a day to find the "not yet tried" snack. He had a strong love for the many pets he had throughout his life. He also loved nature and enjoyed hours in the sun admiring the gardens he and Sue created. These gardens continue to live on in the many photos he took and shared. He had an amazing memory and never ceased to pull details out of it to help a friend or family member complete a story. He also created many beautiful pieces from stained glass as well as wood. His years in the United States Navy and his tours in Vietnam left him with many friendships that he continued to embrace throughout the rest of his life. When his muscle disease took over most of his body, he still managed to find a way to be able to use his computer to continue communication with these friends and his family as well as his love of reading, playing games, putting puzzles together, and delving into family genealogy. He lived a full life and will be dearly missed by all those who knew him. Surviving is a daughter, Michelle M. (Steve) Walters of Muncy; two sisters, Frances A. (Milford) Snyder of Hughesville, and Betty M. (Terry) Fortna of Ballston Spa, N.Y.; a brother, John E. (Michelle) Fischer of Hughesville; a grandson, Eric M. Walters; and several nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Herman was preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, the former Susan E. Burke; and an infant daughter, Baby Girl Fischer. Funeral services will be held at the convenience of the family. Arrangements have been entrusted to McCarty-Thomas Funeral Home, Hughesville.
