John Nason Fisher

John Nason Fisher died March 22 after a brief battle with cancer in The Villages, Fla. Survived by his parents George and Julie Fisher, sister Holly Baumgartner (Jim) and Ann Wright (Tim). Loving uncle to Casey Wright and Kelly Wright. Friend to many but especially Mike Worrell, his best friend and roommate.
Johnny had a long career with Johnson Controls as a security service technician - a job he was well suited for as he could figure out how anything worked! We relied on his knowledge of everything technology related and will miss being able to call him on a moment's notice.
Playing the guitar was Johnny's safe haven. His lifelong passion for those six strings led to performing in several bands -"Group Therapy" and "Appomattox Courthouse" at Joaquin Moraga Junior High School, with "Passage", "Messenger", "Valence Shell" and most recently "The Space Between" as an adult. "A Space Between" will hold a tribute concert at a later date. All of his tracks were recorded, so the band will be able to play together one last time.
An avid Raider fan, Johnny was glued to the computer to watch the building of the new Raider stadium in Las Vegas. He loved watching NASCAR races and football. One of his favorite apps tracked rocket launches from Cape Canaveral. Anything that had anything to do with water was a longtime passion. He had been on several cruises and lived on a lake. Coupled with his love of flying (he had taken several flying lessons) he often wore a T-Shirt that said "I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning!" But the last shirt he wore was better - "Cruising through life one port at a time."
When Johnny realized the end was near, he said "I'll just check out what's on the other side."
We will miss his funny sense of humor, his quick wit and ... everything about him.
Condolences can be sent to The Fisher Family 856 Folsum Place, The Villages, FL 32162.
Donations can be made to Cornerstone Hospice 601 Casa Bella, The Villages, FL 32162.
