Rodney Fisher

Obituary of Rodney Lee Fisher

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our son, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin and friend to so many. Rodney Lee Fisher, known to his friends as “Fish”, 59, of Prince Albert, SK, passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of Monday May 27th in Prince Albert.

Rod was born in Rosthern, SK to Warren (late) and Emilie Fisher on May 8th, 1965. He attended school in Duck Lake, SK. Growing up on the farm, this is where he developed his love for horses. As a kid he used to ride his horse Spots around town doing errands for his Grandma and others. When he was young, he spent a lot of time as a jockey at all the local Sports Days in Duck Lake and the surrounding communities. Rod left home at a very young age and went to work in Alberta where he spent many years working in the construction field. It was during this time that he became a father and had one daughter named Megan. As a new dad, Rod spent all of his time taking care and doting on his new baby and was very proud of her and often sent pictures home to his family in Saskatchewan. Eventually, Rod returned home to Saskatchewan after many years away and settled in Prince Albert. He began working at Flaminio’s Ceiling and Wall Systems and continued working off and on there for the last several years. Rod spoke very highly of the Flaminio family and was most appreciative to Faye Flaminio who was like a second mom to him.

If you knew Rod then you knew that he was certainly a free spirit and lived life according to his own rules. He always had a joke to tell and was often laughing while telling stories to those around him. He loved incessantly and would help anyone out when they needed a hand.  Rod, although a free spirit, called his Mom regularly to check in and to tell her he loved her. Although he was the tough guy, he was always able to tell those close to him that he loved them and missed them. Rod was a hard worker, and grew up knowing that you needed to do a job or task the right way the first time. He was good at the work he did and could be counted on for a job well done. Again, he liked to live according to his own timeline which didn’t always line up with others, but he never minded too much. To those lucky to be in Rod’s inner circle, you knew you were important to him and what mattered to him.

He is survived by his daughter Megan Walker and her children Faylen, Cael, and Attreus; his mother Emilie Fisher; siblings Louella Fisher (Dale Baldhead), Kimberly Halcro (Derril Halcro), Shauna Doering, and Wade Fisher (Nancy Stein); his nieces and nephews and of course all his many friends that he made throughout his life’s journey.

Rod was predeceased by his father Warren Fisher; maternal and paternal grandparents, several uncles and aunts.

Funeral Service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, June 3, 2024, at St. Micheals Parish, 1505 13 St W, Prince Albert, SK.  Lunch to follow in the church hall.  Those wishing to make donations may do so in Rod’s name to the Mental Health and Addictions Council, 334 – 19th St East, Prince Albert, SK S6V 1J7.

We do not know the beginning and we do not know the end, so let us take today as if it’s our first and last day together and there is nothing so important as the connection, we have to one another and the joy we may find in sharing a laugh, a meal, or a quiet moment reflecting with each other.

Family and friends wishing to send online condolences are welcome to visit  Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Beau “Lac” Funeral Home and Crematorium, Marianne Turcotte, Funeral Director, Prince Albert, SK 306-763-3322.
