He was born on Sunday, August 19, 1934 in Higginsville, and was the son of the late Everett Fisher and the late Rose (Kuchinski) Fisher. Kenneth left school early to help his father farm their 80 acres. He proudly served his country in the United States Army stationed in Germany. Kenneth married Doris (Piepmeier) Fisher on October 16, 1959. Doris preceded him in death on November 3, 2015, and they were married 56 years.

Kenneth worked as a trim carpenter and was very talented at his work. Kenneth had severe allergies, so they moved to Arizona for relief and lived there for 32 years. They moved back to Higginsville in 2015 to be closer to family when Doris became ill.

Kenneth’s passion in life was carpentry and woodworking. He loved building things so much that he always had a project he was working on. In his life, he built his own boat, go-carts for himself and his brother, wooden model tractors, and a grandfather clock. He built his own home and even his brother’s home. When Kenneth wasn’t in his shop working, he enjoyed camping and traveling, fishing, and spending time with family. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Surviving are one son, Brian (Laurie) Fisher of Heber, AZ; one brother, Wayne (Trudy) Fisher of Higginsville; two grandchildren, Nathan Fisher and Daniel Fisher.
