Obituary

Anthony “Tony” Fischer, age 68, of Neenah, passed away peacefully with family at his side, on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Tony was born on November 14, 1953 in Mobridge, South Dakota, son of the late Peter and Lucille (Heib) Fischer. He married the love of his life, Patricia Lessor on July 26, 1980. Tony retired from Westrock after 44 years of employment. He was a hardworking man who instilled a great work ethic in his children, always carrying with him the attitude “why put off tomorrow what you can get done today.” Tony enjoyed taking long walks, collecting rocks along the way, and meticulously manicuring his lawn. Some of the best years of Tony’s life were spent on his houseboat in what became a home away from home. The friendships and connections made during these years at the Party Doll Marina were deeply cherished by Tony.

In addition to his wife Patsy, Tony is survived by his children: Joseph (Lori) Lund, Tim (Laura) Lund, Lisa Lund (partner Andrew Wruck) and April (Bryan) Keepers; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, with another grandchild on the way. He is further survived by his siblings: Liz Gooding, Julie (Kevin) Palmbach, Pat (Dana) Fischer, Chris (Tommy) Krautkramer and Florence “Flo” Fischer.

Tony was preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws, and a granddaughter, Ireland Leigh Ann.

Funeral services will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at the Kessler-Fahrenkrug Funeral Home 304 S. Commercial St., Neenah. Visitation will be from 3:30 p.m. until the time of services. In honor of one of Tony’s favorite activities with his friends, following the funeral service there will be a “Taco Tuesday” celebration at the Old 41 Saloon in Neenah.
