Albert was born on October 29, 1943 to Joseph and Bertha (Armbrust) Fisher in Dickinson, ND. He was baptized and confirmed at St Joseph’s Catholic Church and attended St. Joseph Catholic School in Dickinson. In 1961, Albert graduated from Central High School, Dickson, ND.
From 1962 to 1965, Albert served our country in the United States Army. Following his service, Al was united in marriage to his “High School Sweet Heart,” Lorraine Marie Heiser, on May 10, 1965. For nearly 56 years, Albert was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. Albert worked tirelessly to provide for his family and had great pride in the accomplishments of his three boys.
Albert worked as an electrician for Berger Electric, Dickinson, and, after moving to Thief River Falls in 1969, Langlie Electric, Thief River Falls. The family moved to the Plummer Farm in 1971, where he lived, farmed, and raised his family. From 1993 to 2018, Albert worked at Walter Brother’s Dairy farm.
Albert had a passion for gardening, making venison sausage, and woodworking. He had a God-given talent to turn raw lumber, much of which came from trees logged on the farm, into amazing keepsakes that adorn the homes of loved ones and friends – through which Albert’s memory will live on.
Albert is survived by his wife, Lorraine; sons Brian (Jeanette Sinn) Fisher, Russell (Kimberly) Fisher, and Shannon (Lance Schoenke) Fisher; grandchildren Hunter (Ashley) Fisher, Maddison ( Jason) Fisher Grove, Megan Barker, Dionne (Jeff) Hoffman, Jasmine (Daniel) Hage, Bethany, Joshua, Caleb, and Jessica Fisher, Jaden and Alexandra Hanks,and great-granddaughter-to-be, Amelia Kay; 4 sisters, Florence (Gene) Erickson, Rosemary Berger, Tilly (Stanley) Kuntz, and Annie (Clarence) Huschka; and many nieces and nephews and their families.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Joseph and Bertha Fisher, brothers, Joe, Frank, and John Fisher, several nephews, bother-in-law, George Berger, and sister-in-laws, Katie Fisher and Rosemary Fisher.
Anyone who knew Albert, loved him. May God bless his memory.
