Gordon Lee Fisher passed into eternal life on August 10th. He was born in Wyoming but called Steamboat Springs an Columbine home most of the time since 1952.

He then worked at a variety of jobs including construction.

Let him step to the music he hears…” Gordon received a terminal diagnosis on July 20th and responded by saying, “Adios World, Hello Jesus.” He was well loved by his family and is survived by his brothers, Dennis and Wes and his sister, Trudith, as well as sistersinlaw and nieces and nephews.
