Edward "Ed" John Fischer, age 89 of Grand Marsh and formerly of Antigo passed away peacefully surrounded by his family Monday evening, March 30, 2015 at Our House Senior Living in Wisconsin Dells. Ed was born in Elton, WI to Francis and Marie (Klies) Fischer on November 28, 1925. He served his country during World War II as a member of the United States Navy.

Ed married Marilyn Powell on September 24, 1949 and together they were blessed with three children; she preceded him in death on June 8, 2009.

Ed was an avid outdoorsman, especially hunting and fishing. He proudly introduced his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the outdoors. Ed was a kind and gentle person who cared deeply for his family, his country and the well-being of others. In his later years, he spent countless hours waiting for the bus for his great-grandchildren to return from school always ready to spend time with them. Ed will be greatly missed. Ed is survived by his three daughters: Lynda (Gary) Bula of Grand Marsh, Sandra Fischer and Catherine Seis both of Antigo as well as six grandchildren: Jodi Holley, Tamra (Eric) Garz, Bryan (Lacey) Bula, Nathan (Michelle) Bula, Joseph (Dana) Seis, and Kori (Donnie) Helms.
