Keith L Fisher passed away February 22,2024 in the arms of his wife, Claudette and his two daughters


Keith Leon Fisher was born November 8, 1932 to Howard and Henriette Nissen Fisher, but was raised by his grandparents Henry and Volterine Nissen. He lived his whole life in Alamosa graduating from Alamosa High School in 1950. He joined the United States Air Forse in May 1951 and served his country in the Korean War. He received an honorable discharge in 1955 while stationed at Ethan Allen Air Force Base in Winooski, Vermont.


He married Claudette Morin on June 4, 1955 at Sacred Heart Church in Barre, Vt, then returned to Alamosa to attend Adams State College and graduated with a B.A. in 1958 and a M.A. in 1961. After teaching at Sargent High School for seven years and two years at Alamosa Junior High, he operated a collection service for twenty years for several businesses including Alamosa Hospital and the San Luis Valley Federal Savings and Loan.


Keith was a lifetime member of the Alamosa Elks #1297, a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars post #899, and American Legion post #133. His greatest passion in life was hunting and fishing, and spending time in the mountains. His motto was " I'd rather be lost in the mountains than found in the city." He took great pleasure in his yard, working in his flowers and maintaining an immaculate vard. He loved the San Luis Valley and the lifestyle it provided. After retirement he enjoyed traveling to warmer climates in the winter, but always looked forward to returning to the valley.


He is survived by his wife Claudette Morin Fisher, daughters Sandra and Sharon Fisher of Grand Junction, and son Brian (Tamie) Fisher of Sun City, AZ. He was preceded in death by his son Ronald, who died of cancer 2013 at the age of 51, his brother Donald Fisher, his sister Beverly Kirby.


Because of health reasons, Keith and Claudette moved to Grand Junction into an Independent Living Facility Solstice Senior Living Center on June 6th to be closer to their daughters.
