Wayne Ted Fisher

Born in Libby, Mont., on Oct. 23, 1956, Wayne was raised in Troy, Mont. He went to Troy schools from kindergarten through graduation and then entered the Navy. He spent four years sailing the Western Pacific and made many lifelong friends.

Wayne married his soulmate, Teresa, in 1976 and they raised two amazing daughters. He spent time in California, the Great Lakes, Hawaii, Alaska, Washington, Arizona, and Montana but Troy was always HOME. He was a hard rock miner, a logger and a motorcycle mechanic. He had a passion for music and loved to dance. He was a cowboy like his father as a young man, breaking horses and riding in o-mok-sees around the country. After a career as a miner, Wayne trained as a motorcycle mechanic and ran a successful business in Troy. He loved spending time with his grandchildren and teaching them about old music, westerns and life.

Wayne was a kind, generous, loving man and a friend to everyone. He never met a stranger. He was preceded in death by his mother Muriel, father Ted, sister Valinda, half-brother Teddy, and granddaughter, Rachel. He is survived by his beloved wife, Teresa, daughters Chera (Philip) Cole, Bobi Jo (Dustin) Grimes, sister Yvonne (Richard) Leader, half brother David Fisher, half sister Denise (Marvin) Speck, grandchildren Ashley, Derek, Shelby, Andrew & Connor, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many dear friends. He will be greatly missed.

A celebration of life will be held at the Troy Senior Center in Troy, Mont. on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 2 p.m. Potluck finger foods would be appreciated. Please bring a story or a memory of Wayne to share.
