  2. Our condolences to the family. We met JR upon moving to Bayou Vista 4 yrs ago. He our contractor for our boathouse. A good friend and remained to be our friend. He occasionally stopped by and had a bottle water or a soft drink. I didn’t get to see him before passing but he did call from the hospital a couple of times. I will dearly miss him.

  7. I lost a great builder friend this week….a man that will graciously teach you from his heart the things he learned from the sweat of his brow over a lifetime…Is a real friend … Blessings to the family of JR Fisher

  8. We saw him struggle to finish our home. He always showed up with a smile, a newspaper, and lunch. When we see an old red truck, we’ll smile at the memory. We love our home and JR worked hard to make us happy. We learned a lot from him during this last year. And, we feel blessed to have met him.
