Steven Alan Fischer was born on August 9, 1967, in New York Mills, Minn. to Gordon and Sharon (Vandermay) Fischer. He was confirmed at the Trinity Lutheran Church. Steven attended New York Mills High School, graduating with the class of 1985 and furthered his education by studying mechanics at Wadena Tech School.

Steven met Charlotte Myers at Amoco while fixing her car and the couple were blessed with two sons: Steven and Brian.

Deeply loved, Steven’s passing will be mourned by his children: Steven, Brian (Becky), Devin (Abby), Dylan, Chelsea, and Nathan; his grandsons Liam and Melvin Fischer; and his sister Brenda (Junior) Eblen.
