Cecil Conrad Fisher


Cecil Fisher was the son of Aubrey and Christine (Barnes) Fisher. After leaving Checotah High School, he began traveling the western side of the United States. He was very active and healthy. He lifted weights and walked around the United States. He landed in Houston and he really liked it there. He worked it as security for his apartment complex. He eventually moved to Muskogee. He loved Muskogee most of all. He never met a stranger and he learned to talk to people from all walks of life.
Cecil was proud of his Muscogee Creek Nation and loved to learn how his ancestors William and George Fisher, made history in building Fishertown Indian Territory. He was an early business owner in Checotah, as well. He liked to go to Powwows across the country. His other interests were reading all the books he could get his hands on. He would study the book and share what he learned. He especially loved the Bible and as a teenager, he preached at First Baptist Church on Wednesday. His name never showed up in history books or in the news, but what he did do, he did with enthusiasm.
Cecil was proceeded in death by his parents, ex-wife Lyndell Williamson.
Left to survive are brothers, CW (Clement) Fisher and wife, Theresa and Cedric Fisher and his wife, Cheryl. He also is survived by sister, Nevelyn and husband Frank, Carolyn Reece, unmarried, and Olivia (Marilynn) Gann Mobley and husband, David Mobley. He also left behind five nieces, Laura (McKnight), Sherry and Scott Gore and Wendy Fisher, Leah and Mark McCall) and Alicia and Wesley Kellum. He also had two nephews, Anthony and Misty Reece and Gregory Reece and 12 great nieces and great nephews.
Cecil will be remembered fondly and missed much. We will especially miss the stories he would tell us and reading the poems he wrote.
Hunn, Black and Merritt Funeral Home in Eufaula, OK took care of the embalming and he was buried in Fishertown Cemetery.
