Norman L. Fisk passed away May 11, 2019 in Lacey, Wash., one day shy of his 80th birthday. He was born May 12, 1939 to Milford and Kathryn Fisk in Seattle, Wash. He worked and raised his family in Aberdeen, Wash. and, for the past 10 years, resided in Montesano, Wash.
Norman married Judith A. Stewart on April 12, 1958 in New London, Conn. They were married for 52 years, at the time of her death in 2012.
He served in the U.S. Navy at U.S. Naval Station, Newport, Rhode Island aboard the USS Blandy as a machinist. He was honorably discharged in 1960. Norman was a Police Officer with the City of Aberdeen, retiring with the rank of Sargent. He also worked as a machinist at Lambs of Grays Harbor before and after his career in law enforcement.
Norman had a lifelong passion for fishing, including a brief stint as a commercial fisherman out of Ocean Shores, Wash. He took many fishing trips all over the great Pacific Northwest, including Alaska, and Canada. After retirement Norman and Judy spent many happy winters in La Paz, Mexico, another favorite fishing spot. Their retirement travels took them on an epic car trip throughout the United States and also a memorable trip to Europe.
Norman is survived by their three daughters, Kelly (Michael) Miller of Aberdeen, Sally (Timothy) Sanderson of West Virginia, and Nancy (Thomas) Stevenson of Aberdeen; six grandchildren; five great grandsons; his brother, Brian; and his sisters, Pamela, Barbara and Colleen. He was predeceased by his parents, and brothers, Wayne and Ronald.
Following his wishes, no services are planned. His family will gather for Father’s Day and spread his ashes on the waves of his favorite fishing spot.
