Brian Robert Fisher, age 60, passed unexpectedly of natural causes on June 6, 2020, in Greenville, PA.
Brian was born on March 4, 1960, the firstborn son of his parents Robert and Doris Ann Bromley Fisher and the oldest grandchild of both John and Dorothy Patterson Bromley and Donald and Eleanor Fisher Williams.
Since birth, Brian was involved in church and faith has always been the foundation of his life.
Brian grew up involved in all aspects of the church's ministries including weekly Sunday School classes, Vacation Bible School, youth groups, church softball, and his beloved mission, Deep Valley Christian Service Camp in Slippery Rock, PA. Over time, he assumed the roles of Sunday School Superintendent, camp Dean, Sunday School teacher, youth leader, and church elder.
Brian was a 1978 graduate of Lakeview High School, where he competed in football and track. He went on to obtain a degree in drafting and design from Pittsburgh Technical Institute. Since 1979, he has been employed by Werner Ladder Co. He began with the company as a designer draftsman and was currently working as a Manager of Advanced Manufacturing Technology and had traveled the world serving Werner’s global enterprises.
Brian met Patti Trimmer and they were wed on October 6, 1984, at Carpenters Corners Church of Christ by Mr. Richard L. Brown, minister, and took up residence in Greenville, PA, where Patti remains. They became the parents of a daughter, Danielle, and three sons, Benjamin, Jonathan, and Corey. Danielle married Brandon Stephenson and they have three sons, Noah, Drew, and Coby. Jonathan married Rebekah (Jaussen) and they have one son, Soren.
Brian is also survived by his parents, his siblings, Randall Fisher, Brenda Fisher, and Darla Andrew and her husband James Eric. He is survived, as well, by several nieces and nephews and their families as well as many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends who are as close as family.
Brian loved playing various sports and games, especially with his kids and grandkids. He enjoyed attending games with friends and family and had served as a PIAA Football official for twenty-six years..
He loved traveling the world, experiencing various cultures, and making new friends everywhere he went. He was well-respected and loved by everyone he met, and he will be greatly missed by people throughout the world.
Brian and Patti are known and loved by so very many. Brian's love for Christ shown through in the kindness and encouragement he passed on to all he met and served. Even as we are confident of his reward, we are deeply and forever changed by his sudden passing. "Well done, good and faithful servant."
In remembrance, flowers are welcome, but, in lieu of them, donations to Emmanuel Christian Church, One Church Pittsburgh, or Deep Valley Christian Service Camp would honor Brian's legacy beautifully for his heart was in them all.
Patti & kids – I am so profoundly sorry for your loss. What a good guy Brian was and his obituary is a perfect tribute to him. Well done Brian……….God’s good and faithful servant. I’m praying for all of you.

The lyrics “Who’s going to fill their shoes; who’s going to stand that tall” comes to mind.

Patti and family, I am so sorry to hear about Brian’s passing. I worked with Brian for 18 years on so many projects. Always a professional and always great to be around. A positive role model. My family’s prayers are with you and your family.
Patti and family – I am so shocked and so sorry to see this. I enjoyed knowing and working next to Brian for a couple of years. I always felt he was a great guy to work with and talk to. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.
My deepest sympathies to you and your family.
I recall working with Brian in our ‘early’ years at Werner. He was the voice of reason over a department of young mischievous equipment designers. A sharp contrast to the young sensible product group (wink). From all those years ago until more recent times, Brian has maintained a longstanding reputation for excellence and professionalism.
He was a tremendous help to the Werner – Louisville Division. Over the years, he provided guidance for countless projects and developed solid friendships. His vast knowledge and friendly demeanor made working with him a pleasure.
He will truly be missed.
Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Doris, Bob & Family,
I’m so very sorry for your loss. Please accept my deepest sympathy. May God be with you & your whole family in your time of sorrow.
My thoughts & prayers are with you.
Patti and family, My sincere sympathy to all of you in this time of great loss. Brian was a beautiful person, always kind and helpful when I had a question for him at work. I know he was a great family man and will be so very missed. I’m keeping you all in my prayers at this sorrowful time. Love to all.
Patti and Family,
I am deeply grieved to hear of Brian’s passing. I worked many football games with Brian and remember him fondly as a man of great competence and integrity. I mourned his early retirement from the avocation of officiating and now mourn his early passing from this world. Amidst that grief, I rejoice in his presence with our Lord. I pray for God’s blessing of comfort for you all.
Dear Brian’s family.
I am very sorry for your loss, Brian was a great friend, coworker and mentor, He will be greatly remembered and honored by his great heart.
Be proud of him, you are my thoughts and my most sincere condolences.
