Kenneth "Fish" Fischer, 55, Embden, ND died in his sleep on Sunday, August 17, 2008 at his lake home near Dent, MN.

Kenneth Allen Fischer was born on February 12, 1953 in Dickinson, ND to Ervin and Florence (Koepplin) Fischer. He grew up at Hebron, ND and graduated from Hebron High School in 1972. Ken married Mary Kuhn in May of 1975 at Hebron. They made their home in West Fargo before moving to Casselton in 1982. In 1995, they moved to Embden. He worked for Fairway Foods in Fargo for 25 years. He was currently working at General Equipment in Fargo.

Fish enjoyed spending time at the lake and with his grandkids. Playing cards, horseshoes and fishing provided many hours of entertainment for him along with being a MN Vikings fan.

He is survived by his wife, Mary of 32 years; a son, Dustin (Jana) Fischer of Hawley, MN; daughter, Tana (Justin) Neidviecky of Casselton; seven grandchildren, Tori, Cassie, Jessica, Sammy, Kennidi, Kryssa and Kayli; parents, Ervin and Florence Fischer of Hebron; two brothers, Ron of Hebron and Del (Peggy) of Moorhead, MN; two sisters, Sandy (John) Koffler of West Fargo and Stacy (Mark) Fitterer of Glen Ullin, ND; many nieces and nephews; and the extended family of Nancy Erdmann.

Thanks, for informing us about Ken's passing. It is with great difficulty for me to express my sadness with the passing of my boyhood friend.
Ken and I attended church together as boys and my mother was our Sunday school teacher. My mother has pictures of Ken and myself and others during those early years.
Ken and I as first and second graders would have our hot lunch and then we would see how many times we could race around the whole school building before the bell would ring for class.  As you can imagine Ken won most of time,  however, there were times when in those early years when I actually beat him! .  I remember Kenny and myself and some other first graders, when the new gym was built, throwing mud balls against the gym to see who could throw the mud balls the highest AND DID WE get in trouble. Those mud balls stuck for a long time!! 

When Kenny or I would get picked on by older kids on the play ground we would team up and as you can imagine when Kenny and I teamed up nobody else had a chance (in those early years).

When ever I could get into town, being a farm boy, we had baseball games across the street from Ken's early home in Hebron, just a block off of  Summit Ave on the brickyard empty lots, these are great memories. Our teams were usually made up of Ronny and Ken, Terry Weige, Kenny Magstadt, the Scheck boys, Sayler boys or who ever happen to be there.
One of my favorite memories of Kenny is  when we were juniors and Hebron was playing Glen Ullin at Glen Ullin in the district tournament; Kenny was playing with Mike Kuhn, Donny Remfert, and others and they were behind by 6 points with 43 seconds left, Hebron managed to win the game in triple overtime. Ken made some great plays and was a fierce competitor.
I and our class will miss Ken at our reunions.  Don, feel free to extend  my sympathy to other members of the class of "72".
