Sidney was born on June 26, 1937, the youngest of three children, to Sidney A. and Jessie Burroughs Fisher in Cortland, NY. He grew up and lived his life in Spafford, NY. After graduating from Homer High School, he continued the family career in dairy farming. He married Nancy Hamm in 1961. They were blessed with one daughter, Deborah. Sid and Nancy sold their farm in the late 1980’s and he went to work for Fesko Farms until he retired 3 years ago. Sid was an avid outdoors-man who loved hunting and fishing. Another passion of his was gardening. He was a volunteer in the Spafford Fire Department and a member of Borodino United Methodist Church.
Sidney was predeceased by his wife Nancy, his parents, his brother Gilbert (Grace, Sally) Fisher, and his sister Ruby (Howard) Sweet. Sidney is survived by his daughter, Dr. Deborah Fisher (Lawrence Carney), and his two grandsons, Tyler Carney and Tucker Carney. He is also survived by his significant other, Suzanne Hutchinson, and other loving family members.
Sid enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Young and old enjoyed Sid’s fun-loving spirit and great sense of humor. In the words of Jody Fisher, “Sid was and forever will be a great man!”
