Karl "Jim" Fischer

May 19, 2013 — October 14, 2013

Karl James Fischer, the sixth of seven children of Karl Jacob and Fredaricka (Weishaar) Fischer, was born May 19, 1930 on the family farm near Alma, Nebraska. He was baptized May 25, 1930 at Peace Lutheran Church in Alma by Pastor Hassark and confirmed at the same church April 1, 1945 by Pastor Hollinson. Karl attended District 72 School through the 8th grade, and graduated from Republican City High School in the spring of 1948.

On March 5, 1955 Karl was united in marriage to Shirley E. Forbes at the Methodist Church in Huntley, Nebraska. They were blessed with three children: Bruce Allen, Daniel Lee, and Karen Elaine.

Karl was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Auburn, where he kept active in church affairs. In his spare time he very much enjoyed working in his shop and his yard, and the time he spent with his coffee buddies discussing various issues and news.

Following a six year battle with cancer, Karl passed away at Tabitha Journey House in Lincoln, Nebraska on Monday, October 14, 2013 at the age of 83 years, 4 months, and 25, days. In addition to his wife and parents, Karl was preceded in death by brother and sisters: Nora Rawson, Doris Hauggermann, Robert Fischer, and Ella Brugh.
