In Loving Memory
Robert Aaron Fisher finished his earthly sojourn on Monday, June 28, 2021.
Born in Salt Lake City, Utah on January 5, 1985 to Julie M. and Robert S. Fisher, Aaron came into this world as an overly active busybody, putting around with his toys and tools, earning the childhood nickname “Putter;” a nickname that would later prove appropriate as his passion for golf grew. His artistic nature and curious mind were evident in his aptitude to build and create. A sports fanatic, Aaron loved to watch, but preferred to be out on the field, whether for golf or basketball, soccer or football. Aaron was no stranger to the gym and he made heads turn with his good looks. His exterior may have been comparable to the Incredible Hulk but, at heart, he was a giant teddy bear who adored tussling with his nieces and nephews. On family vacations, if he was not busy catching lizards, Aaron was off performing extreme water tricks often resulting in some injury. Dogs sensed his fun and rambunctious nature, flocking to wrestle with him. His talents overflowed, but his mind would not let him see that.
For much of his life, Aaron braved the storm of mental illness and battled the disease of addiction. But when Aaron could be himself, he had the biggest heart. In his final days, Aaron expressed how much he wanted to help those who struggled like him. Many have already relayed the impact he has had on their lives, and he will continue to work miracles on the other side. We are so proud of him.
Aaron is survived by his parents, Rob and Julie Fisher; his siblings, Megan Fisher (Michael Erb), Ryan Fisher (Kylee Fisher), and Rachel Fisher (David Sandhu); and his beloved nieces and nephews, Madison, Ashley, Ethan, Lincoln, Oliver, Jackson, and Callan. Preceded in death by his grandparents and aunt, Aaron is certainly putting around the golf green with Papa, worrying Gram while catching wicked air on the wakeboard, working on projects and eating lunch with Grandpa, and rolling his eyes as Grandma and Aunt Lisa chat his ears off.
His family is forever indebted to Aimee Clements Hadfield for being Aaron’s angel. And a special, heartfelt thanks to Spirit Mountain who, in his words, gave him hope and made him feel loved as one of God’s children.
We love you, Aaron. We always have and always will. Be free.
