According to officials with the Georgetown Hockey Heritage Council, Fisher was set to receive its annual award in 1984 but passed away at the age of 65, just weeks before the induction ceremony and instead received the posthumous Murray Ezeard Award.
Fisher, a Winnipeg native, spent every Saturday through the fall and winter at the rink, serving as a head coach, timekeeper, general manager of registration and chief fundraiser, always carrying draw tickets in his pockets to sell.
He also coached minor baseball teams in Georgetown for several years.
