Robert Moore Fisher 1937-2021 Dr. Robert Moore “Bob” Fisher of Memphis passed away on September 17, 2021 at Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital, following complications from COVID-19. He lived a full and vibrant 84 years of life. Bob made helping others his life’s work. Born to Lorene and Ollie Fisher in Parsons, TN on May 9, 1937, he attended Parsons High School and the University of Tennessee at Martin before eventually obtaining his medical degree from the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in 1963. Bob began his medical career in Decatur County as a general practitioner before moving to Memphis, where he enjoyed a decades-long career as an ear, nose, and throat surgeon. He retired happily in 2017 after his 80th birthday. Bob’s friends knew him as a lively and energetic personality, always quick with his trademark dry wit. His patients knew him as a caring and reassuring physician. His family knew him as a warm, gentle presence. His three sons will always remember his knack for stitching up childhood scrapes on the kitchen counter. In his earlier years, Bob was an avid traveler, skier, angler, and outdoorsman. Later on, Bob was happiest when grilling and enjoying the outdoors with family at his Tennessee River cabin near his childhood home. He is survived and fondly remembered by his three sons: Robert Tyler Fisher, Esq. and his wife Taylor of Atlanta, Dr. James Ashton Fisher and his fiancée Dr. Tina Ramo of Memphis, and Chef Jonathan Maxwell Fisher of Chicago; the boys’ mother Suzie Fisher Jacobson; his siblings Ruth Helen Pinkley, Jo Jones, and David Fisher; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. The family will hold a private ceremony to celebrate his life at the family’s cabin in Decaturville, TN. In lieu of flowers, Bob’s family requests that those wishing to honor his life make a charitable donation to either St. Jude Children’s Hospital or Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis.
