Eric Wayne Fisher, 40, of Martinsburg, passed away Thursday, September 1, 2016.
Born April 25, 1976, in Frederick, Maryland, he was the son of Ronald W. Fisher (Mike) and Judith L. Moran Foss of Martinsburg.
Eric graduated from Frederick High School in 1994, and continued his education at West Virginia University. He was a proud member of the WVU marching band and developed an unwavering passion for WVU football. He attended nursing school at Frederick Community College and found his niche as a compassionate caregiver, dedicating his career to helping those in need and truly making a difference. Most recently, he was employed at the Martinsburg VA Medical Center as a Registered Nurse.
Eric was always the first person to lend a hand, offer support or make you laugh. His laughter was contagious. He cheered rigorously for the Mountaineers each game day, and enjoyed spending time with his family, friends and two beloved cats, Socrates Spencer and Priscilla Lynn.
In addition to his parents, Eric is survived by his sister, Amy L. Fisher of Bethesda, Maryland and grandmother, Jessie M. Fisher of Frederick, Maryland.
He is predeceased by his grandparents, Edward L. and Margaret F. Moran, as well as his grandfather, Grayson L. Fisher. He will forever be in the hearts of many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
The family will receive friends from 3 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, September 8, 2016, at Stauffer Funeral Home, 1621 Opossumtown Pike in Frederick, Maryland.
Funeral services will be held at the same location at 11 a.m. on Friday, September 9. Pastor Nick Scott will officiate.
Interment will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
