Winthrop R. Fisher, Sr.

April 16, 1957 — March 27, 2024

Harrisonville

Winthrop Ross Fisher, Sr. passed away after a difficult battle with lung cancer on the morning of
Wednesday, March 27th, 2024.

Win was born on April 16, 1957, in White Plains, New York, to Charles and Arlene Fisher of
Darien, Connecticut. He was the youngest of four children. In his youth, he grew up around the
world, including places like England, Saudi Arabia, and Hawaii. Eventually, he settled in Houston,
Texas. In 1978, at the age of 21, while working at Aramco, he met the love of his life, Linda, and
she became the most important person in the world to him. They wed in 1981, and the two would
have an amazing love story that would carry them over the next four-plus decades together.

They raised three children in the Houston area until 1997 when they relocated to Lee's Summit,
Missouri. After their children moved away, the two called both Arkansas and Florida home. In
recent years, they chose to move back to the Kansas City area to be closer to their kids and
precious grandchildren. Shortly after relocating the last time, they learned of Win's illness and
Linda remained a force of nature by his side, dedicated day and night to his care until his very
last breath.

He is predeceased by his parents, grandparents, and one grandson, Dominic. He leaves behind
a heartbroken yet grateful family: his wife; children, Miranda Jones and husband Chris, Ross
Fisher and wife Amber, Elizabeth Griffin and husband Joe; nine beautiful grandchildren: Braden,
Peyton, Mackenzie, Gabriella, Caleb, Stephanie, Addison, Zachary, and Bennett; two sisters,
Cynder Niemela, Sandra Walterbach, and brother Charles Fisher III.

Win was a lover of the ocean and sailing. This love guided his request for the spreading of his
ashes in the Atlantic Ocean. The family will have a ceremony in Florida by boat to honor his
wishes on an undetermined date this summer. His joyous and affectionate spirit will live on
through us all as a testimony to his legacy. He will be greatly missed, always.
