Mark Ericson Fischer, 68, went home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on November 24, 2021.
Mark, son of the late Eric and Rogene Fischer, was born on August 27, 1953 in New York, New York.
Mark was blessed with a large and loving family. He married his beautiful wife, Denese Kluver on June 5, 1976 in Spokane, WA. Together they had four children. He had a bachelor degree in Biblical Studies from Inland Empire School of the Bible in Spokane, WA. Mark was also a certified Orthotist and worked for 15 years at Riessen’s Evergreen Orthopedic and Prosthetic.
Mark served several communities, Cusick, WA, Avery, ID, Benge, WA, Julietta, ID, and Pine Creek, MT
as a Pastor for Village Missions and made many lifelong friends from each of these places. He also authored two books, “When Your Soul Enters the Iron: Finding God to be Enough When the Pain Doesn’t Go Away” and “Advance Notice: Jesus Wins.”
Mark is survived by his wife, children, Josh (Adrienne) Fischer, Tim (Rachele) Fischer, Jennie (Brooks) Thome and Tiffany (Heath) McInnes, and sixteen grandchildren, Cameron, Carter and Mikayla Fischer, Terek (Sierra), Tianna, Mia Asbury, Tyse, and Harley Fischer, Ellie, Jesse, Jordan and Livi Thome, and Oscar, Sydney, Maxwell and Knox McInnes.
Mark and Denese often refer to their life verse, 1 John 4:4:
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One Who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
Whether you knew Mark as brother, uncle, friend, Sunday School Teacher or Pastor, you have no doubt heard his mini sermon which would come up in most conversations:
• God is the blessed controller of all things
• God has a plan and He’s working it
• The most important thing in life is our relationship to Jesus
These simple and powerful truths were evident in Mark’s daily walk with the Lord.
There will be a service to celebrate and honor the life of Mark E. Fischer at Calvary Spokane, 511 W. Hastings Rd, Spokane, Washington, on December 13, 2021, at 3:00 P.M. A light reception will follow the ceremony at the church at 4:00.
