More detail on this person: FISER, John Edward passed from this life July 14, 2015 in Largo. John was the son of Carmen and Kathryn Fiser and the first of three sons. He is survived by brothers, Tom and his wife, Laura, and Burt, and his wife, Jan. He was married to Jacqueline Darlene Fiser, the daughter of Virgil and Othel Bigger, for more than 50 years. Together, they raised four sons, all of whom survive them: Jeff and his wife, Lois and their children Luke, Sarah, and Jordan; Joel and son, Ian; Christopher and his wife, Dawn; Curtis and his wife, Dana and their children, Cassyln and Jackson.

John served 22 years in the United States Air Force and retired as a Lt. Colonel. He was a pilot and flew for most of his career, which included a tour in Vietnam flying Huey helicopters for the Air Force Special Services. He retired in 1978 to Tampa, where he and Jacqueline finished raising their children. He enjoyed woodworking and gardening, both skills he picked up while growing up on a farm in northwest Ohio, and working as a railroad carpenter. Dad was most proud of his family.

The family will hold a private memorial service at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local hospice.
