Darwin C. Fisher
Darwin Craig Fisher was born July 17th, 1960, to Florence and Glenn Fisher of Uvalde, Texas.
He attended local schools and graduated from Uvalde High School, living in Uvalde and Montell for many years after graduation.
His love for the coast and fishing drew him to Aransas Pass, where he met his wife, Monica. They were devoted caretakers for a dear friend for many years and later retired in Rockport, Texas. Fortunately, Darwin and Monica had moved prior to the Rockport hurricane and were residing in Mathis at the time of his passing.
His untimely death was the result of his attempt to help at a wreck near Mathis on Jan. 18, 2019. Darwin suffered critical injuries as a Good Samaritan when another driver crashed into the accident scene. He passed away on Feb. 25, 2019.
Darwin treasured his friends, his Facebook friends, and his family. He will be remembered for his willingness to help those in need, his talent for nurturing plants, and his patience when fishing and teaching children to fish.
He was with his father, Glenn, at the nursing home all day every day for three months prior to his father’s passing. They shared a bond again and memories of fishing and cracking pecans.
Darwin is survived by his wife, Monica; their daughter Anna and husband Alan Johnston of Lagarto; his daughter Bethany Constance Fisher; his sister Glenda Fisher Smith of Austin; his nephew Ryan Samuel Smith of Bend, Oregon; and his niece Lauren Smith Habiby and her husband Wadie Habiby of Houston. He is fondly remembered by those he taught to fish: great-nieces Sadie Smith and Lila Habiby and great-nephew Samuel Habiby. He had a special relationship with his aunt, Marilynn Fisher of New Braunfels, formerly of Rockport. He will be missed by numerous Fisher and Reeves cousins who fondly remember his “smile, zany humor, and his enjoyment in telling a story.”
The family will honor Darwin’s request to forego services and will disperse his ashes at a later date.
He was very proud of his daughter, Bethany, who is a missionary in Honduras for the Church of Christ. The family requests memorials as a donation to her ministry.
