LeRoy Adam Fischer was born August 24, 1946 in New Leipzig, North Dakota.  He was the son of John and Elma (Hiem) Fischer, and grew up on a family farm.  He graduated from the New Leipzig High School.  Roy served in the U.S Army from December of 1966 until January of 1968.  During this time he served as a Green Beret Special Forces and did tours in Germany and several special missions.  Roy was united in marriage to Janet Steiber on May 9, 1969 in Bowman, North Dakota.  To this union three sons were born: Adam, Eric, and John.  Following their marriage Roy and Janet lived in Gettysburg SD where Roy worked in construction.  For several years he also worked as a ranch manager, machinist, and his work took him to the tri-state area.  In 1999 he moved to the Black Hills.  As a Master Carpenter, Roy owned and operated Fischer Repair and Construction and he was always grateful to work with his boys.  He was a talented carpenter, and a man of many talents. 


Roy was a kind-hearted man who would do anything for anybody.  To know him was to call him “friend”.  He was a salt of the earth gentleman.  He was a wonderful grandpa, and father.  Roy and Janet were blessed with many years of marriage and they were genuinely in love.  There’s no place they would rather be than with each other.  Roy kept his family close to his heart.  He will be deeply missed by them all.


Roy is survived by his wife, Janet of Belle Fourche; 3 sons, Adam (Donna) of Murdo, Eric (Sherri) of Belle Fourche, John (Charlie) of Dickinson ND; 10 grandchildren, Jacob, Amanda, Zachary, Janna, Macale, Victoria, Chayse, Emersynn, Hadley, Jonathan; and 4 great grandchildren, Kai, Luna, Raven, and Juniper.  He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Esther, Irene, Agnes, Ida, Barbara; brothers, Lester and Leslie.
