Robert (Bob) Fisler passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday, January 13th 2022, at 81 years old. Bob was born in Milwaukee County on August 3rd, 1940 to Glenn and Dorothy Fisler (remarried to John Sitar). He grew up in St. Francis Wisconsin and enjoyed sleeping with the family rabbits in their hutch and building underground forts to play outside. Bob earned his pilot’s license through the Civil Air Patrol as a young adult, and always enjoyed flying as a hobby. Most of his professional career was in sales, with Sears-Roebuck, but he did own his own business for a time. Bob married the love of his life, Lynn in 1985, and they were married for almost 37 wonderful years. Bob and Lynn enjoyed traveling and spending time with family. Bob and Lynn traveled all over the United States in the plane he owned with two other buddies. Along with flying, Bob also loved to go on cruises and see the world. A few of his favorite places that he traveled to were Alaska and the Panama Canal. Bob and Lynn would always take lots of pictures, and make scrapbooks or videos of their wonderful travels to share with family when they returned home. When he wasn’t traveling, Bob enjoyed spending time at home with his pets Sophie the cat and Joey the dog, they also had rats in the past, Zoe & Molly who were very spoiled and would love to sit with Bob while he read the paper or watched tv.

Bob is preceded in death by both his parents, Glenn and Dorothy, and his step-father, John Sitar, and his sister Margie. He is survived by his beloved wife Lynn, and step-brother Bob (Bev) Sitar, and his five children Scott (Kelly) Fisler, and Laura Peart, Sherri (Matt Fischer) Veir, John (Liana) Veir, and Lisa (Juan) Padilla. He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Davin, Brittney (Jeff), Mariah (Michael), Adam (Denae), Miranda (Donnavon), Lorena (Rene), Madison (Duncan), Emilio, Sadie, Wyatt and Chloe, along with 10 great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and other family and friends. Family and friends will gather Monday, January 24, 2022 at the 414 Church 7515 W National Ave, West Allis, Wisconsin 53214 with visitation from 3:00 pm until time of the Memorial Service at 5:00 pm.

Bob was an easy-going person, often remarking “it is what it is,” about life, taking everything one day at a time. He always tried to make everyone else smile and always laughed at his own jokes, another phrase he would often use was “I crack myself up.” We will miss him immensely, but we know he is flying high with his buddies, perusing whatever social media they have in heaven and enjoying the peace. Bob will always be with us in our hearts and memories.

    We’re so saddened to hear of Bob’s death. I’ll always remember him and the fun we had when he allowed me to “fly” his plane for a while over lake Michigan when I was 16. Our thoughts are with you and everyone else there. Cathleen

    Bob was such a great guy. I loved Bob and Lynn’s love for each other. Was so good to see. I was always happy for them. May this time of being apart have its own good until they are blessed to enjoy each other’s fellowship again.

    Lynn just heard about Bob’s passing so sorry for your loss. A few years ago at the Hellrung Family Reunion really enjoyed spending time with you, Bob and Carol & Jim.
