Anthony G Schirripa
10/28/1943 - 1/22/2020
Anthony was the strongest man I knew. He was a fighter to the end of life. We thought we were going to lose our dad in 2017 and he miraculously rose from the ashes and came back to us. We lost our mother, MaryAnn in April, 2018 and now here we are less than two years later having to say goodbye to our father. The church and veteran's cemetery do not accept flowers, therefore we are asking that in lieu of flowers that you consider making a contribution to the cost of his arrangements. With sincere thanks and gratitude, The Schirripa girls, Michele, Rachael and Anjelica.

Jacque Favors
1/16/1985 - 1/23/2020
At age 35, Jacque Favors was loving life....recently engaged, just starting a new job, and her little boy, Jacob, was the apple of his mama's eye. And tragically, on Thursday, Jacque passed away unexpectedly. There are no words, no answers...just a numbness that screams, "She is gone." She leaves behind her beloved family and many friends. To say they are stunned is an understatement. Their hearts have been broken. The value of a small town is found in the people you are surrounded by an when someone is hurting, a small town responds with a desire to help. What this family needs most right now is your love. There is no insurance, no savings. But, if we all pitch in - each adding what we can - we can be a blessing to this family. At Fisher Funeral Chapel, we work with families to keep the cost at a minimum, especially when crowdfunding is a necessity. Our philosophy is simple, "There, but for the grace of God, go I." None of us know what tomorrow will bring and we pray that we never find ourselves in this situation. If we can help lessen someone's load, make their grief a little easier to bear...we have the assurance that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. We can be difference-makers in a world that needs more acts of kindness so very much.

Rocky Hopkins
6/10/1958 - 1/28/2020
Rocky was the life of the party no matter where he went. He lived life to the fullest, and that included loving to the highest degree. He was always willing to help anyone who needed it. His son and daughter remember his caring nature and gentle spirit. Rocky lived so much in the present that he, unfortunately, did not have life insurance, so the burden has fallen on his children and we are trying to alleviate that so they can grieve and heal without worrying about going into debt. All donations go directly to the funeral home to cover expenses. Thank you for generosity!
