Britton "Brit" Adair Fisher, 82, passed away on Saturday, January 30, 2021 in Annapolis, Md.
He was born on June 3, 1938 in Harrisburg, Pa., the son of the late Z.B. and Edith Fisher.
Following his graduation in 1956 from West Shore Joint High School, he attended Penn State University where he studied electrical engineering.
After retiring from a long career with AT&T as a field technician, supervisor and later, business analyst, Brit joined the US State Department working on network repair.
He relocated from Pennsylvania to Maryland in 1969, raising his family in Waldorf, and later living in Arnold and Lewistown, Md.
Brit was very much involved in his community. He served as a Boy Scout leader, youth sports coach, PTA president and youth group ministry. He enjoyed his faith community and was actively involved in the choir with Good Shepard Methodist Church in Waldorf, Md. and later with Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Frederick, Md.
Brit held a variety of interests including a collection of HO trains and old radios. He enjoyed ham radio operating, volleyball and participating in the Free State Theater Organ Society. In his youth, he played bass guitar in a local band in Pennsylvania. A social man, Brit enjoyed meeting frequently with his high school friends at the Hoss's restaurant in Mechanicburg, PA. He enjoyed national and international travel throughout his life.
However, his greatest love was that of his family. Brit was the loving husband to the late Sandy Sweet Fisher (married Feb 27, 1959) and the late Janet Day Rippeon Fisher (married June 27, 2009).
In addition to raising three sons, Brit and Sandy ran a small antique shop in Waldorf. In his later years, Brit and Janet Fisher enjoyed singing in the Frederick Chorale choir and hosting large yearly Thanksgiving dinners at their Frederick home surrounded by friends and family.
Survivors include three sons: David (Karen) of Charlotte Hall, Md., Steve (Cheryl) of Annapolis, Md., Michael (Teri) of Oklahoma City; three stepchildren Austin Rippeon (Faythe) of Frederick Md., Wesley Rippeon (Teri) of Lake Forest, CA, Hope Rippeon (Gregory) of Seattle WA; one brother Gary (Lynn) and his sister in law, Marcia Sweet of Toronto Canada, three grandchildren, and ten step-grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
