Lambert (Bert) Fischer of Red Deer, Alberta passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Hospice on 31 July 2014 at the age of 87. Born in Young, Saskatchewan, Bert was the youngest of 14 children.

Bert was predeceased by his wife Rita in 1982; his wife Astrid in 2011; and 11 siblings. The family would like to extend their gratitude and appreciation to the staff of the Red Deer Hospital Palliative Care Unit, and the Red Deer Hospice for their care and compassion. There will be no funeral service as per Bert’s request. A celebration of Bert’s life will be held at a later date.
