Richard Fish

On the morning of June 26, 2014, Doctor Richard W. Fish peacefully went home to the Lord at his home in Cosby, MO at age 83. Richard Wilmot Fish was born to William and Elinor Fish on October 18, 1930 in Jamaica, New York.
He graduated from Dwight L. Moody's Mount Herman Preparatory School in New York at age 16. Richard hitchhiked from there to Kansas State University where he pursued a degree in veterinary medicine. It was there that he met his wife, Sally, of Minneapolis, KS and was married on May 25, 1954.
His career began in Marinette, WI as a veterinarian for the State of Wisconsin. He also briefly practiced private veterinary medicine there before serving as the first staff veterinarian for Wisconsin Feeder Pig Cooperative in Francis Creek, WI.
The Fishes and their four sons settled in Cedarburg, WI where Richard worked for Fromm Laboratories. In 1980, the Fishes moved to Granton, WI and established
Grassland Veterinary Clinic. All the while, Sally taught school and the family raised sheep and cattle.
In Richard's "retirement," they sold the practice and moved to Rice Lake, WI where he served once again as a veterinarian for the State of Wisconsin. Since 2007, Richard and Sally have resided in Cosby, MO.
Throughout his earthly life, Doc's love of the Lord, family, livestock, hunting, fishing and sports was instilled in his sons and their families. A proud Kansas State alumnus, a passionate harness horseman and an active member of their church, Doc would share his words of wisdom to all he encountered.
Richard is preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Steve. He is survived by his wife, Sally Ann Fish (Brown); sons, Peter, Bill (Cathy), Douglas (Bonnie) and JC (Patti); grandchildren, Ashlee, Nathan (Andrea), Jared (Amanda), Jacob, Sarah Whitley (Tristian), Kyle, Holly, Jay, Ellie, Willie, Maggie and Charlie; and great-grandchildren, Annah and Mya.
A celebration of Richard's life was on Sunday June 29, 2014 at Frederick Boulevard Baptist Church, 5502 Frederick Boulevard St. Joseph, MO 64507. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Salvation Army or Heartland Health Hands of Hope Hospice.
