We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Stone Funeral Home, Inc.
Eli Richard Fisher, 45, of Cross Village, Michigan passed away on June 22, 2022.
Born in Pontiac, Michigan on June 8, 1977, Eli was the second of six siblings.
A long-time tile mason, Eli took immense pride in his craft and in transforming the ordinary into something extraordinary. Eli was also a true outdoorsman. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, trapping, foraging, rock-hunting, raising chickens, making maple sugar and, of course, ATV adventures with his family.
He loved the seclusion and spirituality of nature, but also enjoyed meeting new people. He was one of those people that could carry on an hour-long conversation with you while waiting in line for groceries. His kind heart also meant he was always ready to help a stranger in need—from changing someone’s tire to towing cars out of snowy ditches. If Eli saw a turtle crossing the highway, he was the guy who would pull over and carefully carry it across the road. He lived by the motto “Be kind to everyone because you never know what someone may be going through” (And that includes turtles trying to cross busy roads.)
All of those who had the good fortune of crossing paths with him had the pleasure of experiencing his energy, charisma, zaniness, and an all-out zest for life. Eli left a strong and long-lasting impression on those he met. God really did break the mold with him.
Most of all Eli loved spending time with his six children. They were his sun, moon, and stars—and everything in between. He also loved Bethany, his best friend, confidant, mother of Levi, and long-time life partner.
Eli’s survivors include Bethany Hood; his children Erica (Anthony) Smith, Nina Fisher, Preston Fisher, Masen Fisher, Carsen Fisher, and Levi Fisher; and three grandchildren. He is also survived by his parents Vicki Miller-Perrier and Richard Fisher; and siblings Rachel (Gil) Fisher Rodriguez, Lesley Fisher, Emily Fisher, Lee Fisher, and Isabella Perrier.
