Jim Fizer February 25, 2016

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of, Jimmie (Jim) Allen Fizer, 75, on Thursday, February 25th, 2016.

Jim leaves behind his wife of 57 years, Barbara (Bolyard) Fizer, his daughters Benita Winters (Dave), Lori Kreutzer (Kenny), Pamela Steelman, grand children, Shannon MacLeod (Derek), Erin Winters, Madeline Winters, Ronald Steelman Jr. (Chelsea), Dawn Steelman, Adam Kreutzer, great grandchildren Jacob, Gavin, Keegan, Madison, Ronnie III, and many other loving family and friends.

Jim was born and raised in Kingwood, WV, the son of Cloyd and Hazel (Wolfe) Fizer, and had 10 siblings. He then spent the rest of his life with his loving wife and children in the greater Cincinnati, Ohio area. In his early years Jim and his family owned and worked at the Fizer’s Dainty Maid Bakery on the West Side of Cincinnati. They spent their family fun time at “The River”, where they retired and lived for many years, before moving to Felicity, Ohio. In his later years, Jim became a very faithful Christian and spent countless hours volunteering by singing and spreading the word and love for the lord.

He was such a giving man he unselfishly gave life to his beloved sister, Shirley, so he still lives within her.
He was a great, selfless man, wonderful husband, father and Pappy. He spent his last day singing his favorite gospel songs and reciting scripture before he laid his head on Barb’s shoulder and peacefully went to heaven to walk with the lord. Heaven has gained an angel and he is in a “win, win situation”.

    He was always a wonderful uncle. Loved him dearly and so thankful he gave his sister (my aunt Shirley) life. I envy that fact that he is in eternal life with loved ones I have lost. He will be truly missed.

    Jim, I know you are looking down and trying to console everyone. You are where you wanted to be! Can’t think of a more loving man or one more willing to help someone in need. We sure had great times camping, boating, 4wheeling. Steve and I will miss you greatly.
    Barb, our hearts go out to you, not much we can do to help in your loss other than know we think of you daily and friends and family will get you through this.
    All our Love, Cris & Steve

      We just have always felt so much love coming from your family. We did have the best time together. I remember one trip we were running out of zip lock bags, and Jim thought that was so funny, but I have washed mine ever since. I remember everyone of us Fizer’s looking to see what foods you had cooked up for the camping trip because you were always THE BEST COOK! and Erin and Missy were practicing on Jim with the brownies. He loved how those two little squirts served him milk and brownies. He talked of it many times. And he loved hearing Steve’s stories about going out west to hunt and the shooting contests. Steve didn’t get a lot of time to talk around Jim tho. The boating, camping, 4 wheelin. All such wonderful memories. I love you all very very much.
