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”.
