Roydon R. “Robbie” Fisher

March 5, 1962 – Nov. 26, 2021

Roydon R. “Robbie” Fisher, 59, Lapel, passed away at home surrounded by family on Friday, Nov. 26, 2021 following a courageous three-year battle with cancer.  

He was born in Noblesville, on March 5, 1962 to James and Jane (Harvey) Fisher.

Mr. Fisher, a lifelong resident of Lapel, graduated from Lapel High School in 1980. He worked at Brockway Glass before joining the team at Elite Roofing in Noblesville where he worked for about 20 years. Toward the end of his life, though, he was fortunate to find his dream job — he became a truck driver for Bluegrass Farms in Anderson. He loved being on the road and seeing new places.

Mr. Fisher married his soul mate, Sandy Chaney, whom he met at a skating rink in Noblesville when he was 18 years old. Together they had two children, Zach and Danielle, both of which he was very proud of. As a family, they loved to attend concerts at Deer Creek, go camping, and vacation in his favorite place, California. Mr. Fisher loved to ride motorcycles and care for his dogs, but he will always be remembered for the love that he had for his family – especially his children and grandchildren.

Survivors include his loving wife of 41 years, Sandy; one son, Zachariah Fisher of Lapel; one daughter, Danielle (Chase) Walden of Lapel; two sisters, Brenda (Larry) Inskeep of McCordsville and Edie (Dan) Thompson of Lapel; six grandchildren, Draven Fisher, Ashe Fisher, McKenna Abel, Colton Walden, Charlee Walden and Cooper Walden; and many extended family members whom he loved dearly.

He is preceded in death by his parents; and his brothers, James “Jimmie” and Paul.

A celebration of life will be held at The Lodge on Main Street (808 N. Main Street, Lapel) on Sunday, Dec. 19 from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
