Visitation held for fallen Sturgis firefighter


News Staff - September 14, 2018

STURGIS, S.D. - Due to an expected large turnout, visitation for David Fischer was held at the Sturgis Community Center Thursday.

Fischer died while battling a house fire in Tilford last Friday.

Jim Bussell, the public information officer for the South Dakota Local Assistance State Team says "David Fisher exemplifies service. He made his life's work serving others, whether through his service to our state or our nation in the National Guard or whether it was to the Black Hills community as a member of Sturgis Fire Department and Sturgis ambulance. This is the least that we can do to remember him and recognize him and to thank him for his service."

Fisher was the assistant fire chief with Sturgis Fire Department and ambulance service for 22 years. Before his time at the fire department he was a member of the South Dakota National Guard where he served his country for 23 years.

His funeral services will be held Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at Sturgis Brown High School. After the services, a procession will leave the high school and travel back into Sturgis, down Junction Avenue, and to Black Hills National Cemetery, where a private burial will take place.

Those who wish to honor David Fischer are encouraged to line the streets for the procession Saturday afternoon.
