Obituaries » William “Bill” Fishback Sr.

William Edward Fishback Sr., 90, of Warrenton, passed away on March 12, 2017, under the loving care of the staff at Culpeper Health and Rehabilitation Center and Heartland Hospice, with family by his side.

He was born April 3, 1926, in Fauquier County, to the late Edward Jackson Fishback and Jessie Jacobs Fishback.

A World War II veteran, Mr. Fishback served in the U.S. Army Medical Corp.

He worked for Gill Implement Co. for 27 years before spending many years at Napa Auto Parts, where he retired. Always young at heart, and never one to sit still, he wasn’t retired for long. He worked for The Fauquier Bank for more than a decade and operated his own cleaning business until the age of 88.

Mr. Fishback’s favorite pastime was spending time with the people he loved most.

Survivors include his sons, William Fishback Jr. and wife Roberta of Ludington, Mich., and Richard Fishback of Bracey; his brother, Carter Fishback of Midland; his sister, June Childress of New Baltimore; his grandchildren, Jenifer Gozart and husband Jacob of Aldie, Amanda Kling and husband Erick of Jeffersonton, Jason Fishback of Salt Lake City, Utah, Justin (Elizabeth) Fishback and wife Elizabeth of Winchester, Julie Roberts of West Jordan, Utah, Jonathan Fishback of Prescott, Ariz., Jared Fishback and wife Sara of Winchester, Jeffrey Fishback of Prescott, Ariz., and Richard Fishback and wife Monica of Virginia Beach, and 16 great-grandchildren.

His wife, Emily Jane Ellinger Fishback; his sisters, Pauline Fishback and Ann Carrico, and brother, Gordon Fishback, preceded him in death.

The family will receive friends from 2 to 3 p.m. Friday, March 17, when the service will begin at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. Interment will follow at the Warrenton Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Orlean Volunteer Fire Co. New Building Fund, P.O. Box 15, Orlean, Va. 20128.
