Maxwell S. Fis­chbach


Mr. Maxwell S. Fis­chbach of Lyn­nwood, Wash. passed away at the age of 77 on Thurs­day, Au­gust 18, 2016.

Maxwell was born in Spokane, Wash. on Jan­uary 1, 1939, to Harry and Bertha Fis­chbach. He grad­u­ated from Lewis & Clark High School in 1957 and went on to ma­jor in Busi­ness at the Univer­sity of Wash­ing­ton. Prior to Max grad­u­at­ing from col­lege he served in the United State Army from 1961 to 1967, pro­tect­ing the coun­try he so proudly loved. Af­ter grad­u­at­ing from UW, Maxwell had a long and dis­tin­guished ca­reer with the De­part­ment of De­fense un­til he re­tired in 2000.

While fin­ish­ing col­lege, Maxwell met his soul­mate and the woman of his dreams, Naomi R. Smith. They got mar­ried in 1965 in Idaho. Years later they had two boys, Lance and Rex 4 1/2 years apart.

One of Maxwell’s many pas­sions was his love for his Ger­man Shep­herds. Over the years Maxwell held nu­mer­ous po­si­tions for the Ger­man Shep­herd Dog Club of Wash­ing­ton State and was im­mensely proud of all things Ger­man Shep­herd. Maxwell also loved guns, play­ing pool, mus­cle cars, and pol­i­tics.

Max lived by the fa­mous Win­ston Churchill motto “Never Give Up”. He fought can­cer with ev­ery­thing he had till his Ànal day.

He is sur­vived by his two sons, Lance and Rex, daugh­ters-in-law, Jean­nie and An­gela; and grand­chil­dren, Par­ris, Ava, Keira, and Beau.

To our Dad, loyal friend, rock, and pro­tec­tor we will miss you! We will es­pe­cially miss your wis­dom, strength, guid­ance and opin­ion­ated rants. We know you are in a bet­ter place now with mom and your dogs! You may be gone, but you will never be for­got­ten from our hearts and minds; we will al­ways love you!
