Tribute to Band Reservist Harold Fisher

Harold FisherHarold Fisher was born to Salvationist parents in Chesterfield in 1941, where he grew up and progressed through the Junior Corps to Senior Soldiership, eventually becoming Bandmaster.  Harold married his wife and life-long companion Barbara in 1962, becoming parents to Helen and Beverley and eventually grandparents of Gemma, Jack and Jorge.

After transferring to Sheffield Citadel in more recent years, Harold proved to be a conscientious and reliable, and much respected member of the Senior Band – testimony to which was the distance that some young Bandsmen travelled to be present at the thanksgiving service to his life.  At Sheffield, Harold also undertook the positions of Songster Sergeant, Songster Secretary and Publications Sergeant.  He went out of his way to ensure that everyone was made welcome at the Corps and was consistent in this and all other duties.

Harold spent all of his working life with Chesterfield Borough Council and it was whilst he was the Housing Manager for Staveley & District that Harold was instrumental in providing accommodation for The Salvation Army to recommence its witness in Staveley – work which continues today.

Harold’s faith and witness was constant, even through a long and debilitating illness leading to his Promotion to Glory.  Although greatly missed by family and friends, Harold Fisher will be remembered as a true Christian Gentleman.
