Fisher G. Dorsey, for many years in the shipping and transportation business in Houston and honorary viceconsul of Portugal, died Wednesday in Methodist Hospital.
He was vice president and director of the Lone Star Package Car Co., a director of the Fort Worth & Denver Railroad and the former operator of the Patrick Shipside Warehouse.
DORSEY, 67, had been in ill health for some time. He was taken to the hospital last Sunday.
He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Mabel Hubbell Dorsey, a Houstonian whom he married in 1936.
