EARL FISHER as the husband of GRACE MARIE SPRENCEL FISHER and the father of famed treasure hunter MEL FISHER (#4281). He and his wife also had another child who died in infancy. GRACE and EARL married November 26, 1919. During World War I, EARL had to give himself a middle name to distinguish himself from other GIs. As he had been born without a middle name, he chose "Melvin" and later gave that name to his son. EARL and GRACE lived for a time in Hobart, IN s well as both California and Clearwater, FL. After EARL died of heart failure in Clearwater on May 26, 1982, GRACE donated his body to science. GRACE herself is buried in St. Paul's Cemetery as is her child who died in infancy.
