Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Walter Fisher

There was a Lt.Fisher who was a old school Willow Springs cop as long as I could remember from 1979 where I was born and raised until 2012 I believe he passed in the late 2000’s I wonder if this was a relative in them days in that south west suburban area your closest neighbor was 2 miles way. RIP to them both Lt. sunny fisher “fish” was rough on me when I was a punk kid but he was a good man and loved Willow Springs I believe he was related to one of the first big family’s in the area the Tiedts sorry if I got the spelling wrong but they called the unincorporated area around willow springs Tiedtville in stories I heard from some original old-time residence there was only about 700 people in that town when I was born there’s at least 10,000 down after annexing property from the county. Reminds me of them old black and white James Cagney crime movies imaging that area 90 years ago I know the exact location to this day. Sounds like a brave man RIP to All who died protecting the good. But that was Capone’s territory at that time he had hide outs speak ezs and brothels Tunnels leading from the I&M canal One bar still stands to this day on archer Avenue it’s been completely remodeled there is a tunnel in the basement sealed off It was a biker bar for a long time now it’s a Irish pub I believe AL Capone’s original picture is still on the wall On the southside of archer Avenue just west of Willow Springs Road across from the Willowbrook ballroom.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 86th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
