STEVENSVILLE - Ralph K. Fisher, 77, died of natural causes on July 29, 2011, at St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula.

Ralph was born on Nov. 27, 1933, in Billings and grew up on a ranch northeast of Billing. He attended schools in Nibbe (no longer exists), Worden and Hysham, where he graduated in 1951. He worked for Northern Pacific Railroad until 1953, when he was drafted into the U.S. Army during the Korean campaign. He was discharged from the Army in 1955 and returned to Montana where he resumed a position of foreman with the NP Railroad.

In 1956, he joined the U.S. Navy and served honorably until 1960. He is a lifetime member of VFW Post No. 8017, Missoula. During his tours with the Army and Navy he was in 23 foreign countries and as a noncommissioned officer served primarily in administration and electronics.

Upon his discharge from the service he came to Missoula and was hired as a deputy sheriff for Missoula county where he served as a detective until 1967. He was then hired by the state of Montana as a probation and parole officer. He was regional supervisor of the parole and probation system for 23 years until his retirement on Aug. 11, 1990. During his law enforcement career he received numerous letters, plaques and commendations. He was respected by all that worked with him.

He is survived by a son, Brady K. Fisher and two daughters, Sheila R. Hardy and Gwendolyn A. Cote.
