A veteran's burial service for Rev. Floyd Fisher will be held at the Raymond Hill
Cemetery, Carmel on Sat., Dec. 17 at 1 PM.
Rev. Fisher, who served with the OSS in Europe in World War II, was a Baptist minister for
4 decades, and had been pastor of the Wayside Chapel, Holmes.
Seeking to preserve the old graveyards of the county, he authored a compilation of early
burials, "They All Rest Together" (1972), which serves as a genealogical
reference to this day. He actively participated in cemetery restoration, and was a Past
President of the Kent Historical Society.
He was a licensed Radio Amateur for 45 years as WA2MPO, and a charter member of PEARL, the
local radio club.
Rev. Fisher managed the Veterans Residence in Carmel. He is honored in the New York State
Senate's Veterans Hall of Fame.
