He is survived by four sons, Scott, Gregg, Brett, and Geoff Fischer.
In 2001 Tom began the second half of his journey and found his greatest blessing and lifelong calling in sobriety. He was an active and involved participant and mentor in the AA program no matter where he was.
He also met and married Meredith Johnson, his second greatest blessing. He gained a second family, Jody, Jason, and Jared Johnson. Tom traveled with Meredith to all corners of the world and enjoyed every minute. Tom made his home in West Jordan, Utah with his wife Meredith until last April when they relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada.
