Albin Charles “Sonny” Fisher Jr. passed away on Monday November 25th, 2019 at the age of 84. Sonny is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Barbra Hertz Fisher, loving son Albin Charles “Chuck” Fisher III and loving daughter-in-law, Brandi Suggs Fisher, grandfather of Tobie Madison Fisher and Alexis Rain Fisher. He is proceeded in death by his mother Carolyn Klein Fisher of Mobile, Alabama, father Albin Charles Fisher Sr. of New Orleans, Louisiana and his sister Betty Rae Menchel of New Orleans, Louisiana.
Sonny Fisher was born on October 19, 1935 in New Orleans, Louisiana. He attended Fortier High School where he received a full track scholarship to Tulane University. After college he joined the Marine Corps and was stationed in Hawaii. Upon returning home he met and married his wife Barbra Hertz of Pensacola, Florida. Sonny continued his life’s journey by becoming the Vice President of Maison Blanche. This afforded him the opportunity to travel the world eating and drinking in the finest of establishments.
Sonny’s illustrious career in the clothing industry was second to none. His greatest joys in life were his family, friends, good food, great music and “two fingers of Grey Goose on the rocks.”
Sonny’s personality was such that he never met a stranger. People would automatically gravitate to him. He always said, “If you can count true friends on one hand you are an extremely blessed person,” … he would have needed a few extra hands.
Family and friends are invited to attend the memorial service at E.J. Fielding Funeral Home, 2260 W. 21st Avenue, Covington, Louisiana 70433 on Tuesday December 3rd, 2019 at 2:00pm with visitation beginning at 12:00 (noon).
A celebration of his life will be held at Keith Young’s Steakhouse located at 165 Hwy 21, Madisonville, La. 70447.
In lieu of flowers the family requests donation in memory of Mr. Fisher be made to either Heart of Hospice or the St. Tammany Humane Society.
