Mathew David Fisher Ph.D., born July 3, 1960 in Muncie, Indiana, was welcomed into Heaven on July 17, 2020. He was humble, gentle, and a devout servant of Christ. His career was spent as an English professor at Ball State University. He won several awards at Ball State including Outstanding Teaching and Outstanding Service. He later took a position at the University of Saint Francis as the Honors College Director, and an English professor. Mathew loved his wife, children, and God more than anything.  As a firm believer in the Catholic faith, he dedicated himself to becoming a Secular Franciscan.  His children will remember him as an attentive and loving father. Mathew was warm and welcoming to anyone who had the pleasure of crossing paths with him. He fought through several battles with cancer, but he tended to look past those challenges and see the positivity in the world. His legacy will live on through the lessons he taught his children about love, humility, grace and acceptance. He loved to fish and be out in nature, and was a cowboy at heart having spent much of his youth out west. He is survived by his loving wife Peggy, his two daughters, Noelle Fisher and Carly Fisher, his stepdaughter Leah Ludwig (Jacob), stepson Adam Byers (Whitney), his granddaughter Evelyn Byers, mother Barbara Massey Fisher Townsend (Allen), father Scott Ernest Fisher Jr., siblings: Kimberly Fisher (John Holmes), Karen Kean (Todd), Patrick Fisher (Debra), stepbrother Mark Townsend, stepsisters: Rachel Fisher, Norah Fisher, Sonya Griffith (Mark) and several nieces and nephews.
