Celebration of Life

Oryl Lee Fischer, October 4, 2019, 10:30 am, United Methodist Church, Broken Bow, NE.

The dash between the dates of birth and death is the life that Oryl lived. A life surrendered to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In his death, the testimony and witness of his faith lives on. He joins his wife, daughter, and other family members, as a part of the “Mighty Cloud of Witnesses” that continue to encourage us and cheer us on in our faith to walk as the Rabbi walked.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.”—John 3:16-17
