Shane Ervin Fischer, the son of Kelvin and Judy (Sprenger) Fischer, was born on February 18, 1982 in New Ulm. He attended Holy Trinity Catholic Schools in New Ulm and was a 2000 graduate of the Cathedral High School in New Ulm. After graduation Shane worked at various places around New Ulm before moving to Hermantown where he was an ironworker for Dynamic Steel. He recently joined the Ironworkers Local 512 of which he was very proud. He remained employed there up until his death.
Shane was an avid outdoorsman, he loved to hunt deer, bear and other wildlife. He was known for manufacturing his own bows which he used for hunting. He also loved to fish and four wheel. Shane spent most of his life in the outdoors. When he wasn't hunting he enjoyed walking along the Minnesota and Cottonwood Rivers. Many of the times he had his greatest companions, his dogs, Zeitgeist and Gunner. While living in the New Ulm area Shane was a member of the Nicollet Conservation Club. He also had his own Bear Guide Service "The Zone" in the Orr area. He taught many people the sportsmanship of hunting. Amongst all of his loves, his greatest was his daughter Quinn; she was his pride and joy. Even though he won't be with her, he will live on through her.
In lieu of flowers the family prefers memorials.
