Jesse Hubert Fish, 83, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, died peacefully on August 22, 2020 with his loving wife of 40 years, Deloris, by his side.
Jesse was born on May 14, 1937 and raised on a farm in Maryville, Missouri. He could tell you stories of growing up on a farm and he especially enjoyed his teen years of riding around the dirt roads.
As an adult, his career of choice was driving truck. During his early years, he worked sleeper teams nationally. As he was unloading a truck in Cheyenne, Jesse decided he would like to live there, so Cheyenne became his home for his entire adult life. He later worked for and retired from Ward Transport, driving nationally and finally locally.
He met the love of his, Deloris “Debbie” Jean McVicker years and years ago. They were married in June 1980 and spent 40 years making each other laugh.
He was known as the “Great White Hunter” and his family never planned anything in October as he spent that month at elk camp. Momma thought she was a widow during hunting season. He loved the hunt and his time spent in comradery with his hunting buddies. And oh the tales and the truths you would hear.
Jesse was an avid gunsmith and spent many years smithing for Cheyenne Trading Post. He had a passion for this trade, as well as hobby, and many people trusted him for over thirty years with their rifles.
He is survived by his wife, Deloris of Cheyenne; his children, Marcia of Missouri, Donald of Missouri, Tami French of Washington, and Tracy (Tom) Gromley of Missouri; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
Due to Covid-19, no public services are planned. Cremation is under the care of Schrader, Aragon and Jacoby Funeral Home, 2222 Russell Avenue, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82001.
