John L. Fisco, 84, born Oct. 1, 1935, passed away in Lewistown at the Central Montana Medical Center on Dec. 17, 2018.

John was born in Roundup and attended school there until graduation. John was quite the athlete in high school. He also

worked for his dad in construction and in the oil fields. He then enlisted in the Marine Corp., but due to a knee injury from high school and a bad surgery, it got the best of him and he was honorably discharged.

On to Auburn, Washington to be with his family, at which time he worked for the water department. He married Barb, his wife for 60 years. They had three children, Debbie, John IV, and Rick. The family made a move to Packwood, Washington by Mount Rainier, where he went to work on the Alaska Pipeline for two to three years. After the children graduated from high school, he decided to come back home, then moved to Lewistown in 1997.

John enjoyed his years in Lewistown. He, and sometimes Barb, would explore some of the places he used to go to, and new ones, too. He loved to golf, fish and hunt. He particularly enjoyed setting up hunting camp. He loved to play pool and was on a pool team and especially loved to challenge his friends at the game. Gardening was a passion and he grew some nice veggies. He enjoyed retirement here at home.

He is survived by his wife Barb, children; Debbie of Oregon and John IV, Kirkland, Washington and Rick, Arlington, Washington, three grandchildren, Sheena, Riley and Karlie, one great-granddaughter, McKenna, a niece Cindy and a nephew Mike and their children.

There will be a private burial in Roundup at the old cemetery. He will be laid to rest with his grandfather, John L. Fisco I, born 1863 and died 1920, the first sheriff of Musselshell County.

He will truly be missed by his family, and those who knew him. “A really good guy.”



Do you think the 2020 census will show that Lewistown is growing or shrinking?
