**PLEAES NOTE CHANGE IN TIME – FUNERAL WILL BE HELD ON FRIDAY AT 11 AM AT OUR SAVIOR’S LUTHERAN CHURCH – RESCHEDULED DUE TO WEATHER
Herbert Todd Fleischer passed away peacefully, January 6, 2018 at the Sandford Hospital on Broadway surrounded by family.
Herbert Todd Fleischer was born to Ella and Herb Fleischer, and was welcomed into this world on November 6, 1958. He lived in Blanchard for over 30 years, where he learned to tend bar and then relocated to Hillsboro where he did so at the A&R. Having been born with a deck of cards in his hand, he was a natural to deal blackjack when gaming began. Herb attended Hillsboro Elementary, and graduated from Hillsboro High, and was a true Burro fan his entire life. He received a communications degree from Crookston Jr. College. His extensive knowledge of intertwined family histories was particularly dear to his heart, and he enjoyed sharing this with whomever he met and became a beloved figure in the town of Hillsboro where his authenticity and kindness earned him a place in the hearts of those who knew him. He was a devout Christian his entire life and active in the Lutheran Church. Other loves were Bison games and tailgating, listening to oldies rock and roll, pinochle playing (which included two state championships), and working at the golf course where he especially enjoyed ladies’ day, and of late, playing poker.
Herb endured multiple physical disabilities, but this never prevented him from appreciating and enjoying the gift of life. He cherished the relationship he had with his immediate and extended family, and they will deeply miss and always remember him. He was truly a good man!
Herb is survived by his two sisters, Mary Jane Wright and Patricia Fleischer, and nephew Ronald Holmes.
Memorials can be donated to the National Juvenile Diabetes Foundation in Herb’s name.
