Carl Hiser - Son, husband, father, uncle, retired automotive comptroller, friend, all around good man with a warm beautiful smile: all of the usual, normal platitudes for a man, who was anything but a usual man. He was generous, warm, stubborn, feisty and sometimes frustrating, but always a man of deep, never wavering faith in Jesus Christ and his never wavering faith in Jesus Christ and his never ending promise of salvation and eternal life.
Carl was born in Friant, California July 2nd, 1940 to Lenore and Otho Hiser, in a tent, because his father was an iron worker helping to build the Friant dam. He was raised in several cities but ended up in Fresno, California. The cities that out are Stockton, where he started school. Los Gatos, where he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior, and Fresno where he graduated from high school and 4 C's Commercial College.
In 1960 he married Janice Kemmerer and move to Madera, California where he worked as an accountant for the city. It was there that he was offered a job with an automobile dealership and entered a field that would become his specialty, ending with Joe Kerley Lincoln, Mercury, Jeep and Eagle for the last 28 years before retirement.
He was proud of his three beautiful daughters: Julie Friesen (Dale), Jennifer Quiring (Glen), and Jill Fazio (Paul, and was overjoyed when his eight grandchildren arrived and was even boys among them: Nicholas, Kathyrn and Ethan Friesen, Madison, Lindsay and Harrison Quiring, Alexandra and Mia Fazio. His grandchildren were a true delight and joy to him.
He served on many Church Boards, held many Church leadership positions, taught Sunday School (where the students, now adults still mention the donuts he brought every Sunday), worked with the moppets in M.O.P.s, in Murphys, and served on the board for the Capernaum Project. He had been a members of S.I.R.s in Murphys, and the Christian golf group, Links.
Hi retired in 2000, and proudly driving his red retirement Jeep, moved with wife Jan, to Forest Meadows, where he enjoyed golf and friends, new and old.
He was diagnosed with lung, bone and brain cancer on March 26th and passed away on April 17th, 2021, peacefully in his sleep. He tried to fight and did until he could fight no longer and Hospice came for his last week. He lived and died heroically.
