Stanley Fishback Obituary

Stanley Wayne Fishback, 76, of Salem, died Saturday, September 23, 2023, at Washington Square Healthcare Center in Warren, Ohio.


He was born October 16, 1946, in East Liverpool, Ohio, son of the late Stanley and Daisy (Spencer) Fishback.


Stan served in the US Army during the Vietnam War and was honorably discharged in 1969. He worked for several years at Summitville Tile and doing odd jobs.


Stan enjoyed the outdoors gardening, lawn work, planting gardens allowing the neighbors to partake in the vegetables that he grew. He loved fishing, boating, kayaking, jet skiing, BBQing and family events at his Berlin Lake cottage and throughout the year at his residence during the holidays. He enjoyed hunting and had special hunting experiences with his late nephew Nicholas Gough SR.


Stan and his wife, Charlotte, shared a passion for ballroom dancing and dancing competitions. Stan took private dance lessons, competed in the studio showcases. He and Charlotte would go to 99% of the studio events to support their dance family if they didn’t compete. He also enjoyed going around to various events to listen to various bands, shows and dancing events throughout the area.


Stan had no children and would always, always stop, get at their level to talk or acknowledge them. The closest thing to children was a very close family friend that they did a “cabbage patch kid adoption” of Robyn Goldberg, Cleveland.


He always rode shotgun with Charlotte when she did real estate appraisals and other missions or adventures.


He is survived by his wife, Charlotte MJ Barcey-Fishback whom he married December 27, 2014, his sister; Margaret Hood, his sisters-in-law; Jean Gough and Kathy Miller, his brothers-in-law; Harold Barcey, George Miller, George Whitten, and Mathew (Lori) Whitten, his nephews; William Kruel, John Edmund JR, Fred Gough JR, Mike (Stacie) Gough, Allen (Danielle) Barcey, Jackson (Angel) Barcey, Joseph (Melissa) Barcey, and Richard Barcey, his nieces; Karen (John) Edmunds, Julie (Joe) Cronin, Emily (David) Miller, and Summer (Samir) Amado, his great nephews; Aiden Cronin, Lawrence Cronin, Michael Gough, and Nick Gough JR, his great nieces; Bella Cronin, Luci Kruel, Lani Kruel, Sarah (Jake Morris) Maulis, Elisha Whitten, Elizabeth (Dale) Peebles, Alanis (Blaine Vandino) Whitten, and Lindsey Gough, his great-great nephews; Braden Maulis,  Kai Amado, Eldon Maulis, Hanson Maulis, Alex Parisi Whitten, and Jensen Peebles, his great-great nieces; Morgan Gough, Vera Maulis, Mavie Morris, and Claire Peebles, as well as several other great-great nieces and nephews, and his beloved toy poodle, “Little-bit” (aka by Stan as Bit or Tidbit).

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brothers; Charles Spears, William Baker, and Harry Fishback, his sister; Ruth Kruel, his brother-in-law; Fred Gough SR, and his nephew; Nicholas Gough SR.


Celebration of life memorial service will be planned for a later date at our Berlin Lake Cottage since this was an important facet of Stan’s life.


Arrangements were made by the Greenisen family at the Arbaugh-Pearce-Greenisen & Sons Funeral and Cremation Services of Salem.


We want to include and give special thanks to our dance families, especially our dance family at Pure Ballroom Dance Studio in Howland, and our staff at Towne and Suburban Realty. I could not have done this without the support from Susan Kilmer and Linda Courtney.
