Christopher Mark Fiscus succumbed to his battle with cancer on Aug. 21 at the age of 58 in Redding. He was born March 1, 1960, in Colorado Springs, Colo.
For more than 20 years, he delivered the mail for the U.S. Postal Service – first in Sacramento, and then in Redding – and was considered by many to be one of the top carriers.
He married the love of his life, Paula, on May 1, 1987.
Together they raised daughter Katerina Domke, sons Nick and Travis Fiscus, and nephew Brandon Cunha.
First and foremost Chris was a family man who deeply loved his wife, children and grandchildren.
He willingly assumed the role as a beloved, respected mentor for his nieces and nephews. He was extremely proud of his title of “Grandad” – and cherished spending time with his grandchildren; the light of his life: Beau, Austin, Reagan and Cole.
Chris loved the outdoors, and shared his passion of fishing, hunting and golf with his family. Camping with his loved ones was something he especially treasured. He would bring his guitar and play at camp, to the enjoyment of all. From an early age Chris was a gifted musician who grew into adulthood demonstrating great knowledge and appreciation for all kinds of music.
Chris was a veteran who served in the United States Air Force as a young man. He was a true patriot with a deep love of country. He also had a strong and loving relationship with God and loved Jesus.
He is survived by his wife of 31 years, Paula; mother Kathy Heaton; daughter Katerina Domke, her husband Joshua Domke and their two children Austin and Reagan. He is also survived by son Nick Fiscus, his fiancee Bree Harless and their boys, Beau and Cole; as well as son Travis Fiscus, nephew Brandon Cunha; and brothers Bob, Greg and Kent Fiscus. He was predeceased last year by brother Mike Fiscus.
