Richard John Fisher, owner of a dry-cleaning business for 40 years, died of cancer Monday at his Millersville home. He was 60.
Mr. Fisher operated Sparkle Cleaners, picking up and delivering dry cleaning to customers throughout Anne Arundel County and in neighboring communities.
"He was truly an independent contractor who literally didn't stop working until a few weeks before he died," said his wife of seven years, Mary Ann Fisher. "He was known all over the county."
