Nichlas "Donny" Fisher (Hardin) Jr. Obituary

Nichlas "Donny" Fisher (Hardin) Jr., also known as Nick, age 22 of Elkhart, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 11, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of joy, laughter, and exceptional talent. Donnie was born May 13, 2001, in East Chicago, Illinois.  Later, his family moved to the Elkhart area, and he graduated from Elkhart Central High School. He later took a position with South Bend Airport where his hard work and dedication to his job was recognized by his superiors and those he worked with.

Surviving are his parents: Mother, Sarah Joi Hardin-Rodriguez, his Pops, Blanca Rodriguez, both of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Surviving as well are his siblings Stephen Williams, Gwendolyn Hardin, Jeremiah Hardin, LaRoy Hardin and NiCara Rodriguez-Hardin, along with his fiancé Abbigail Cummings and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Donny was a gifted violinist whose music touched the hearts of all who had the privilege of hearing him play. His passion for the violin was evident in every note, and his performances were a testament to his dedication and skill.

Beyond his musical skills, Donny was known for his incredible sense of humor. His laughter was infectious, and he had a remarkable ability to bring joy to those around him. Donny found a creative outlet for his humor through his YouTube channel, where he shared comedic content that brightened the lives of many. His ability to make people laugh and his incredible sense of humor will be remembered by friends, family, and followers alike.  He also loved spending time with all his pets. His love for nature, animals, and the universe was like no other. He spent many nights star gazing into the heavens above.

Donny was a caring and loving young man who cherished his family above all else. His bond with his siblings was unbreakable, and they shared countless moments of joy and laughter together. One of their favorite pastimes was playing card games, with Uno being a particular favorite.

Although his time on Earth was cut short, Donny's spirit will live on in the memories of those who were fortunate enough to know him. His laughter will echo in the hearts of his friends, his music will linger in the air, and his love for family will continue to inspire. His laughter and music will forever echo in our hearts.
