His sister is a nun who lives in Munich. He told the German news agency dpa that she was able to talk to him on the phone before he died and they prayed together.
She said: “I can pray with him and tell him I will always be with him.”
Fischbacher’s long-term partner, Roy Horn, died in May from complications of COVID-19 at the age of 75.

The two returned to the stage on March 1, 2009 for their final performance, when they held a welfare performance for the Lou Ruvo Brain Health Center at the Cleveland Clinic. They said it raised $14 million.
The two sat down on “20/20” in 2019 to participate in “Siegfried and Roy: Behind the Magic”, a two-hour special program of their legendary career.
In May, before the death of Horn, the two shared the following messages of love and support to those affected by COVID-19:
