My thoughts and prayers and prayers go out to the Fisher family. I knew Jack and his Dad when I lived in Plattsburgh. Lots of fond memories playing golf with his Dad at Bluff Point. A great family.

I met Jack in the 60's when I worked for his father. He was a gentleman then and remained so to the present. The world needs more Jack Fishers.
