Dear Fisher Family~
It is with great sadness that I send this email. I worked indirectly with Tony at The Christ Hospital. My position was to assist individuals with disabilities applying for jobs.
Tony was my go-to manager, always so caring and respectful of others.
We had many long talks about family and life. He spoke often of his family vacations and I could see how much he loved his family. May you all gain strength through your loving memories~

Dear Barb and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. My heart and prayers go out to you in your time of sorrow. Tony was a lot of things to many people and will be missed tremendously.

I came to realize his kindness and compassion while I was a dietetic intern in 2007, but one of my fondest memories of Tony was after I didn’t pass a pretty important test in 2008. Tony took time out of his day to sit down with me, let me express my frustration/disappointment, told me it was going to be okay and that I would pass it next time. He even topped it off with a hug of encouragement as he handed me a tissue to dry my tears.

We were truly fortunate to have such a man as a model in our lives. I know Tony loved the Lord and served Him faithfully so I rejoice knowing he is in Heaven, but it is also impossible to adequately express my sincere sympathy for your loss at this most difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead. Peace, prayers and blessings-Susie

I want to express my sincere condolences to Tony’s entire family. I counted Tony as a good friend here at The Christ Hospital. I got to know Tony over the psst 4 years and enjoyed our lunchtime conversations about our families and our non-work activities. I could tell Tony really loved his family. We will miss him and my prayers are with you all.

Dear Fisher Family – I want to express my sincere condolences for your loss. I had the pleasure of knowing Tony when I was a dietetic intern at TCH in 2001-2002. Shortly after 9-11 my boyfriend (now husband) was deployed. I fondly remember numerous conversations I had with Tony regarding my husband’s deployment and he always gave me optimism. When my husband returned home from deployment, he met with Tony to thank him and presented him with a Military Police Challenge Coin. He was an extraordinary and will truly be missed. May fond memories and prayer help to consol you during this difficult time. Rob & Suzanne Smith

I will continue to pray for peace for your family.

Mark, I am very saddened to hear of your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.

With deepest sympathy,

I will always remember Tony singing, “Against the Wind” at the dietetic intern graduation on July 15th of 2010. He was by far one of my favorite preceptors during the internship. He will be dearly missed! My thoughts and prayers go out to the Fisher family.

I urged Dave to go to Men’s night at Burbanks back in 2009. He came home talking about you, and that you were in the Army in Germany the same time Dave was in the AF at Ramstein.

I will miss hearing your gentle voice at church, and miss getting you a bottle of water as soon as you sit down at small group.

Your children are amazing, proof they had a fabulous Mom and Dad.

You are missed, friend. I anxiously await the day I learn why God brought you home when he did.

I will always remember Tony’s kindness. (I was a dietetic intern at TCH in 2001.) He put the Lord first and encouraged me in my ministry. My thoughts go out to his family at this time of sudden loss.
