Online Condolences for Paul Visscher ( December 24, 1923 ~ February 28, 2018)

March 16, 2018
We send our special sincere thoughts and prayers to the family. Paul was special as he delivered our first child (possibly his first delivery in private practice). Many hours were spent with Paul, Wendy and their young family in Bozeman. Great memories. Bill & Ramona Holt (Lolo, MT)

My sincere condolences to your family during this time. John 11:35 assures us that Jesus understands our pain during our loss and has the power to erase death forever. To find out more regarding the hope for the dead visit and search "death". — V. Webster (, MS)

March 08, 2018
My deepest sympathy to the Visscher family. My dad and Dr. Visscher were good friends and Doc was very gracious to accept my dad as a patient - wasn't a far reach since Don Borgeson aka Pepi the Clown never really grew up! Ernst, I know my dad had a place in his heart for you and I know that he would be saddened by your loss. I hope you continue to soar with the memories of you parents and my dad too! Janet Borgeson (Bozeman, MT)

March 07, 2018
Dr. Visscher was my pediatrician for a time back in the 1970s and a longtime friend of my parents Dr. William and Mary (Cathy) Dorgan. I will always remember him fondly as a most wonderfully kind and compassionate physician and individual of great integrity. My sincerest condolences to his children and grandchildren. — Diane Dorgan (Bozeman, MT)

March 05, 2018
It was a real blessing and joy to know and practice with Paul at Medical Associates in Bozeman and to continue our friendship over the years. What a true gentleman and such a gentle man. His gift to the children he cared for lives on in them and their families. — John Patterson, MD (Bozeman, MT)

March 03, 2018
Paul was my stepfather for 49 years. When our mother, Saralee, passed away on Jan 2, 2018 in Chandler, Arizona, it was a great comfort to talk to Paul. My thoughts and prayers are with him, his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. — Constance Currie (Phoenix, AZ)

March 02, 2018
To the Visscher Family, Please accept my sincere condolences. During this difficult time, may fond memories of your dear loved ones help to ease your sorrow. May the "peace of God that surpasses all understanding" strengthen you by means of His Word. (Philippians 4:7) — D Howard (, MD)

March 02, 2018
I will sincerely miss my friend Paul Visscher. I knew him through the Gallatin Gardeners Club, and enjoyed many conversations with him about his long and interesting life. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Frank Erickson (Bozeman, MT)
