I never had the pleasure of being his student, but remember being the recipient of his happy smile and wave, or a friendly greeting so many times. I will miss him.

Thanks Mr Fisk You taught my brother Jay and me a ton. Arguing politics with you was the highlight of my time at BCHS. God Speed Mr Fisk. See you when we get there.

I was never fortunate to have Russ Fisk as a teacher in the classroom. But I did have his tutelage as a young boy growing up across the way on Morse Street in Dillon. Russ always had time for all the kids in the neighborhood and taught us with his example of what a true man is. His hard work, dedication to family, and love of the outdoors endeared him to all and no one walked away from Russ Fisk not having been a better person. I truly loved this man and thank him for all that he did for so many, including me.
