    We all have lost a good friend but the memories will always remain. The day's at center pier watching him pearl trying to catch a wave and later becoming surf champion to the day's on the sea working the party boats where he would challenge us to a contest of who tied the best bimini twist(his were top notch)to when he began his charter business. We will always remember you Fish.

    I am only 8 years old. You may not know me but I have been Fisher's little brother for the past six years when Fisher's mommy and daddy adopted me. I did not know him when he surfed, but I know he can fish. He took me fishing at least four times a week and I would catch fish and Fisher would get mad. My brother has taught me how to skate board at CB skate park. Watch out I want to be just like my brother. I love you Fisher and will never forget about you and the things you have taught me. Love, Ty-Ty.

    Fisher will be greatly missed . I remember the first time i met Fish .I was a little grom. He was a lifeguard at the time,i believe. and i was getting out of the water at PW from some hurricane swell . he was in the lifeguard jeep. and i don't even remember what he said. But it made my day that he even spoke to me. when we were surfing he'd like to have mini contests to try and make us all better. He was an idol to all us groms growing up. Sad Day. Rest in Peace
