like the wake spreading behind reflects the cut of the boat, these messages speak to the measure of the man. Roger's influence continues to spread exponentially, across generations. He is a big part of why so many of us find joy and wonder in the world around us. His wonder became our wonder. I owe much of what I know about the lakes and the rivers and the fish and the trees and the atoms and the galaxies to Roger. I understand my place in, my impact on and my responsibility to the environment because I had Roger as both teacher and friend. Fish on, Rog. May your bait box be full and your line ever taut. You live in all of us now.
Mr. Fisher was quite simply a "legend". A true educator who inspired me to also become an educator. I have so many fond memories of his Physics and Ecology classes at Northwood. He went above and beyond the curriculum to teach life lessons that are still with me 22 years later. My deepest condolences to his family...you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Fisher was my favorite teacher at NHS. He taught the hardest subjects in such a way that you got it. He demanded respect and you didn't dare mess around in his class. Every student should have a teacher like him in their lifetime to truly understand that a teacher can care for you and really "teach". You knew he loved what he was doing and had a real passion for it. I am so lucky to have had him! God Bless his family and may they be comforted in knowing how many people he touched in his lifetime. What a wonderful legacy!!!!!!

Deepest condolences to the Fisher family. A great man will be missed. I feel lucky to have know Roger thru my father and thru his son Mark. He will be missed a great deal.
Our deepest sympathies go to the Fisher family. Roger was a good friend. He was always good at settling me down when I took basketball too seriously. Great guy that will be missed.
