I was a sports writer at the Constitution (1962-64) when I first met Furman. At a football game early in 1962, Furman sent me down to the field a couple of minutes before the game ended and later he chewed me out for not being at midfield when the two coaches would meet to shake hands. He was a great mentor and a master wordsmith with his column writing. As for my failure to catch the coaches' handshake after the game, he just explained "what if one of the coaches slugged the other one. That, not just the game, would have been your story."

As the youngest son of AJC sports writer Bill Robinson, I have fewer memories of Bisher than my fortunate siblings. But his presence made an indelible impression on me from a young age. Not only was he a master wordsmith, but a wonderful man and a gifted storyteller. He could command the attention of a room and hold it firmly, no matter how lengthy and tediously detailed the story. Thank God his legend is forever recorded in the annals of the Deep South and its rich sports heritage. He will be sorely missed but honorably kept alive by his grand talent and his kind heart.

We look forward to honoring your memory tomorrow. Such a great man and a great life!

I am one of the lucky ones who grew up in the church that Furman attended with his boys in Atlanta. After moving to Chicago as an adult, I always treasured seeing him back at Northwest Pres or sharing an email about the Braves. Love and condolences to Linda and Monte.

I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mr. Bisher. I worked at the AJC in the early '60s, and a few times was called upon to take dictation from him when he needed some letters typed. I'm glad I was given this opportunity to know him, and learn from him, as I knew nothing about sports at the time. I remember one in particular "Skywriters Tour", which he graciously explained.
He will be greatly missed.
My Deepest Sympathy to his family.
May God comfort you and give you strength.
