Today it is one year that are you gone dad. We all miss you so much, but know you are in a better place looking down at our family. Mom is doing ok.

Now this book closes and mom will have these memories of all the years. Love you dad. Deb xoxoxo

4 months today you are gone Dad. It still doesn't seem real. We all miss and love you. Baby Logan is just about walking. I just wish you could have known him longer. Love Deb
Well dad today is my birthday. mom sent me a beautiful card. What is missing is you. Just not the same. You would call, or come see me. I wasn't ready for all of this but you are not suffering. Love you Dad. Deb
Dad I know that the last few hours we spent talking that you were worried about mom being taking care of. You would be so proud of Pat. He is taking such good care of mom. Painting, new carpet and is working so hard. He is so good to her so I know that you are smiling down at him. I talked to him and he was so excited and wants mom to have it good. I am proud of him too. See dad you and mom did raise us well. Mom and Pat really miss seeing you sitting out on your porch. We all miss and love you dad. Gabby saw me crying and gave me a big hug and said grandma I miss pappy. I told her that you knew she was there with you at the hospital. It isn't getting any easier yet dad. Deb
Happy 80th birthday dad. I only wish you would have made it. Last night hearing that song Your daddy's home really got to me. I ended up in tears. As a little girl I was always so excited when you would come home from work. I miss you so much dad but I have you and many memories. Love you .
Happy Birthday Bill I know you wanted to make it out to your 80th but it just didn't work out that way we miss you Love Joan
Dear Mr. Fistler, On behalf of Dr. Warren and staff, let me extend our deepest sympathy to your family. Deb informed us that you left us several months ago and what a sad loss it was. I understand our families had the firefighter profession in common as my Dad, too, was also a fireman for many years prior to retirement. So..."hats off" to all the great men who did so much to help so many. Deb & family... may you find peace & strength in your hearts and remember that your Dad will live on within you always. Luv, laine
2 months dad and I still can't believe you are gone. Bill and I sat here talking about some great times thinking we fooled you too. You were too smart. Love you dad.
Rest in peace with the angels Pappy, you will never be forgotten. I love you. Grandson Joe.
Merry christmas Bill it wasn't the same without you luv u always
Merry Christmas Dad. It is just not the same. We all love and miss you. RIP. Love ya, Deb.
Dad, see all the pictures, memories and all they city did in recognizing your. You should be so very proud. We are. You mad an impact on so many people's lives. Work, the war, home , your jobs. You were outstanding in eveything you did. we are so proud to be you family. Love and miss you and hope you are looking from heaven and seeing all this. Oh how you were respected. your Phillies daughter.
Our family is so glad that Peggy Rea took the time to look through dad's guest book. Yes Peggy he served our country, was a dedicated fireman who risked his life for the City of Easton, and worked many jobs to support 6 children so mom could stay at home and raise us. things were not always easy but I have no regrets on our upbringing and all that my mom and dad taught us and passed on to us. They both worked hard for everything we had. Christmases were always so wonderful. Dad was sick for many years and no one could have taken better care of him as my mom. I don't know how she even did it. Dad loved my mom, his children, grandchildren and the great children. He was so proud of his family. No matter how much our family endured my parents were married 58 years and that says a lot. He is now at peace in heaven and he holds a special spot for the day when mom joins him. Holidays will be hard. you think he will be sitting on his porch or the phone will ring and off goes his voice box. Many tears. Mom was one strong lady that was always there for him. Thank you so much for your kind words. Debbie Fistler Markert Daughter.

Well dad wed night 11/28 Easton City Council presented mom and your family with a beautiful recognition for all you dedication to the Fire Dept for 27 yrs. and retiring as Deputy Fire Chief head of operations and inspections. many remembered you going into city hall. some we grew up with and were so sorry to hear of your passing. We were so proud that the honored you. See I always told you that you were appreciated and love. You sacrificed for your country, the city and your family. You dad were a true hero. Mom cried seeing just how many truly appreciated your dedication and hard work. I chose to speak. I thanked City Council for having us and the Fire Dept for that amazing ceremony they gave you and the Chief making sure you were buried in your fire house uniform. Oh Dad what memories it brought back as you looked so good. I think that you are smiling down from heaven to see all that truly did notice and love you. We miss you so much. I go to pick up the phone and then realize I won't be able to talk to you. This night was for you dad and congratulations as no one deserved that anymore than you. Mom, Pat, Me and Bill got to be a part of it.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
