Bernard Carter Fisk

AGE: 77 • Greenville

Bernard Carter Fisk "Bunny," 77, formerly of Greenville, Delaware, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 3, 2017 at Avow Hospice in Naples, Florida following a brief illness and months of declining health. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Alice Collins Fisk; his daughter, Ridgely Fisk Green, son-in-law, Eric Green, grandson, Emerson Green, and granddaughter, Vivian Green; and his son, B. Carter Fisk Jr., and daughter-in-law, Chauntelle Tibbals.

Bunny was born and raised in Greens Farms, Connecticut, the son of Arthur Lyman Fisk Jr. and Janet Hager Fisk, and later adopted by his stepmother, Emily Burchell Fisk. After losing his mother Janet at a young age, Bunny attended boarding school at Eaglebrook School and Brooks School before enrolling at Yale University, where he earned a Masters in Electrical Engineering in 1961. Bunny and Alice met in Bermuda and married a year later, in 1965. Soon after that, Bunny started working at Xerox, and his job there took the couple (then family) to Rochester, New York and Dallas, Texas. The family then moved to Greenville, Delaware, where they lived for more than 30 years in their home on Owl's Nest Road. In 2013, Bunny and Alice moved to Naples, Florida to enjoy their golden years in the sunshine state, where Bunny enjoyed wearing shorts every day.

Bunny loved food (both cooking it and eating it), gadgets, the New York Giants, the Yale bulldogs, telling stories (the best ones multiple times), Jim Croce's music, and non-fiction books on the history of war. But most of all, he loved his family. From supporting Alice's passions, most recently her alma mater, Doane Academy, to taking Ridgely to horse shows nearly every weekend, to coaching Carter's soccer teams, Bunny's life revolved around his family.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 6th at 2:30 pm in the Chapel of the Holy Innocents at Doane Academy, 350 Riverbank, Burlington, NJ 08016. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Bunny's name to Eaglebrook School, Brooks School, Yale University, or Avow Hospice.
