A Model Citizen

My deepest sympathies to you, Nancy and your family.  My sympathies also to all of us who have lost such a significant figure.There are positives and negatives to living in small communities like Deer Park.  It could be argued that there are fewer opportunities for young people than might be found in larger towns and cities with larger schools and budgets.  But from the beginning of my association with Ken Fisher which dates back to 1963 (unbelievable as it may sound) I noticed a man who was seemingly unmoved by our population or budget.  Without fanfare or hyperbole, Ken Fisher inspired in all of us the expectation that we not only could do it, but that we will “Of course” do it.  He did this all with kindness, fairness and unshakeable class.In a small town like Deer Park a person has the opportunity of seeing first hand what a model citizen is. That’s definitely one of the positives. Thank you, Ken Fisher for choosing to live in our little community.  You were a wonderful model for all of us.

    Thanks you for your post. I feel so blessed because, like many of us we lived in a small town with all the benefits but also able to be apart of a musical program that thought and performed “big”. I also have the wonderful honor of calling him “Dad”.

    Thank you for sharing and I look forward to visiting with you in the future.
