I had great conversations with Fishy, visiting him at Autumn Glen as well as on the phone. The last time he took me out for lunch indoors at Autumn Glen and it was like being in a 5 star restaurant. He and my mom, Renee were good friends. Back in the day he would give her rides home from work frequently .
I had great admiration and respect for Fishy. I will miss him immensely.
My condolences to the Sokoll family.
