In Memory

Chris Fisher

Perhaps symbolically, Chris passed away on Thursday, September 6, 2007, on the first day of school in South Pasadena, bringing to mind Alice Cooper's popular rock anthem when we were in high school, "School's Out."

Chris was a well-respected musician, a lifelong South Pasadena resident and a great guy, who was well-loved by his family and friends.  He struggled with a disease called Multiple Atrophy Disorder with complications from diabetes.

Chris leaves his lovely wife, Lynn, and their beautiful daughter, Natalie, a SPHS grad who attends UC Santa Cruz.

His friends have established the Chris Fisher Trust in memory of Chris to assist in Natalie's college education.

I miss you Chris. I couldn't keep up with you, but it doesn't mean I wasn't impressed!

I remember the day that Duane Allman died. Chris and I both stayed home from school, listened to the Allman Brothers Band, partied a bit and dreamed a bit. We knew instinctively what was important that was paying tribute (well missing school was a good incentive too).....

I think many of us have some gratitude for those days. I pay tribute to the parties and friendships.... the brain cells can't be replaced, even some of the losses can't be undone, but the friendships, camaraderies and memories can't be replaced either.

Tribute to Chris and so many good times. SP '70-'75

I remember you and I thumbed our way to Yosemite to hook up with Stuart,Rudy and some others who were working at on site for some catering company. You get to know a person when you have the fortune to travel with him... We had few journeys - It was good to know you... see you on the other side
