Condolences & Memories (9 entries)

  • Mr (Bev) Fisher was my baseball coach for several years in the RRVSL and led our team to being named the league's 'National Champs' in 1975 and 'American Finalist' in 1974. The trophies from these two events still sit proudly in my office. Mr Fisher had a significant and positive impact on me and the players he coached. He didn't just teach us how to play baseball. He taught us important fundamentals of a successful life, such as being a team player, the importance of discipline, practice and hard work, perseverance and having fun. I'm glad I was able to tell him this in person a few years ago at his home, and to thank him for being my coach and showing confidence in me. - Posted by: Lawrence (Baseball Player) on: May 30, 2020

  • Sorry for the late reply. Live in Phoenix and just heard about Bev's passing from fellow employees from Stantec. Knew Bev for my first 25 years as an Engineer. Bev hired me back in 1980 at I D Engineering, trained and taught me a lot of great lessons. Funny how those first and early ones still stay with you after almost 40 years. Thxs for the great advice, I owe you Bev - Posted by: Victor Neufeld (Friend and fellow employee) on: Feb 22, 2019

  • Offering my special condolences from the Tom Lester family to Brent Fisher and his family and friends. Bev Fisher was soft spoken full of knowledge for his family, recreation passions, and work but always worth listening to and you came away that engaging in conversation was always worthwhile. I was lucky to experience all 3. God bless and rest in peace. - Posted by: Daniel T Lester ( Tom Lester family) (family friend (Brent Fisher)) on: Feb 13, 2019

  • Our condolences to the Simone and the Fisher family. Our prayers and thoughts are with you at the very sad time... May God bless you all... From the Costa family... - Posted by: Carol costa (Friends withSimone) on: Feb 11, 2019

  • I have many great memories of Bev and his family. He loved the things he loved and took great care of each, whether it was a family member or a baseball diamond. He spoke soft but it was always worthwhile listening. I learned many things during those conversations. He will be missed dearly by those who were close to him. - Posted by: Vince and Jan (Friends of the family ) on: Feb 11, 2019

  • I was first introduced to "Coach Fisher" in 1980, as a member of the Elmwood Giant's Junior Baseball team. Who could forget the championship celebration at Bev and Faye's home in North Kildonan that year! Someone's teeth (initials C.C) were actually flushed down a toilet that night! Fast forward 26 years where I had the pleasure of being on the coaching staff of the Winnipeg Wolf along with Bev in 2006. I was able to witness first hand how a new generation of players benefited from Bev's deep knowledge of the game of baseball, all delivered by his calm patient demeanor. I will be left with the fondest memories of the time spent in Bev's presence and will always associate class and respect to his legacy. Cherish the Memories. - Posted by: Glen Hunter (Friend, Player, Fellow Coach) on: Feb 11, 2019

  • Met Bev when I was about 25 years old. Did a lot of jobs under his engineering direction. In later years helped him him keep the diamond beautiful at his love and joy. Thanks for all your guidance Bev. It was a pleasure to work with you. - Posted by: Ken palson (Mentor guide in my construction life) on: Feb 09, 2019

  • We have had the great pleasure of living beside Bev and Faye on Henderson, and have so many wonderful memories of our times together with Bev. Bev's soft-spoken dry humor was a great tonic to all the occasions when he helped with the foundation, sink hole, pavers, and tree issues that arose from time to time. It was always a treat to see Bev amble over to our property to make sure everything was ok; and then for us to enjoy a beer together by the river. Bev was a wonderful man and we shall always cherish our times together. David and Marion Schmidt - Posted by: David and Marion Schmidt (Friend and Neighbor) on: Feb 09, 2019

  • I have lots of great memories of growing up with Brent, a lot of time was spent with friends at the Fisher home. My fondest memory of Bev was the numerous Saturdays him, Keith Crone and my father spent playing pool and having a few libertarians in our rec room. Condolences to the family, memories last forever. - Posted by: Cathie Mauro (Schurko) (Friend) on: Feb 09, 2019
