I am very sad to learn that my good friend and fellow Naval Aviator has passed away. Dick and I shared adjoining desks in Gulfstream Flight Test for several years, where he was respected and admired by all of us. He was a wonderful man, a true gentleman, and one of the finest pilots I have known, with a steady hand and a calm, professional demeanor. He is greatly missed!

I extend my condolences to the Fischer family on the recent loss of your father. Please know that I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and may you be comforted by their memories and the love they shared with their children.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.

Dear Fischer Family, Dick Fischer was one of the finest men and pilots that ever walked the face of this earth. I have talked with a number of pilots + people that worked with him, we all say the same thing. Lots of fond memories of flying + trips on the road. I had a check ride with Dick what seems like a 1,000 years ago. When the ride was over I had been through the wringer, jokingly I mentioned that now I know what it's like to be crucified. I'll never forget his infectious smile + impeccable hand writing on my new license when he handed it to me. He said this, "Harry you are ready to exercise the privileges of this license". With deepest sympathy, Harry G. Butler III US Navy SEAL, former Captain Gulfstream Aerospace, retired

Since death wasn't God's originally purpose for mankind it is very painful to deal with but please read what the Bible holds out for us at Revelation 21 3,4

It was my good fortune to work and fly with Dick during his years at Gulfstream. He was a perfect gentleman, a superb pilot, and a humble hero who inspired us all. Very sorry for your loss. John S.
