Notice of John's passing while living in Topeka came from a fellow classmate.

Johnny Fisher was an outstanding athlete and a fantastic singer. I met John at Crane Jr. High. He would bring the house down when he sang at assemblies! I think he sang professionally for a while in Chicago. We played football, basketball, track tegether. We were in Boys Glee Club and Choir. Johnny could run like the wind. He could do the hundred in 10 flat in Junior High!!  When we needed a touchdown..I'd call "35". That was Johnny. He'd go over Mike Tyree and into the end zone!! He was a great friend in school. I, unfortunately, only  saw Johnny time to time in adult life.
