    I am deeply saddened to be informing you of the death of Max Fisher. Max, who had been in Florida, was able to get back to his family in Michigan before he died and that was important to him as well as those he loved. Services will be held on Sunday in Detroit and college representatives will be present for those services.

    The commitment of Max Fisher and his family has been pivotal in the college’s development. Not only did Max provide financial support that acted as a catalyst for other significant giving but he also placed a consistent emphasis on the need to attract and support the highest quality faculty, staff and students. His concern for our ability to then take these elements and reflect them in leading edge programming served as a constant reminder of our mission. Indeed, the values that are at the core of our brand can be seen reflected in the career and life of Max Fisher. He has been a model for those who are committed to making a positive difference in the world around them. While his institutional impact has been remarkable, on a personal level I will miss him as a close advisor and friend.

    I wanted you to know of this development as soon as possible. I know you join me in offering condolences to the Fisher family on their loss.

    Joe

    Sad to hear this. He's from my hometown (Salem), so I'll post anything tomorrow assuming it's in the paper.
