I heard through my sister Bill Fagenson recently passed away. Although I have not seen him in 20 plus years, I was saddened by the news. Bill was a happy, soft spoken and all around good person. My fondest memories include him taking me bowling at Oak Park Lanes, fishing on the lake where he and Harriet built their new home on Middlebelt Road and weekend afternoons at their residence near Dewey School with Don always playing an instrument. He was my father Sidney's lifelong friend. I will cherish the picture of he and Harriet lighting a candle at my Bar Mitzvah in 1972. You would be hard pressed to find anyone say anything disparaging about him.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Fagenson at the Michigan Jewish Sports Hall of Fame dinner last September, then by chance running into him at a restaurant the next night. We had a great talk both nights - my father was also a teacher, then later a principal in the Detroit Public Schools. He was a wonderful gentleman, and I also enjoyed meeting Don and the rest of the family. RIP.
