Local Legend Jim Fisk leaves behind many smiles
The news today that Jim Fisk passed away brought back many great memories. Jim was best known for his time on the Freddie Freihofer Show shown daily on WRGB.
Like many my age who grew up in the area I had the privilege of appearing on the local hit show and had my chance to squiggle. Even today a memory hangs in our kitchen.
If you needed bread of other delicious Freihofer baked goods you would hang the sign in your window. The sign let the delivery man know to stop his horse or truck at your house. This is a special keepsake that my wife Cindi knew was special to many of us.
If you click on the photo you can see the larger size and perhaps you can pick me out. I’m the naughty one with his hands on his ears and tongue sticking out.
After his television career on Freddie Freihofer Jim went on to create the local company JIMAPCO. You’ll notice the JIMAPCO logo on most of the maps used in our area.
While my thoughts today are mostly all the great memories I had of Freddie Freihofer they’re also with Jim’s family and friends.
