Robert Hartwell's Story
Robert Hartwell Fiske, 68, of Rockport, passed away on Monday, April 25 2016. Robert was born in Boston on March 5, 1948, the son of the late Robert H and Barbara W Fiske.
He is survived by his brothers, Bradford White Fiske and Bruce Cameron Fiske, a select group of precious friends, and his dog, Chuck.
His prepared statement of passage follows:
Robert Hartwell Fiske, owner and editor of the Vocabula Review since its genesis in September 1999, has died. Vocabula, I am sorry to say, will die along with him. My apologies. I have taken great pleasure in getting to know you, my readers. And I will miss you mightily. I wish you all an auspicious fate, a long-lived life. (Even though many people pronounce long-lived with a short i sound, the long i is correct. Long-lived derives from the word life, not the word live.)
