Stewart Markham Fish died of complications from COVID-19 on 5/1/2020 at the age of 58.  He attended Derby Academy, Hingham High School and Trinity College. He continued to enjoy learning and writing for most of his life as well as sailing, fishing, skiing, baseball, gardening and tennis. His love of wildlife and the marshes fueled his soul. He served in the United States Navy and continued to bring joy to his family and friends.  Despite having more than a reasonable share of life’s challenges, Mark personified the idea that happiness is all about your perspective.  A kind and gentle soul, to the very end, Mark always retained his intelligence, razor sharp wit, and enthusiasm for life.  He was a friend to the world and will be sorely missed.

He leaves behind his mother, Virginia Wadsworth Pomeroy of Hingham MA. He also leaves his brother, Charles Fish and his wife Dorinda from Stamford Conn, his sister Martha Ryan and her husband Jason and their children Aidan and Emma of Hingham MA, his stepsisters, Anne Pomeroy and her husband Peter from Philadelphia PA and Mary Dee Hennessey and her husband Michael and their two children from Red Hook, NY as well as his stepmother Beth Davenport Fish of Vero Beach, FL.  Mark was predeceased by his father Stewart Y. Fish and his stepfather, Richard W. Pomeroy.

A service will be held at a later date when we may gather in a manner befitting Mark’s memory.  In lieu of flowers please consider a memorial gift in Mark’s name to:
