Fredrick Roger Pfister, departed this life on February 26, 2021, after a long illness and recent surgery.
A life-long educator, Fred was loved by students and faculty alike. He also edited the “The Ozarks Mountaineer” magazine for a number of years, was a supporter of the Taneyhills Library and was a popular speaker for clubs and conventions. His talks on “weather windys,” Ozark placenames and his one-man depiction of author Walt Whitman for the Missouri Humanities Council were just some of Fred’s many chances to bring his talents to life.
He was a great storyteller but always willing to listen; he was intelligent but humble about his beautiful mind. Fred always made the person he was listening to feel like no one else was more important to him at that particular moment—and at that particular moment, that was the truth.
Memorials in Fred’s honor may be made to the Taneyhills Library, 200 S. 4th Street, Branson, MO 65616.
“(His) absence is like the sky, spread over everything.” —C. S. Lewis “A Grief Observed”
