Gerald P. Fisher
"Geep," as he was known since childhood - given his initials, G.P. - was in the fourth corridor of the Pentagon last Tuesday morning when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the building.
Gerald P. Fisher, a human resources consultant at Booz Allen & Hamilton, was 57.
He had worked for the firm for 14 years.
"He had several contracts at the Pentagon," said Alexis N. Radocaj, a family friend. "He'd be there a couple times a week."
Ms. Radocaj has postponed her wedding to Mr. Fisher's son, Jonathan.
Mr. Fisher enjoyed football games on the weekends, after spending the week on the road and working long hours, Ms. Radocaj said.
"He loved any kind of sport," Ms. Radocaj said. "He could show as much excitement for a neighbor's son's soccer game as the Super Bowl."
Mr. Fisher earned several degrees during his lifetime, including a doctorate in social work from the University of Pennsylvania.
He also taught at universities in Texas and Wisconsin during the 1970s and 1980s.
In the late 1960s, Mr. Fisher helped run a door-to-door bagel company called Marx and Hegel, Lox and Bagel, Ms. Radocaj said.
She described Mr. Fisher as "a child of the 1960s."
Born in New York, Mr. Fisher grew up in Los Angeles. He leaves his wife, Christine; his mother; his sister; a son and a daughter.
