James Charles Fey, of Sebastian, died Aug. 3, 2009. He was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and retired to Sebastian in 1992.
He became known as “The Fish Man” because he recycled thousands of 2-liter soda bottles by cutting and painting them to resemble fish. Hundreds of friends and neighbors were gifted with these fish over the years. Survivors include his wife of 62 years, June; six children; eight grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren.
A private Celebration of his Life will be held on Thursday. Arrangements by Strunk Funeral Home & Crematory, Sebastian.
