He was the founding president of the Eastern District of Wisconsin Bar Association. In April of this year, he received the group's Judge Myron L. Gordon Lifetime Achievement Award.
In recognition of the award, a Nathan Fishbach Student Development Fund was created at Marquette Law School by Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek.
Fishbach received his law degree in 1978 from Villanova University.
He is survived by his wife, Susan, and three sons, Jeffrey, Brian and Michael.
