Lorry driver Dalius Matulaitis, of Rectory Gardens, Wisbech, was charged with causing the death of Mr Fisk by dangerous driving and seriously injuring Mr Fisk's seven-year-old daughter.
He made his first appearance via video link from Martlesham police investigation centre.
No plea was entered because the accusation of death by dangerous driving can only be heard by a crown court.
Magistrates denied an application for bail. He was remanded in custody until his next hearing which will be before Ipswich Crown Court on August 24.
Cards should be sent to Jacee via 26 Broadfields Close, Gislingham, Eye, Suffolk, IP23 8HY.
