Please accept my sincere condolences.  Your Dad was my supervisor at the time he retired from Vanguard and he was an awesome and enjoyable man to work with.  We had some good times on the Philip's team and he was greatly missed when he retired. You have my deepest sympathy.

So very sorry for your loss.  I had the privilege of meeting and working with Bill at Vanguard.  His sense of humor certainly brightened many days as did his stories about his "pontoon" adventures.  Bill had a unique way of putting things in the right perspective.  My thoughts are with you all.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of  your family  and friends. Bill and I are not only good friends and Lodge buddies,  but we worked together at Mutual of Omaha Insurance Co.  When he and Ron Bond went to Vanguard I used to tell them the only reason they made it there was due to my training.  Bill and Ron had a great sense of  humor(but it was the truth).  We were also good hunting buddies. I could tell many stories about our friendship but my focus is to let his family know he was a very exception man. I enjoyed my company with him in any capacity we shared with very fond memories. May Gods healing GRACE be with you all.

Please accept my sincerest condolences.  I worked with Bill for many years at Vanguard.  Bill was a great business partner, always made my job easier, and an even better person.  I always enjoyed Bill's sense of humor.  I know his Vanguard family really missed him when he retired so I can only imagine how the family is feeling today.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.
