On Tuesday, July 4, Fred England, former Big "I" president, passed away with family close by. England served as president of the Big "I" in 1984 and received the Woodworth Memorial Award in 1978.
"The word 'legend' is overused, but in the case of Fred England, he's a Big 'I' legend in every respect," says Bob Rusbuldt, Big "I" president & CEO. "Fred was a true leader in the insurance industry, not just the Big 'I.' He was respected, dedicated and a big thinker who lead the Big 'I' and our members to a better place. We will always be grateful for Fred's leadership and vision."
