In Memoriam

Ronnie Birge

Ronnie joined Glasgow Insurance Agency in August 1, 1983. He was a licensed Property & Casualty Agent handling the Life, Health, Farm and Commercial business for the agency. He will be remembered and sorely missed by us all.

David Ballard

David Ballard was an insurance producer for our agency for over 40 years as well as being a close personal friend. He was well known to everyone in the local counties as an insurance professional. He will be remembered for reaching out to everyone both personally and professionally. David left us with an abundance of memories of his laughter and the ability to live life to the fullest. From a very memorable fishing tournament to the fresh vegetables he brought from his garden; he always looked for ways he could give to others. We lost David in 2008 after a long battle with health problems, but we will not lose his inspiration to ‘Never Give Up’.
