In memory of Allan Flader

We are all saddened by the passing of Allan. He was a very special person, exceptional financial advisor, great leader and friend to all he knew. Allan leaves behind a hole in our hearts that will never be healed. We admired and respected his professionalism at work, his dedicated service to the community, for the care he extended to his clients and for the love that he showed to his family and friends. Allan was enormously proud of his work, and his team is dedicated to carrying on his legacy. Our sympathies go out to his wife, Katherine, his family, and all who loved him like we did. He will be forever remembered for his kindness, his generosity and his spirit of true compassion.
