Harry, I send my sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your beloved Father. I have wonderful memories of him crooning Bing Crosby songs (he actually sounded just like him!) as he drove us places in town when we were teenagers. May you all be at peace in the knowledge that he was a very special man who touched so many lives with his kindness.

I was lucky enough to consider Dr. Izbicki a friend as well as a client. He was a teacher, when I began my State Farm agency he challenged me and helped me better understand the products that I was selling. He was always asking questions that forced me to become a better agent. I always respected him for that. He made the world a better place. He will be missed.
