Robert Michael Bierly Obituary
November 17, 1933 - August 7, 2016 Robert Michael Bierly (Mike) passed away August 7, 2016 at the age of 82 with his wife and children by his side. He fought hard against Alzheimer's disease with the same grace and dignity that helped him succeed in life. Mike was a proud Buckeye from Columbus, Ohio, born to Janet and George Bierly on 11/17/33. He was predeceased by his older brother, George Bierly. After serving in the US Army during the Korean War, Mike graduated from Arizona State University and joined the workers compensation industry. In 1976 with 36 shareholders from the Annandale Golf Club bar, he started his own company, Bierly & Associates. Bierly & Associates was the largest Third Party Administrator in California for employers who chose to self-insure their workers compensation risk. He was a pioneer in the field who lead with integrity and kindness. Employees and clients were treated like family, and he had a lot of fun along the way. Mike was an avid antique shot gun collector and enjoyed bird hunting behind a couple of good dogs. With his polish and charm he could light up any room and still make everyone feel important at the same time. His positive outlook and generosity will be missed by all. R.M. Bierly is survived by his best friend and wife of 52 years, Anne Bierly; son, George Bierly (Pamela Roberts Bierly) of Laguna Niguel, CA; daughter, Paige Bierly Kutt (Edward Kutt) of Westlake Village, CA; and grandchildren; Parker Bierly, Jackson Bierly, Kate Bierly, Anne Kutt and Eddie Kutt.
