It is now 11 years that has passed and I have been employed by FTI and have heard so many amazing things of Sir John Templeton. This man has given so many so much with his wisdom and kindness. God Bless

John Templeton was primarily a man of great character, who was incidentally one of the world’s greatest investors. I was fortunate to attend the annual meetings of the Templeton Growth Fund while he was the primary speaker.

I do not know a day when Sir John was not part of my world. I met him in 1982 and was privileged to be at his 70th Birthday Party in the Bahamas.

I was an employee of Templeton Funds for many years and had the privilege of meeting Sir John on several occasions. He was a financial genius but dispite this he treated all his employees with courtesy and respect.

My condolences to his family. He will be missed.

An awesome christian man, who visited our church where he went as a young boy many times. My son who is 40 still has a dollar bill that Sir John autographed for him. Our deepest sympathy to his family. We celebrate his life with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
