We are so sad that we had to say "goodbye" to yet another of the original EPB&B partners, Neil Baker who passed away on Friday, June 24th. Former EPB&B President, Neil Baker, was born and raised in Portland and graduated from Grant High School and OSU. He entered the insurance industry out of college and took a sales position with Universal Underwriters before training with Safeco Insurance and joining the Mathieson-Baker Agency in the mid 1960's. In 1968 Neil Baker and Bill Baden joined Gordo...n Powell and Warren Elliott to form what is now EPB&B. Neil received Safeco Insurance "Lifetime Award of Excellence" prior to his retirement in 2000. He served on the Board of Directors of the Sellwood Boys and Girls Club and was an Associate Board Member for the Oregon Petroleum Association. He volunteered to deliver Meals on Wheels and worked with OSU Alumni Association and The Beaver Club. He was a class act and great man who will be sadly missed. Information on services to follow.
