How the Sad Loss of a Sales Legend Can Turn to a Gain

Vale Sales Legend: The Great Bill Fitzpatrick and his Gift to You and Your Sales Results

I’ve come back early from my holiday to help arrange a funeral.Sales Legend Bill Fitzpatrick

My wife’s champion father died last Friday.

Sales Legend, the Great Bill ‘The Silver Fox’ Fitzpatrick passed away peacefully in his sleep – aged 76.


The week between the death of a loved one and the funeral is a twilight zone for the close family and friends left behind.

There is the shock, the sadness, the realisation of the hole in your life and the need to move forward and the importance of celebrating what was and the legacy they leave from their time on this planet.

As we go through photo albums preparing for the funeral we both laugh at all the fun memories and cry for the loss.

Tears amongst the smiles.

It is a time of family and close friends coming together.

All sharing this twilight zone together.

Some of you will know I have mentioned Bill in the past.

Bill was certainly no ordinary sales person.

He sold direct sales for Niagara Therapy for over 35 years.
