Every January 1st, I download a summary of the balances for all of my Vanguard mutual funds. I look it over and then always say out loud, "Thank you again, Jack Bogle!" Such a wonderful human being. We won't see his equal in the finance industry for a long time, if ever.

When I had to quit work at 53yo because of injury,I was very happy I followed Jack Bogles principals of investing.

Instead of going to the bar with rest of the crew on our layover (mostly) I read his books and my employer just happened to offer a Vanguard 401k.

Many thanks to the wise and kind gentlemen for sharing his thoughts. A life well spent helping others help themselves.

It is probably linked somewhere in this topic, but is worth repeating:

John C. Bogle, A look back at the life of Vanguard's founder | Vanguard

As an investor based in Canada it took me quite awhile to discover his message and for a variety of tax reasons I don't necessarily adhere to it for my own accounts, but I've come to fully appreciate his efforts and try to make sure I convey the simplicity of his approach to any and all who will listen.

I had the pleasure of meeting him and having him sign books at one of the annual Bogleheads conferences. A true gentleman who is missed.
