December 2013

We are saddened to report that William T. Walsh, MSFS, CLU®, ChFC®, CASL®, CAP®, passed away the evening of December 18th.

His support of professional education and The American College is particularly well-known in the Philadelphia area.  He was a Charter Member of the Golden Key Society and an ongoing contributor, fundraiser, speaker, and host of visiting alumni over his long career.

Walsh is a life member of the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), and was the first person honored by the MDRT as a best example of “The Whole Person” concept.

In 2002 Walsh received the Huebner Gold Medal, the highest award given by The American College.  The Huebner Gold Medal, named for The College’s founder, Solomon S. Huebner, is awarded to people who, through support and dedication to The College and its programs, have moved the institution forward in its mission.

An avid golfer, Walsh played on over 600 different courses both here and abroad and earned 37 club championships.

Walsh is survived by his wife Barbara, 15 children, 29 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren.

The American College extends its heartfelt condolences to the entire Walsh family.
