      Sad News     

C.P.C.O. lost a one of a kind lady on Friday July 25th. Lara Fink passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer. This is very hard for me to have to make this announcement. If you knew Lara, you knew she was one of a kind, and I personally loved the lady dearly. She has worked in all aspects for C.P.C.O. and it is going to be very difficult to replace her.

In memory of Lara L Fink:

Hospice of NGMC
2150 Limestone PKWY
Suite 222
Gainesville, GA 30501-2559

Or you can do as I am going to do; make a check payable to Lara's daughter - Jenny Rodriguez (Jenny has been Lara's caregiver during this time). If you cannot attend the service on Friday please send any checks made payable to Jenny Rodriguez to CPCO Association of Georgia, P.O. Box 1166, Buford, GA 30515

Bill Hill

Mr. William Venson Hill, fondly known as Bill Hill, August, 25th 1934 – August 29th 2014was born in 1934.
He is survived by his wife of more than 40 years, Mary Ellen Hill, and their two daughters, Jade Hill Coston and Kimberly Hill Buckaloo. In addition, he is survived by William Hill, Jr., Vinson Hill, Beth Hill Wood, Phillip Hill, and five grandchildren.

Bill Hill was at the majority of our CPCO Conferences in Perry Ga. He was always one to answer any questions thrown his way, as he really wanted to make our business better and I feel he did just that. The bulk of his business career was with Orkin Exterminating. He started as a salesman and worked through the ranks as a branch manager, regional sales director, district manager, and Vice President of Sales. Mr. Hill received numerous accolades as a top performing salesman and manager. In addition to being a part of Orkin's prestigious President's Club, he was awarded Orkin's World Record for termite sales in 1994. He developed and authored Orkin's Sales Manual and trained hundreds of sales professionals. His career culminated with the ownership of the Gainesville, Florida Orkin Exterminating franchise.
As a local business owner, his passion became mentoring younger professionals. He was bestowed the 2012 Paul Hardy Mentoring Award through the Orkin Franchise Division. To support business professionals in a variety of industries, he initiated the Newberry Business Alliance with a mission of supporting and fostering the entrepreneurial spirit of current and future business owners in Newberry, Florida. He envisioned a business community of Go-Givers.
