As a former next door neighbor of the Angers in Stamford, Connecticut I would echo Dave Moore's comments and also add that Mr. Angers was fine man who along with his terrific wife, Karen, raised a wonderful family. God bless you all!

Cliff and I worked together at Colgate-Palmolive in the mid-1960's. We worked together in New Products and launched Punch detergent. Sadly it did not fair well in the marketplace. One of the bright spots was working with our Account Manager, Burt Sugar at Street and Finney Advertising. Probably one of the best advertising persons I've ever met. Cliff and I enjoyed the experience. Cliff and I did have our differences, but to be expected as he received his MBA from U of Michigan and I got mine from Michigan State. Cliff was a very bright marketing man.
