My condolences the East family. May God strengthen you all. Mr. East was a customer of my former State Farm agent for years. He just recently changed agents after my agent retired in 2019. Even though he was with another agent I would always check on him to make sure everything was going good. He will truly be missed because he had such an outgoing personality. He might have not been feeling his best but you would never know it. He was always positive about any situation. We all loved him but God loved him more.
