As we are sure you can understand, the passing of Dave Temple has left us in grief for our loss. However, Dave was one to make sure the ones he loved and his clients were always taken of. David never wanted to retire because he loved what he did. He considered so many of his clients his friends. We know many of his clients here have a history with David going back many years. When you love what you do and who you work with then it wasn’t work. We are so glad that he was able to do that until the end.
Alliance General and building relationships with clients has always been important to David. Alliance General was very important to Dave, and he has always aimed to provide a high-level of service to his clients since he opened the agency in 1982. We want to make it clear that this will not change.
Over 10 years ago, Alliance General merged with a sister agency, Absolute Insurance Agency, in Clive, IA. Absolute Insurance Agency was started by Jeff Eastvold over 12 years ago. Jeff had worked with Dave and Alliance General back in the early 1990’s and has over 25 years experience in the insurance industry. David and Jeff have worked together for many years, and David was Jeff’s mentor, friend, and like a father in many ways to Jeff. About 2 years ago, Jeff purchased Alliance General from David and Cheri, and has worked hard to provide the same level of service to our customers.
We want to reassure customers that Alliance General will stay open and we will continue to provide the same service that you are used to. Our office will remain open in the same location (319 Lincoln way, Ste 1, Ames, IA 50010) and our phone number will stay the same (515-232-9271). If you have stopped into the office over the past few years, or called into the office, you have most likely met and/or spoken with some of the agents that represent Alliance General and Absolute Insurance.
Alliance General will be closed at 3:30 on Thursday, July 18th, for visitation, and closed Friday, July 19th, for the funeral. We will have staff answering phone calls. The office will re-open on Monday with normal hours.
