Who better than me? Former publisher John Bart writes own death notice

Bart as a guest on BNN
The founder of Canadian ShareOwner magazine, John Bart, has died of cancer and took the unusual step of writing his own death notice in today's Globe and Mail.
"Most people are satisfied waiting for others to write about them after they're gone, but leaving things to others has never really been my style. And it hardly makes sense to change that now."
The  former  University of Windsor finance professor founded the Canadian ShareOwners Association and published its associated investing magazine starting in 1987. It was well known for recommending planned investing, using dollar-cost averaging. dividend reinvestment and building a portfolio of high-grade stocks and exchange-traded funds which could be bought through the association operating as investment dealer.
