John had a great run. I don't think anyone has done more for the individual investor in my lifetime. He changed an industry and gave people an opportunity to build wealth in a way that had not been possible before. We'll miss him, and wait for another to take the torch and move ahead. Yes, RIP John. And thank you.

Sad, truly a great man. John changed the mutual fund industry. He faced a lot of criticism from his peers at other fund companies. Fund industry is more than a little inbred, had to be a tough uphill grind for many years. RIP.

A good man inside and outside the financial road. Creatively went where no one went before him.

Buffett's 2017 comments about Bogle quoted in a CNBC article today.

"If a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors, the hands down choice should be Jack Bogle," billionaire investor Warren Buffett wrote in his annual letter in March 2017.

RIP John Bogle

I just received the sad headline on my phone that John Bogle, father of index investing and founder of Vanguard, has passed away. He was a great man and will be missed by his family, friends and the millions of investors who are grateful to him for making the simple observation that most active managers cannot beat the market, so it's usually best to use a low cost index fund for investing. RIP Mr. Bogle.

Oh no! What sad news. He will be sorely missed. So many of us here followed his financial lead for many years and still adhere to the investing outlook advocated by him.

An amazing person who's life work made things better for the little guy instead of just making great globs of money for himself. He leveled the playing field and made it possible for the unwashed masses, such as myself, to win in the investment game by following his sage advise. RIP Mr. Bogle.

Sad day but then he had quite a life and career so in the end he was a great winner of life's sweepstakes.

I don't have many heroes, but he has been, and will continue to be one to me.
