Unless you live under a rock or DVR all your shows and skip the commercials then you wont know who the 'Vern Fonk' Guy is. His Real name is Rob Thielke and he's been the face of Vern Fonk Insurance for more than 20 years and sadly he passed away last weekend after...

a long battle with cancer. He was 50 years old. The Vern Fonk insurance agency made it's debut in the Tri-Cities market just a few years ago. Believe me the wacky commercials did not go unnoticed and neither has the sign on Clearwater Avenue. The agency ask's you  “to honk when you drive by Vern Fonk!” to further honor his memory.

Here's a reel of his old commercials!
