“Fearless Aging is leaving your house without your cane!”
Hearld Ambler has been on the Foundation Board for over a decade and serves as Treasurer. After retiring from BKD in 1989, he wanted to remain active in the community. He began as a volunteer for the TCE (Tax Counseling for the Elderly) program in 1990 and really enjoyed it. Friends soon encouraged him to get involved with the Foundation.
Hearld has been married to Marjorie for 73 years and they have 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. He enjoys tackling a good puzzle, mentoring young professionals, volunteering time to various non-profits, or taking a break from IRS tax code to read a great piece of fiction.
Hearld was recently named the 2016 Humanitarian Award Recipient by Community Foundation of the Ozarks.
Who was a senior who influenced you?
My Grandfather Ambler was a farmer and taught me to work hard. I knew that the farm life wasn’t for me, and went to school to become a CPA. However, I carried my grandfather’s work ethic with me throughout my career and life.
