Happy birthday, Dean LeBaron

  • by

Today is August 1, Swiss National Day, the equivalent of the US Fourth of July. The occasion has been a day after Swiss celebrations with messages from family and friends, to be retained on my website, not to be lost. They are too valuable to risk these thoughts to my filing system.

Happy Birthday Dean! I hope you can also celebrate Swiss national day (Saturday), like me, from a distance, but our spirits will be in the Alps. Cheers, Bruce

Happy Birthday Uncle Dean! Wishing the happiest wishes, Love Sam and Piper

Happy birthday, Dean LeBaron

Warm regards, Fran Tracy

Wishing you the happiest of birthdays, Dean! We miss having you next door at Sunapee but we look forward to seeing you in Florida at the beautiful new home you and Donna have created. Stay safe and healthy and enjoy every minute of your special day! Love, Kathy
P.S. I’m reminded of our paddle tennis tournament that we had to celebrate your 65th (?) birthday……so much fun and I’m pretty sure you won :)….a fun memory!

Happy Birthday, Dean! We wish you a wonderful day. We miss not having you and Donna boating on Lake Sunapee. Fondly, May and Bob Henry

Sending all of my best birthday wishes and positive vibes to one of the coolest guys on earth. While we miss you in Sunapee and Boston, seeing you turn the “SB” house into your own playground is worth the distance. Hoping to see you and Donna soon. Stay happy and safe! Cheers, Dan T.
PS- my family is in Sunapee with me and sends additional birthday wishes.

Wishing you a fun year ahead. Miss you. Lots of love from a safe distance. Glorianna

Happy birthday, Dean. You’ve had an extraordinary record of accomplishments and experiences over 87 years. Our best wishes for using that curiosity and creativity for many years to come. We look forward to seeing you and Donna on CK in December. Bob & Sara

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAN!! We’ve enjoyed celebrating birthdays at Sunapee with you many times and I am sorry Kathy and I will not be able to join you in Florida for this year’s. We miss seeing you at the lake, but Blake and Una-May and their family are taking full-advantage of their new Sunapee home so there is still plenty of activity and good LeBaron neighbors next door.
Best wishes. Ralph Verni

Lieber Dean Herzliche Glückwünsche zum Geburtstag. Wir wünschen dir noch viele inspirierende und gesunde Lebensjahre. Here a little story when we were up in Sunapee: We went to get gas for the boat and the boatman said to Hannes: You can drive. As my husband wasn’t used to it, he told him that I would drive. Later when we went for dinner you told us what your boatman said and I felt very thrilled: Manuela is riding that boat like a man! Herzlichst Manuela and family 🎂🍭🍰🍷🥂🎉🍀💃🌺

Hi Dean: We join all your Dog Bone Portfolio Club pals in wishing you a very Happy Birthday. With appropriately distanced HUGS. Sue and JB P.S. Congratulations on your early outside-the-box call that Trump would try to delay the election.

Happy Birthday, Dean Thanks so much for giving me the passion for the developing countries of the world. What a ride it has been! And it isn’t over! All the best, Larry Speidell

Hi Dean – Happy Birthday !! I really appreciate all your insights at the Dog Bone Portfolio Club meetings these last couple of years. All the best for a great day ! – Philip Smith

Happiest of birthdays dear Dean!
With love
David and Joan Farha and family

Happy Birthday Dean! I’m definitely the young guy in this fantastic group and have much to learn from you and others. Thank you for always giving us a rational and insightful perspective! All the best, Julian

Happy Birthday!! It has been my privilege to know you for almost 40 years, first as an acquaintance, as a thought leader in our industry, and as an inspiration for me to seek to emulate. In time, you became both a friend and one of my heroes in our business.
You have shaped our industry, pioneering in quantitative investing, in indexing, and in so many other areas. And you have shaped the way I think about these matters, and the way I think about managing businesses, teams and portfolios.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for welcoming me into your life and for sharing your ideas, and for being such a caring friend. I wish you and Donna many more years of shared happiness, and a continued vibrant intellectual and personal life.
With deep respect and much fondness,

Dear Dean Many happy returns of the day. Congratulations on your 87th birthday. (I always know your age because of 1933!) I believe we met 27 years ago. Can you imagine! You still have the same energy, wit and sharpness of mind. All my love Una-May

Happy, happy birthday!! I hope you had a wonderful day! Love, Molly

Happy, happy birthday, dear friend. I’ll never forget the day I first met you; John Bennett brought you to my office in the Manhattan Fund War Room to see all our fancy displays and gadgets when you were both in NY for the first Institutional Investor conference (1969?). The fancy gadgets and displays grabbed your interest immediately… and eventually, thankfully, so did I. You’ve been an unbelievable mentor and friend, and I wish you much happiness and good health as you continue your remarkable journey. — Walt

Dean, happy Birthday. We wish you all the best. Big hugs from Weesen. Paul, Silvia, Kevin and Noel
