VINCENT D. NEIL
TONY VIGLASS AT
I worked for ONA from it's resurrection
in 1963, through June of 1969. My name
then was Sheila Spruyt. I did some work
for Steedman Hinckley and Bill Bailey and
eventually ended up in the marketing
department with Worth Thornton and
Tony Viglass. I have to say I still
consider my work there as the most
interesting of my life. My last position
was with Vince Neil. I am so sad to learn
of his passing. He was one of the nicest
men ever to grace this world. I have to
say that ONA took very good care of me and
my two girls, they were the kindest people.
I remember spending time with Vince's
family at his home and my children remember
his kindness also. Here's to his wonderful
life and memory.

We recently sold our home in Henderson NV,
and put everything in storage, and are now
mobile and living in our motor home.
I had one of my daughters take a picture
of the portrait hanging on her wall and
email it to me to give you a photo! My
husband's name is Sid, and our two babies
are Dynasty and Dragon. I would like to
ask if you know where Amos Blum is?
I used to work with Amos and visited
a lot with him and his wife, Linda while
working at ONA. Also would like to know
what happened to Worth Thornton, I believe
I read that Tony Viglass had passed a few
years ago. The Internet is wonderful, isn't it!
Well, I thank you for your kind response,
I am really sad to see so many of the people
I knew have passed. I will try to stay in
touch and hope you will do the same.
Much love and best wishes and if you ever
get to Vegas, let me know, I can show you
some interesting places!
