Jonnie passed away in 1978, but the firm continued as a mainstay in downtown Augusta. In 1994, A.J. Kilpatrick & Co. joined A.G. Edwards, which was bought by Wells Fargo in 2007. In 2005, Thomas Duncan Kilpatrick joined his father, Richard, at A.G. Edwards as the third generation Kilpatrick in the financial services industry, and because of his commitment to providing objective financial advice, realigned with LPL Financial in 2009.
