Hi, I'm Bob! I've been serving the community in different capacities for over 60 years! I'm a proud alumni of Owensboro High School. During my time at OHS, I was a part of the State Championship winning team in '64. My wife Debbie and I were both alumni of Kentucky Wesleyan College, and I graduated in '69. My love of baseball turned into 20 years of youth coaching with little league and Babe Ruth, and taking a team to Babe Youth US Championship(W.S.) in '84. I even was home team PA Announcer for KWC Panther's baseball.

You can often find me cheering on the Owensboro High School teams, especially at golf, basketball, and especially baseball. You might even hear our radio spots for OHS football! I also sponsor the Debbie Williams Memorial Scholarship, as well as community outreach with One Faith Fellowship, Friends of Sinners, St. Benedicts Homeless Shelter, Good News Jail & Prison Ministry, Right to Life, and Gideons.

I'm thankful to be called Dad and Grandad, and I enjoy supporting my family across KY state in their endeavors. From OHS academics and sports, Ballard High Lacrosse in Louisville, Owensboro Southern Little League, and even UK, I'm rooting for my grandkids!

I've proudly been serving our city of Owensboro and our beautiful Kentucky communities with State Farm for over 50 years, since 1970. Our specialty is stellar customer service. We’re excited to take care of you and your family for years to come! We serve all of the state of Kentucky, not just our home county, Daviess, or neighbors in Ohio, Breckenridge, Grayson, McClean, Muhlenberg, Henderson, Butler, or Hancock County. Contact me and my team to work together to secure your future. We're ready to start a conversation about your insurance needs and get you a free quote.

Office Manager

Hi, I'm Jennifer, the Office Manager. I am also a licensed agent. Bob is not only my boss, he is also my dad! State Farm has been an integral part of my life since I was born. I've been working for my Dad since 1990. I graduated from Owensboro High School in 1990 (GO DEVILS!) & I went on to study at the University of Kentucky (GO CATS!), earning my BA in Business Administration in 1994.

I recently celebrated 22 years of marriage with my husband, Mike. He is a Master Plumber, and we own & operate Rickard Plumbing here in Owensboro. Together we have raised our two beautiful boys, Beau and Will. Beau has autism and is the light of our family. Beau also recently graduated from OHS and is enjoying his time after high school. Will is currently a Junior at OHS and is also attending OCTC as well as Western Kentucky University. Will is an active member of the OHS Varsity Golf, Basketball, and Baseball teams, as well as the National Honor Society. He recently celebrated a Baseball State Championship at the KY Junior American Legion tournament in Lexington, as a member of the Owensboro American Legion Post 9 JR Bombers! Our family serves our community in many facets, and we attend Owensboro Christian Church.

Before transitioning to Office Manager for Bob, I gained experience with State Farm as an auto adjuster, just like Bob. We believe this greatly helps our office better serve our customers. I look forward to meeting new customers and continuing to serve our current insureds.

Marketing Manager

Hi, I'm Jen, the resident nerd and techs-pert. I'm the newest to the office, having started with Bob back in 2018 as a licensed agent, and moved into marketing roles in 2020. I LOVE our community. My husband, Casey, and I have 2 angelic cats, Wilson and Chi-Chi, and a spoiled Golden Retriever, Jake. We serve our city of Owensboro alongside our church, Pleasant Valley Community Church. We love baseball, disc golf, and all things hockey. You may even catch us at the farmer's market with our leather working business, Desperado Leather Goods.. I love my job, and taking care of my insureds has been the most fulfilling part of this journey. New faces or well loved, we're here to take care of you.
