Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

I’m passionate about helping my members determine their financial goals. We work together to create a plan based on their unique needs.

I serve members in…

Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Indiana and Georgia -- and I can serve you as a member of Modern Woodmen, too!

I can help you plan for life using a variety of tools, including…

life insurance, annuities, mutual funds and variable annuities.

I enjoy working with…

those approaching retirement, small-business owners and young families. Planning for life is difficult. There are many stages, and your financial needs ought to be occasionally adjusted to move forward smoothly toward your goals. I can help you to do so.

I attended…

high school and college in West Virginia. I received a BAS degree in Civil Engineering from Bluefield State College.

Before Modern Woodmen, I…

ran my own businesses. I worked for a family business in cable television systems from my teenage years to 1983, then began my own business in cable TV in 1986, constructing, owning and operating systems in West Virginia until 1999. I served as a town council member in Bluefield, VA, from 1998 to 2000 and was elected as mayor there in 2000 and 2002. I owned and operated a plywood mill from 2003 to 2007, supplying furniture companies with high grade plywood products for chairs and sofas.

My life outside of work

My family includes…

my wife, Sue; my daughter, Meghan Schaeffer; my two sons, Ryan and Todd King; and my seven grandchildren.

In my free time, you can find me…

working outside or visiting my seven grandkids in Kennesaw, GA, McGaheysville, VA, and Indianapolis, IN.

I’m passionate about…

my family and friends. I also love to go to Salem Red Sox baseball games, to watch the Hokies and the Mountaineers, and to keep up with the Cincinnati Reds.

My greatest blessing is…

my family and my health.

My personal motto is…

"Take a negative and make it a positive." Don't let a problem become an insurmountable block -- turn it around to your advantage. It CAN be done!

Community impact

My local community impact

I have lived in my community…

... well, I grew up in a bordering West Virginia county, McDowell County. I moved to Bluefield, VA, in 1983 and to Roanoke in 2008. However, my community is where my Modern Woodmen members live. I can help you to improve your community in a variety of ways. Let me help!

It’s very important to me to support my community. My favorite Modern Woodmen programs are:

our Matching Fund projects, Hometown Hero events and free youth educational programs available to all schools. Through our Matching Fund Program, my chapters have helped local fire departments in Halifax, Clintwood and Blacksburg; elementary schools in Ervinton, Bland, Rocky Gap, Roanoke, Eagle Rock and Buchanan; individuals facing medical emergency expenses; and more. Our Hometown Hero Program is designed to honor local volunteers who are so important in successful communities.
