I'm a life long resident of Johnson County and currently reside outside of Iowa City with my wife of more than 40 years, Barb (BJ) Stimmel. We have three children. Brad is a Farm Bureau agency manager and resides in LeClaire, Iowa, with his three children. Kimberly is a medical doctor in Onalaska, Wisconsin. She and her husband Jac, have 3 children. Carmine recently relocated to Iowa from North Carolina and is a Farm Bureau agent on my team in my Iowa City office. Carmine and her husband Ed have 2 children.
When we find time, BJ and I enjoy traveling to see our family and I love to play a round of golf or two whenever possible. I am also a member of the Izaak Walton League, Knights of Columbus and attend St. Patricks Church. I am currently President of the local NAIFA.
In 1972, making the decision to become a Farm Bureau agent was an easy one. I was excited about the idea of helping friends and neighbors by providing to them a full line of multi-line insurance products. At that time, I made it my goal to provide sound insurance and financial guidance and provide quality customer service. After more than 40 years with Farm Bureau, my staff and I still have those same goals.
