I grew up in Milan, MO and after returning from college started my career in the insurance industry in October 1980 with the Larry D Barnes Insurance Agency. Starting with two years in Des Moines, Iowa to assist with the opening of a regional office there, moving back to Kirksville, MO to become a Regional Marketing Director for seven years before relocating to Columbia, MO in 1991 where our home office is now located. My wife Debbie and I have been married 30+ years and have been blessed with two boys.
