After 33 years working for the clients of the Texas Farm Bureau Insurance Company in Fairfield, Bill White has retired and turned the reins over to Beau Chastain of Waco.
Mr. Chastain began the position of Agency Manager for the Fairfield Texas Farm Bureau on January 1, 2013. ?I started with Texas Farm Bureau six and a half years ago in Waco,? said Mr. Chastain. ?I?m from the small town of Riesel and I thought that the office in Fairfield would be a good fit for me.?
Mr. Chastain has been in the insurance business for approximately 11 years, however, before insurance he spent 16 years as a welder. ?I came to the Texas Farm Bureau because they are a community based insurance company that does the best they can to protect their members from the catastrophic disasters that happen in life,? said Chastain.
Texas Farm Bureau Insurance offers all types of insurance, Life, Home, Auto, Health Care, Disability, Commercial, Farm & Ranch, etc. Becoming a member of Texas Farm Bureau is belonging to a family oriented company that is still member run even though is has become very big,? said Mr. Chastain. ?They still believe in morals and values.?
Beau Chastain is married to his wife Sharon who works in Waco for the Region 12 Service Center. They help 78 school districts. Mr. Chastain is living in Fairfield and when their house in Waco is sold she will move to Fairfield also. She has been with the Region 12 Service Center for 20 years and will commute for a couple of years until she retires. The couple has five children and 12 grandchildren who are the light of their lives. ?We are fine with living in Fairfield because it close enough to Waco that we can go to the games, plays and other activities for the grandchildren,? said Chastain. ?If we would have known how great having grandchildren is, we would have had them first,? laughed Beau.
As well as taking care of its members Texas Farm Bureau does many programs to help support their communities. ?We want to be so involved with our community and our member families that when their children grow up they will automatically go with the company that has taken good care of their parents for years,? said Chastain.
