Pepper is a retired insurance agent, who worked 30 years as both a property & casualty and life & annuities professional for a Virginia insurance company with an office in Caroline. He was a top producing agent for the company at the agency, district, state, and southern multi-state regional areas for many years. Many former clients thank him to this day for the good advice he provided over many years, particularly in annuities as the value of having a knowledgeable professional on their side has become more apparent as the clients approach retirement themselves. He has been involved in other business ventures including owning/operating Gulf Oil stations and real estate. Pepper is also Lee and Micky's dad. He has been and continues to be a valued advisor to us. Thanks for everything, Dad!
