In April of 1996, I married my amazing wife, Holly. When I got back from my honeymoon my dad, Stan Murray, approached me about coming to work with him in the insurance business. He supervised a unit of agents with Bankers Life and Casualty and felt it would be something I would enjoy doing. Two weeks later I did go to work with him. He was right – I still love it after over 20 years in the business.
In January of 1999, dad was on one of his required trips with me into the field. We were working in Greensboro, GA that day and stopped for lunch at his favorite restaurant – Waffle House! The possibility of leaving the confines of a captive company where we could only represent that one company’s products to become independent and represent many companies was the topic that day. We talked about the possibility of starting our own agency together.
A few days later, my dad was in a car accident that took his life. Two months after that, I followed up on our discussion and started my own independent insurance agency, and thus began Integrity Senior Solutions Inc.
Throughout high school and into college, I excelled in music playing saxophone and tuba. In my senior year of high school, I made top chair on both instruments in the All-State Bands, and pursued a music degree at Augusta College (now Augusta University). After that, I travelled around the world with a well-known Christian group called Truth. I still play often around town with various groups like the Augusta Big Band Aggregate and Ed Turner and Number Nine.
My wife and I have two sons, Caleb and Joshua. In 2011 when he was 11 years old, Caleb was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Ewings Sarcoma. He went through 15 months of chemotherapy and is doing great today. We are very thankful. My wife has a Bachelor Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Masters degree in Classroom Technology. She now homeschools our boys.
I am also a NASCAR fan. When Caleb was going through chemo, the assistant for 7-time Champion Jimmie Johnson found out that we were at the Talladega race that year and invited us to meet Jimmie. It was a huge deal to Caleb, who is a big fan of his. He was very encouraging to Caleb and told him to keep up the fight – which he did!
I also enjoy the outdoors – fishing, hunting, and camping with the family. I am a licensed General class ham radio operator. But above all, I love being with my family.
Thanks for dropping by and learning a little about me. I look forward to serving your insurance needs. http://expertmedicare.com 1-888-228-6119
