Richard W. Hopp

26-zgu8l2I graduated from Southwest Missouri State University in 1977 with a degree in Biology and Psychology.

Started in the Insurance business with the Continental Insurance Company in 1978.  Was a traveling field agent, called on agencies in central Missouri.  Took sales position with the Wiemann & Pues Insurnace Agency in 1981 working with owner, Jerry Bean.  Mr. Bean passed away in 1992, bought the agency from his estate in 1993.  I have owned the agency for 20 years.

Besides working in the insurance agency, I have been involved with the Washington Town & Country Fair, in charge of the Main Stage entertainment from 1984 to 2010.  I was Fair Chairman in 1991.  I still help with the Main Stage to this date.  I am also the president of the Historic Washington Foundation, the sister organization of Downtown Washington, Inc., of which I am past president and director emeritus.  I believe in Downtown!

I am also a member of the Washington Lions Club of which I have been the treasurer since 1982.  I belong to the Moolah Shriners in St; Louis and a member of the Patrol for 32 years.  This is another of my passions to help kids with disabilities.

I have two children, Sarah and Eldon.  Both are now over 21 and doing their own thing.
