Employee Spotlight – Richard Roehr
We want to highlight Richard Roehr in our Employee Spotlight!
Richard started at United Southern Bank in January of 1997. He’s held the position of Facilities and Security Manager since he joined the USB family. This past March he celebrated his 80th birthday and he is still working full force every day. He says he stays for many reasons, job satisfaction is top reason plus he doesn’t want to leave, everyone has been so good to him. His favorite aspect of his job is fixing things and making people happy.
He has been married to Judy for ten years. His first wife, Sue passed away in 2008 due to Cancer. From that marriage, he has three adult children, Gerald who lives in Pembroke, Kimberly who lives in Hopkinsville, and Michael who lives in Lafayette. Richard has two granddaughters, Ada and Lizzy.
Richard’s secret to having the ability to work full-time at his age is that he has to keep busy and have a purpose every day.
Some of his hobbies include Rabbit Judging and participating in Rabbit Shows. He has been showing Chinchilla rabbits since 1980. He also gardens all the vegetables he likes to eat and he raises cows (Charolais). He has about 25 cows and 15 calves.
Since COVID-19 has hit our area, Richard has been busy ensuring that our associates and customers stay safe. If you stop by our branches, he is responsible for the plexiglass that has been installed at the teller windows. He ensures that all our branches are always maintained and well taken care of. He is a master of so many trades and he is so skilled, you never know what he will be fixing whether small or big.
Richard and Judy, who is a hairdresser, enjoy traveling and are looking forward to taking some trips in the near future.
We are very grateful that Richard is a member of our USB family.
