Richie’s father started Bodiford Insurance Agency in Selmer over 50 years ago. Richie followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the agency in 1987. He has been partnered with W&A for more than 20 years and says the best thing about the insurance business is being able to make a living by helping others. Richie and his wife, Lorrie, love to cheer on their daughter, Chelsea, who played basketball at Union University and is not pursing a graduate degree. He enjoys raising horses and spending time with his friends and family.
