The business expanded each year and he provided reliable insurance not only in DeKalb but across East Texas.

The agency continues to be independently owned and operated with ownership transferring to his son, Greg, in 2015. In order to provide easier access for clients, the office moved from the Hawkins’ home to a building in DeKalb in 2017. Pappy decided this was too long a commute (six miles) and officially retired from the agency at that time. Pappy went to his heavenly home December 11, 2018.

While beginning as a Germania agency, we now have appointments with other insurance companies as well. Increasing options for our customers is a primary goal and we are continually exploring other markets.
