Preferred’s Father Day Spotlight: Roger Rindler

All     by Stacy Lochtefeld

With Father’s Day is right around the corner, we wanted to give a shout out to the very special dads here at Preferred Insurance Center. They were asked to fill out a questionnaire to get to know them a little bit more outside the office setting. First up is the one and only Roger Rindler. Roger first became a dad at the age of 24. His children are Ryan (41), Phil (36), Lindsay (34), Nick (27),  and Jenna (25).

(Q:) What is one piece of advice your parents gave you that has always stuck with you?
It was the example they set daily, rather than their words. They worked hard, were honest, and treated everyone with respect.
(Q:) What was one of your favorite childhood toys?
Anything that I could throw, bounce, hit, or catch.
(Q:) What was one of your favorite gifts to ever receive and who gave it to you?
A throw blanket with pictures of the 5K “Bunny Runs” we do as a family annually at Easter. Given to me by my children.
(Q:) What is one of your most embarrassing moments?
Probably giving my child a “gentle pinch” in Church in an effort to keep him quiet. He then cries out rather loudly, “quit pinching me!!”.
(Q:) What is a favorite meal that your mom used to make you?
Fried chicken with mashed potatoes, gravy and corn.
(Q:) If you could eat only 3 foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, and bacon.
(Q:) Describe the very first car you ever drove.
The first car I owned was a red 1967 Chevy Chevelle.
(Q:) What is one of your favorite things about being a dad?
When they were young it was attending their events and watching each one develop their own personality. But now it’s just having conversations with my adult children.
(Q:) What is #1 on your bucket list?
Drive Hwy #1, from Miami to Key West.
