A Message from John, Sharon & Pat:

To Our Loyal and Valued Clients:

It may surprise some of you that Pat, Sharon & John have decided to sell our agency at this time.  After more than forty-five years in the insurance business, the time has come for us to step back and retire while we can still enjoy it.

Pat will be catching up and spending time with her family.  I am sure she will also be causing some headaches for her husband, Sam!

While I will maintain a consultant and marketing role with the agency, Sharon and I will be making plans to travel here in our great country to see areas we have not had time to visit.  And I am sure we will also be spending a lot more time with our extended family now that time permits.

We have been thinking of retirement for several years however, it was very important that we find the right buyer that we knew would value our loyal clients as much as we have.


I am now pleased to report, we have found the right person! We have known Greg Childers for many years since he began working for Grange Insurance in 1988 and was the Claims Manager assigned to our office.  In the last several years he has owned and operated First Group Insurance Agency in New Carlisle Ohio and now will expand and maintain our office here in Troy.

I can assure you that Greg and his staff will value each relationship just as we have.  He is a very knowledgeable and he is a really good guy.

Pat, Sharon and John would like to thank all of you for allowing us to provide you with products that everyone needs.  Also for the many friendships that we have built over the many years.  We think of many of you as good friends as well as loyal and valued clients.

Very Sincerely,

John Moffatt


Greg Childers
President & Agent

Greg is the owner of First Group Insurance Agency and the New Owner of Moffatt Insurance Agency, he has been in the insurance industry for 26 years. Greg has a Claims Law Diploma from the American Educational Institute for Casualty Claims Law, Property Claims Law, & Legal Principles of Claims Law.

Greg decided to become an insurance agent after spending the first 19 years of his insurance career as an Insurance Claim Manager. He worked with many insurance agents throughout the years and that is how he first met John, Sharon & Pat. Of the many agencies that I dealt with, I was extremely impressed with how the Moffatt Agency was so customer oriented.  For this very reason and due to my long relationship with John and Sharon, I consider the opportunity to own this fine agency a Blessing to both me as well as my family!

The Reason I Became and Insurance Agent

Greg explains, "As an Insurance Claim Manager I was able to witness first-hand the agent's ability to provide needed protection for their customers and be there for them in a time of need.  In 2007, I jumped at the chance to purchase First Group Insurance and started protecting my own customers, their homes, and autos. It feels good to be in the protection business!"

What Greg Does For Fun

Greg likes to play golf. He also loves riding horses and competes in the sport of “Ranch Team Sorting.”  Greg Admits, he wanted to be a Cowboy long before he wanted to become an insurance agent. He loves animals and is involved in his church. 


Greg really enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife, three children, and four beautiful grandchildren.  Greg says, "My wife Janice, was a marketing rep for Stricker Automotive.  Janice dealt with many insurance professionals as customers, which is how we first met.  She is well respected within her field. Janice is a fine women and has made me a better man. My oldest child, Jessicca has followed in my footsteps and after Graduating from Bowling Green University has been working in the insurance claims field in Lexington, Ky. She is also the mother to my youngest grandson.  My middle child, Ross (or Rossman as I call him) is a construction worker and the Father of three of my grand babies.  Ross is married to Erica and they live in the South West portion of Ohio. My youngest, Briana is a student at Sinclair Community College and is a Music Education Major.  Briana is quite talented in all facets of music."
