  • After 36 years of selling insurance, Ron Gent of Ron Gent Agency announced his retirement Dec. 1 and the sale of his agency to First Security Agency of MN, Inc. in Sleepy Eye.
     
    Ron went into the insurance business in 1977 under American Family for nine years before becoming an independent agent.
     
    Prior to his career in the insurance industry, Ron spent four years in the Navy. After returning to Sleepy Eye Ron worked several years in road construction and was employed at the local fertilizer plant.
     
    Born and raised in Sleepy Eye, Ron has a long line of family heritage in the Sleepy Eye area dating back to his great-grandfather who emigrated from Germany and fought in the civil war.
     
    Ron also spent many years on the basketball court, first playing on his high school and then Navy team and eventually becoming a referee for 15 years before retiring from that position.
     
    When asked what the key was to his successful business he said offering excellent customer service coupled with the many good people he worked with for the past 36 years.
     
    First Security Agency, co-owned by Perry Pietig and Ron Petersen, is an independent insurance agency for all home, auto, farm and business needs.
     
    The First Security Agency would like to congratulate Ron on a successful career and wish him the very best in retirement and the years ahead. They look forward to providing Ron’s clients the same great service they are accustomed to.
