Larry Hines “stumbled” into the insurance industry in 1972 after three years as an officer in the U. S. Marine Corps, which included a tour of duty in Vietnam. He then went on to work for Safeco Insurance Company. During the eight years with Safeco, Larry began preparing to start his own independent agency. In 1980, Larry opened the doors to Sun Pacific Insurance and became dedicated to educating consumers to help them make better informed insurance decisions. In addition, Larry has completed the Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriter designation (CPCU), the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation, the Associate in Risk Management (ARM) designation and is a Certified WorkComp Advisor (CWCA).
In his spare time, Larry enjoys spending time with his four grandchildren and playing golf as much as possible.
