Celebrating Father's Day - 2019
This Father’s Day we want to offer a special thanks to the men in our lives. The men who have helped to teach us life’s lessons and shared their love with us throughout their lifetime. Whether you’re celebrating being a father yourself, are thinking about the love of someone lost, or are commemorating the holiday by sharing thanks to other mentors in your life, today is a day to thank those who have made our worlds better.
At Lincoln Savings Bank, we want to share the mentors of our employees and the stories they’ve written together. We love learning about the people who are important in the lives our employees and we are thrilled to share them with you today.
Tori Cory, Regional Marketing Coordinator
Words of Advice: It is less of words and more of leading by example. My dad is the most Godly man I know and I can only hope to live for Jesus as he does. Plus, he never let me take myself too seriously, so when we are out on a father-daughter date, we are just ridiculous and get to laughing super hard. :)
Advice by: Kent Brady
Appreciation to Share: I can't thank you enough for raising me the way you did. You are a huge part of who I am- from my love of grammar to my love for God.
Matt Roeding, Executive Intern
Words of Advice: Always give 110% effort to everything you do, it doesn't matter if it is something you enjoy doing or not, always give maximum effort.
Advice by: Carl Roeding
Appreciation to Share: Thanks Dad for instilling hard work in me from day one. You've always had my back along the way and I'm forever grateful that I get to call you Dad.
Erik Skovgard, CEO & President
Words of Advice: On not such a good day, my Dad shared the following wisdom, "You aren't as good as your best day, and you aren't as bad as your worst day." He was talking about managing the two rails of life: good and bad. I have used his advice to remind myself to be humble when experiencing success. On the flip side there have been a few bad days his wisdom provided me the perspective to not lose hope and remind myself that there will be better days.
Advice by: Gus Skovgard
Appreciation to Share: I would tell my Dad that I miss him and thank him for all the sacrifices he made for our family.
Caleb Sieh, 1st VP – Insurance Agency Manager
Words of Advice: Two things really stick out: 1) "If you don't lie, you don't have to remember what you said" and 2) Your reputation takes years to build and can be torn down in one moment. Consistently make good decisions.
Advice by: Rodger Sieh and Edward Sieh (grandfather)
Appreciation to Share: Dad, thank you for investing in me as a child and teenager and firmly planting my feet on a solid foundation. When life throws its challenges, and even when I don't handle it well at first, I never fall to far because of the path and foundation you helped build. To my grandpa, I really miss you and I think you'd be so excited to see all the "Sieh boys" that are carrying on your name.
