Hello, my name is Tim Flinn

Hello, my name is Tim Flinn

by Trey Hopkins

Timothy Randell Flinn is your friendly neighborhood investment banker at The Farmers State Bank and Trust Company. Flinn some way or another has always been around the neighborhood, which has fed his love for central Illinois and Cardinals baseball. Currently, Flinn puts in his hours at a job that he loves in Jacksonville; but when it’s time for him to relax he does so outside of Pleasant Plains with his family. Most of Flinn’s time outside of work is spent with his fast-paced household; it’s made up of his wife, Colleen Flinn, and his three kids; Cashin, Zobyn and Leo — all between the ages of one and five. With kids that young, Flinn says he has no extra time for anything else outside of work and home. However, when asked about what he’d do if monetary issues no longer existed, Flinn responded with the thoughts that he’d play a whole lot more golf and try to help people. He then took a step back and thought that instead of waiting to help when money is not an issue, he should help now any way he can, which then changed his answer to a whole lot of golf and setting a new everyday goal to help people along the way. Flinn also said that if he was to be alone on an island, he wouldn’t need three books to keep him company, just two. The first would be the savvy pick, “How to Build Your Own Boat from Scratch” by John Traister and the second would be “Ulysses” by James Joyce, for his spare time while he’s not crafting a boat from scratch to sail away. If that intelligent play of bringing a book about building a boat to an island doesn’t prove Flinn’s an outside-of-the-box thinker, this might: when he was asked about his choice of super power, he dumped all textbook powers to the side and went for a specified pick. Not just to read minds, but his choice of power was to have the ability all husbands want — to be able to read his wife’s mind. Flinn’s a thinker that’s for sure, so make sure when you’re out and about, you head over to The Farmers State Banks and Trust and tell Flinn, “hi.”
