Kevin Seymour

Supervisory Committee Nominee

Member since: 11-28-2001

My daily gig: I have been with Parker Helac in Enumclaw since 2005 as a Team Lead/Machinist. Prior to working at Parker Helac,  I spent 10 years working in manufacturing for the aerospace industry.

How I spend my down time:  I enjoy spending time working in my yard. Last summer I completed a multi-year project on the backyard and this year I’m working on a garden for the first time with my 6-year-old granddaughter. I enjoy spending time with my wife and granddaughters. My wife and I have 5 adult children and 8 grandchildren and we have a trip planned in April to meet our newest grandson in Texas.  Sundays, my wife and I attend church building friendships and growing our relationship with God.

Why are you volunteering: I always think about numbers and money. I think this is a unique experience to learn more about the financial system, meet new people and hopefully represent the members of the Credit Union in a positive way.

Larry Flynn

Member Since: 12.15.2004

My daily Gig: I am a retired police officer and currently serve as a Senior Vice President for a commercial insurance broker where, among other duties, I provide driver safety instruction to clients with fleets of vehicles.

How I spend my down time: In my spare time I am raising a nice herd of cattle with my grandson. I also ride horses and enjoy team roping in our arena with my daughter and my grandkids.

Why are you volunteering:  I’ve been a member of WRCU for a long time.  I’ve observed their positive growth over the years and I’d like to contribute to future growth as more than just a member. I’ve always wanted to do something positive for the community and serving on the board would help towards achieving that goal.

How I spend my down time:  I enjoy spending time with family and friends (especially if that time is on a golf course). 

Why are you volunteering:  WRCU has played a pivotal role in the success of the surrounding communities since its founding in 1952.  I believe a Board of Directors role is a tremendous opportunity – and responsibility – to ensure WRCU continues to be a leader in the success of the surrounding communities for many years to come.

My daily gig: I have been a chiropractor for the past 34 years.  33 of those years have been in solo practice in Enumclaw.  

How I spend my down time: My free time passion is to be physically active outdoors.  Whether it is playing golf, backpacking, hiking with my dog, climbing a mountain, cutting grass or raking leaves; if I’m outdoors and active, I am happy.

Why are you volunteering:  With savings and checking account services, personal loans and auto loans, WRCU has served my family in many capacities over the years.  WRCU has always been a member-oriented experience, and I would like to contribute to maintaining or even improving that culture.
