Loftin Out Loud!
John and Lyndi Loftin celebrated nine years of marriage this past May and have two sons, Colton age 7 and Jordan age 5.
John was born and raised in Paulding County. His parents are both retired from the Paulding County School System. Lyndi is originally from Ohio, but was living in Savannah when she met John. Mutual friends brought them together during a Fourth of July weekend in North Georgia and they have been together ever since.
Lyndi graduated from Ohio State University with a communication degree and is now a paralegal for The Plumley Law Firm in Dallas. John graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Housing; emphasizing consumer economics. He was also a place kicker for the Bulldogs for three years, and was a member of the 2002 SEC Championship and the 2003 Sugar Bowl Championship teams.
John began working in the insurance industry in 2004 and found great joy in helping people by making sure they were covered for many of life’s surprises. In 2014, he decided to start his own insurance brokerage agency, so the plans were put in motion to start Fairway Insurance Group in Acworth. It was hard work for his family, but they are very proud of how the business has grown. Today, John runs sales and operations for all lines of insurance in Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida.
The Loftin’s are an active, fun-loving family, and there is never a dull moment with two young boys. Colton and Jordan enjoy going to the putting green with their dad and hitting wiffle balls in the back yard. When asked what they want to be when they grow up, Colton says he wants to be an archaeologist, and Jordan says he wants to be a construction worker and a rock star on the guitar.
Summer is a special time of year for them. They enjoy swimming in their community pool, playing backyard games like life-size Jenga, hanging out with their cousins and travelling to Hilton Head to play on the beach, ride bikes and visit their family there.
John and Lyndi grew up playing soccer and have passed their love of the sport on to their sons. Both boys play soccer for Paulding SSA Rec, and Lyndi is a coach for Jordan’s U5Team. Together the whole family are BIG fans of Atlanta United.
It is clear the Loftin’s love each other, their life, and every second they spend together living it!
Lyndi shares, “John is a wonderful husband and amazing father.”
Owning his own business has allowed John to have the flexibility to be there for Colton and Jordan’s activities. His favorite part of being their Dad is “watching them grow and seeing their different personalities come out; and loving each and every one of their little mannerisms.”
Every day is a blessing, but John’s idea of a perfect Father’s Day is spending the day with his own father and two sons, grilling out and playing soccer in the backyard.
Happy Father’s Day John!
