About Neil Kester

Neil was raised in the Barren Ridge area of Augusta County and  graduated in 1990 from Fort Defiance High School. He and wife Jennifer  were married in 2009 and have a four-year-old son. An active, lifelong  member of the Barren Ridge Church of the Brethren, Neil has coached  church and law enforcement softball teams for a number of years.

Neil's  family roots run deep. The grandson of the late Junior "Joe" and  Charlene Kester, and son of Jesse and Midge Kester, he learned the value  of hard work, dedication, and honesty. He was raised that if you orient  yourself in the right direction you can pass on those values on to your  children and community. Sharing the values of work, faith, and family  are not just an activity for Neil; they are a way of life to help his  community grow and pass down traditions for the next generations.
