Feagin Insurance

Chris Nickolas & Assoc.

Feagin Insurance at the corner Main Street and Davis.  Circa 1950's 

Chris A. Nickolas started in the insurance business in early 1960.  He never officially retired but slowed down in the mid 2000's.  He earned many awards including Newcomer of the Year, Million Dollar Round Table, and Salesman of the Year, to name a few.  He sold the first universal life policy in Houston for E.F. Hutton.  He was innovative and had several insurance companies design policies based on his suggestions.

In 1985, Chris teamed up with his son, Ken and formed Assurance Brokerage, Inc.  The company brokered life and health plans to agents.  Ken branched off to start his own personal production agency, but continued to work with his Dad on special products until Chris semi-retired.

In addition to his success in the insurance business, Chris served on the board of the Y.M.C.A. and was well known in the Houston area for chairing fundraisers.  He started the Greek Festival in Houston, put the Alley Theatre Gala on the map, and chaired the Houston Printers Museum's greatest fundraiser.

T.W. Feagin, Jr.
​(Wiley)

Tommie Feagin, Sr. was the founder and owner of the Feagin Insurance Agency.  He was a native Houstonian who came to Conroe in 1932 to open a feed store for his employer Conroe Grain Company.  Business in the feed industry began to show a decline for the next ten years, which led to the eventual close of business in 1944.  This, however, was only the beginning of a bright career for the young Feagin.  He became the Southland Life Insurance company agent for Montgomery County that year and opened his own business.

Wiley Feagin graduated from Conroe High School in 1956, where he played football along with Buddy Moorhead, after whom the current stadium is named.  He was a guard in the NFL for the Baltimore Colts and Washington Redskins, before joining the family business in 1964.  Wiley was just as civic-minded as his dad, being a member of various civic organizations, including serving as president of United Way.
