    My name is Kerry Lynn and I was born in Paducah. Raised in So. Illinois and graduated from Murray State where I met Melinda, my bride of 38 years.  

    I was first introduced to BMW by Melinda. She was driving the other “luxury brand” and wanted me to make a change.  After owning a BMW for a month, I decided I wanted to not only own a BMW but to have the privilege to introduce BMW to others.  I have been a BMW Client Advisor for Bluegrass BMW close to 11 years now.  

    My other Passion is “Water” I enjoy sailing on Kentucky Lake and kayaking.   But my greatest delight is taking “Latin” dance lessons with Melinda.

General Manager

  • Rick Duncan

    Rick Duncan

    General Manager

    I was born and raised in Paducah and have lived here most of my life. The only exception being four years spent in Detroit working my way thru college. I have been “car crazy” for as long as I can remember. I learned to drive in my father’s 1957 Ford Ranchero. A vehicle that my twin brother and I still own to this day. I started in the automobile business in 1983 at a Pontiac-Lincoln-Mercury dealership. One year later I joined Allan Rhodes Chrysler-Honda and have been “here” ever since. “Here” has certainly changed over the years. We added BMW a year after I joined Allan Rhodes and in May of 1993, I and two partners bought Allan Rhodes out and changed the name to Bluegrass Honda-BMW. Mike Absher and I became friends several years ago and in October 2009 we completed a transaction that made Mike and his wife Cheryl the new owners of Bluegrass.  I am married to my best friend Kathy and we have four kids and six grandkids. In my spare time I enjoy restoring vintage automobiles, any kind of racing, and traveling back roads.

    I started off in the clean up shop in 2008 and by 2012, I was in sales. I'm a firm believer that no matter what you do in life, always be good to those around you. I'm beyond thankful to be a part of this company and to know these people around me.

    I was born and raised in Paducah. Shortly after high school, I met my beautiful wife, Mistelle. Knowing her has been an absolute blessing. She brought our son, Desmond, into this world in 2009 and I'll forever love her for that. My most proudest achievement in life is being a dad.

    When I'm not at the dealership, you can find me at home running around with my son and having a good time drumming to whatever music I can get my hands on, watching science fiction shows with the family, reading and discussing comics with my wife. We're definately a nerd family. Life is too short to be someone else.

    Title Clerk

    Except for brief adventures living in Virginia Beach, VA, Golconda and Metropolis, IL, and Muhlenburg County, KY, I’ve spent most of my life in Paducah KY.  Ironically, when I lived in Illinois I worked (for 20+ years) at a bank in Kentucky; then I moved home and wound up working at a small bank in southern Illinois (for 3 years)- my car didn’t know if I was coming or going...  

    After the small bank in Illinois sold and I was “downsized” again, I made the leap to the car business.  I started with another dealership in town, but found a home with Bluegrass in 2005. I've been here for 8 years now and hope to have many, many more!! My main job is Cost Accounting, but I also do other accounting functions as well.  

    My family is the most important part of my life.  I have #1 daughter Krista with husband Gary, and grandchildren Megan, Austin, and Dylan in Paducah, KY; and, #2 daughter Shana, with grandchildren Ashlynn, and Gavin who live with me. The grandkids range in age from 22 to 4 so life is never boring and frequent babysitting keeps me young.  

    Outside of work, I’m an avid reader.  I read pretty much anytime I can, and have been known to read the phonebook and the dictionary when things are slow.  I also love yard work and doing DIY projects at home.

    I grew up on a farm in Central Illinois and moved to Paducah in 1974. Soon after that I started working for Allan Rhodes Ford and have been in the car business ever since, mainly doing titles. After working for the Rhodes family for several years, I left and worked for a couple other dealerships in town. Then in 2010, I came back home. I love working with the Bluegrass team and representing a great product. I drive a 1990 Honda that still runs like a new one.

    Outside of work, I enjoy church activities at Temple Baptist Church and spending time at home with my husband, Burnette and our pet family of 3 dogs and 9 cats. We also enjoy gardening, fishing, yard-sales and of course... UK Basketball!!!

    Mike Absher - Dealer Principal             
    I was born and raised in Marion. Apart from living in New York while in the Army, I've lived my whole life here. I now live south of Marion with my wife, three boys, 4 dogs, a cat and a host of other critters. I started in the car business part time cleaning the shop when I was 12. I started full-time in 1989. I had a sabbatical from 2003-2006 when I founded a software company that sold software to car dealers. I got back into the car business on 2/1/2007 when my wife Cheryl and I purchased Marion Ford Hyundai. We have since purchased other dealerships; Bluegrass Honda-BMW in Paducah KY in 2009, Marion Chevrolet-Cadillac-Buick-GMC in Marion in 2011, Madisonville Ford-Nissan in Madisonville, Kentucky in 2011 Hyundai of Cape Girardeau in Cape Girardeau, MO in 2012, and Nissan of Marion in Marion IL 2013. Together, we refer to our group of dealerships as Watermark Automotive Group and you can find out more behind the name at  

    My only active hobby is playing the trumpet, usually within a brass quintet at First Christian Church in Marion with some friends of mine from high school. I have played the trumpet for 36 years and enjoy it very much. I have some inactive hobbies that I hope to resume someday such as woodworking. I would also like to be on a S.W.A.T. team, but I am past the maximum age. I still dream about that one though and hope that some municipality will waive the age thing for me, especially since I know the theme song so well.  

    I have three wonderful boys that are active in scouting, fishing, little league baseball, playing with the neighbor boys, digging holes and wrecking ATVs. I am a member of the Marion Community Unit No. 2 Board of Education, and currently I am honored to serve as President of the Board. I am a member of the Board of Trustees of Southern Illinois Healthcare (SIH) The Board oversees the operation of many hospitals and other health-care related facilities throughout southern Illinois and employs over 3,000 residents which makes it the second largest employer in our entire region. I am a member of the Marion Rotary Club. My wife Cheryl is a non-practicing attorney. She does a terrific job of guiding the boys through their misadventures and making her fourth boy's life (me) a living blessing. 

    I’ve asked all our team members to make the effort of writing a bio here so that you can get to know them better. I hope you allow us the time to get to know YOU better. Just like you, we are real people with real lives with a zest for living and the car business. Please come visit us anytime. At Watermark, our real will seal your deal!

    Charisa Fiser

    BMW Service Manager

    I started at Bluegrass Honda BMW in 1999 in sales and internet sales then moved to back up F&I briefly before going into IT.   

    I was born in Cape Girardeau, MO but my family moved to around 5 different states and in each state about 4 different places before finally finding our home in Paducah.  

    After I graduated from Reidland High School, I took a year and a half out and traveled from coast to coast starting in Jacksonville, NC and eventually ending my travels in Vancouver, WA.. I met so many wonderful people during this time and have no regrets whatsoever about traveling throughout this amazing country that we have. After my travels I decided it was time to go to college. I came back to Paducah and started at PCC then transferred to Murray State University. While there, I threw javelin for Murray State University Track Team. After graduation, I moved out to Los Angeles, CA and worked at Jon Douglas Corporate Real Estate Office in downtown LA in layout and design for major newspapers.  

    After I grew tired of the hustle and bustle of LA, I decided to come back to Paducah. I got a job at UPS where I met my wonderful husband of 16 years, Brent. We have 2 amazing boys, Zachary 14 and Benjamin 10…they keep us very busy. We love to play golf as a family, go camping and watching our favorite NFL team…the Steelers!

    I was born in Massachusetts, and as the son of a US Army soldier moved all over. Including out west, down south, back east, and even Germany for six years. In 1991 we moved to Kentucky, and I decided to call it home. 

    I've been married to the love of my life since 1999, and we have two beautiful young daughters. We live in Reidland, and are part of the church at Gospel Mission. Spending time with my family and friends, working with the youth at church, and playing bass in the youth band are just a few of the things I love to do. 

    I consider myself blessed to work with everyone here at Bluegrass BMW. Their commitment to customer satisfaction and teamwork is, without a doubt, top notch.

    My story...where do I begin? We'll just hit a few high points. I know nothing of failure. In fact, I'm the ONLY person in the history of the Reidland School System to get 2nd Place in the 5th Grade Science Fair two consecutive years in a row! I love animals, I love them so much I want to ingest them.

    When not putting in hard labor at the dealership I am a "stay-at-home-son." I also hold the record for being the ONLY person ever to Rollerblade on I-75. I read a Goosebumps book once. I allsow considur miselph too bee a grate spelar. It is my dream to one day own a 50 acre Beet Farm.

    I have a girlfriend also named Erin (spelling is different than mine)...I think that name sounds beautiful!
