About Bob

I am Robert L. Berry III, P.E., but everyone calls me Bob unless I’m in trouble.

I’m a civil engineer, banker, and author. I’m a husband, father, and American patriot. I’m a child of God and co-inheritor of the kingdom of heaven.


Civil Engineer

At Main-Land, we help people build on their land. I’ve designed roads, parking lots, storm water systems, retaining walls, water systems, wastewater systems, and most anything else that you might need to improve property.

Bank Director

I am a member of the board of directors at Franklin Savings Bank, a community bank with branches and offices in Maine. Why bank anywhere else?


I write books. So far I have exactly one: Buying Bacon, which is a book about practical finances for small business owners. I’ve started several others, including a business book about transitional ownership roles, and historical fiction. Stay tuned.

Youth Teacher

I teach middle schoolers at the Fayette Baptist Church youth group called Ignite and in Sunday School. It’s a good fit, since I stopped emotionally maturing at twelve.
