Motto: "Faith and Persistence"
I am the third son (fifth child) born to Clifford and Charlotte Walker. Kendra is the first child born to Darrell and Sandra Crooks. We were married in 1987 and have two children.
In the first quarter, the barry-wavy represents water, which is rich in symbolism in the Christian faith. The lion passant (walking) is a word-play on my surname. The second and third quarter are a link to our respective parents. The fourth quarter, the roses are an appreciation for our two children and the unicorn, a symbol of purity. The chevron or, crusily gules, is an acknowledgment of the sacrifices made for us. The crest, an anchor which is the symbol of hope and the anvil of labor. To us, is a symbolic restatement of our motto "persistence and faith."
