Bill Walker

Growing up, I had no dad. I lost contact with my father when I was 14 years old and even before, there wasn't a lot of interaction. My mom worked her tail off to provide for me a life she wanted me to have.

1994 - enter Bill Walker, Jr.

yes, I am wearing orange overalls

He took over like he had been my dad my whole life. He tried to instill values in me such as hard work, integrity, respect - things that I took for granted at the time. 

He stood by me during a tough time in my life and gave me the kind of love I needed. He helped guide me to a path that brought me to where i am today. As a step-parent myself, I truly understand how difficult this was and it makes me appreciate him even more. 

He adopted me in 2000 which officially made him something he already was, my dad. 

He walked me down the aisle.

He danced with me

He loves Clemson like me
