At age of eighteen, Steven Williams became a member of the Church of Christ in Duluth, Georgia. Not soon after, he met a member of the church named Canon Callender. Most, if not all, would describe Canon as a very giving, dependable, friendly, and outgoing soul. This was not just the case in his personal life, but on the line of duty as a police officer for Lawrenceville, Ga. While almost everyone would claim to be Canon's best friend, only one person, or non-human, held that title. Meet Ike, a 120lbs German Shepard with 100% bark and no bite (top right).
One day, while Canon was swimming at Lake Lainer, and upon waiting for friends, a cold undercurrent passed through the waters turning the water from hot to cold in an instant causing Canon to suddenly lock up and unable to swim. Unfortunately, this tragic event resulted in his drowning. The news of his drowning brought friends from far and wide and even attracted several local news stations. The funeral itself lasted hours past when the funeral home doors were scheduled to close. Lines to pay respects to Canon's unwavering friendship were long. So long that if you were at the beginning of the line and looked backwards, you felt as if there was no end in sight. Changing of the guards and twenty-one gun solutes brought somber to that tragic day.
As sad as this event was, the bright side is that his memory lives on! The agency has been dedicated in his honor. Like Canon, it will serve as a place where a warm-friendly-attitude, Christian values, and willingness to look out for one's fellow man will be front-and-center of the agency's guiding principles. In the same light, the company logo has a multifaceted meaning. While it symbolizes Ike, it also encompasses the owner and his companion Riley (bottom right). A dog is a perfect symbol as it embodies both loyalty, protection, and partnership. At Canon Insurance Advisers, we do not just want to sell you some insurance, we want provide you with the best product with accurate advise and a lifetime of professional service.
So cheers to Canon! A good friend, brother, son, best friend (Ike), relative, and most importantly, fellow Christian!
