When you call or come in, chances are that Alex will be your first point of contact. He is hard-working. He is dependable. Meet Alex Walker, our Parts Department Manager:
Howdy Doody everybody! Let’s give you a little insight on the life of your friendly parts manager. Some quick facts about me; I am the youngest of four, two brothers and one sister. I was born and raised right here in the wonderful city of Memphis, where I attended the University of Memphis. I am a huge animal lover especially mans’ best friend, the beloved dog.
Growing up, the lake life was always a treat, but my main passion was baseball. From T-ball to high school ball, baseball was my life. Unfortunately, I ended my baseball career when I was a Junior at Germantown High School and decided to get a job.
Every year my family would take a beach trip to Pensacola, Florida. All week I would be out on the shore line from sun up till sun down running back and forth with my skim board. I loved working on my spins and aerials. Recently I’ve been able to put my skim board experience to use by wakesurfing behind the boat.
About 5 years ago I truly found another one of my biggest passions, dog training. I studied under multiple different trainers for a number of years, learning different methods and behaviors. While studying, I found my first dog, Bennett, a red retriever from a local rescue.
Dog training was great for many reasons, but meeting the love of my life, who just so happens to also be named Alex, was by far my favorite. Luckily for me, she loves dogs even more than I do. She is now a vet technician for a local vet here in Memphis. Together we have 5 dogs that have all been rescued from various situations. If you haven’t realized it yet, we love to rescue dogs, especially the infamous “scary” Pittbulls. We are in the process of buying a home with high hopes of owning our own rescue shelter in the near future.
Stay tuned, next week we will introduce another phenomenal member of our parts department, Ken Billings.
