Happy Father’s Day, especially to our Matlock family fathers!

Wilton Wallace,  likes to celebrate Father’s Day by playing golf.

Happy Father’s Day to all Fathers everywhere!! Here at Matlock, we would like to give a special call out to our fathers…and even a few grandfathers!

To celebrate this special day, we asked our Matlock dads about Father’s Day, how they like to celebrate Father’s day and most importantly, what being a father means to them. Read on….

Kent Matlock, Chairman and CEO, and father to a sixteen year old son and two four-legged kids.

How will you celebrate Father’s day? I will go to church and then just kick back and take it easy for the rest of the day unless someone wants to take me out to dinner!

 What is the best Father’s Day gift you have ever received? The best father’s day gift was a drawing from my son when he was a toddler.

Is there anything you’d like to say to Dads everywhere on Father’s Day? Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!


Donald Webster, Executive Vice President, Controller and father to daughter, Tristian and 4 pets (although he states his wife and daughter really claim the pets more than he does).

How will you celebrate Father’s Day?  I plan to spend this Father’s Day by going to church with my extended Family and to brunch afterwards.  I generally have a fairly hectic schedule throughout the week, so I usually prefer to chillax on Father’s Day.

What is the best Father’s Day gift you have ever received?  I seriously can’t remember a best gift.  All of my Father’s Day gifts have been very special.  If I have to pick one it would probably be the first.  I don’t remember the actual gift but I do remember the essence of my emotions as I opened the gift and reflected on the significance of the day.

Is there anything you’d like to say to other Dads everywhere on Father’s Day?  I wish all fathers, who have ever been blessed to hear the gentle calls of “daddy”, a happy & joyous Father’s Day.

 

Edward Rutland, EVP, Managing Partner and father to three girls, five grandchildren and more than 50 plants.

How will you celebrate Father’s Day? I plan to spend the day with my wife, father-in-law and the family.

What is the best Father’s Day gift you have ever received? One year my three daughters flew to NY to be with me and take me out to dinner.

 

Wilton Wallace, Senior Associate and father to two sons and grandfather to one grandson and one grand-daughter.

How will you celebrate Father’s Day? Playing golf in Long Island.

What is the best Father’s Day gift you have ever received? Being able to have a great time with friends and family.

Is there anything you’d like to say to other Dads everywhere on Father’s DayI am proudest of my father status above all other accomplishment.

 

Greg Heydel, VP and Group Director, Reputation and father of two children, one grandchild and a soon-to-be grandchild, due in August!

How will you celebrate Father’s Day? I plan to have lunch with my father and mother and then have dinner with my daughter and grandson (and my son-in-law) — my wife Barbara is in both of those as well.  My son is in San Diego so we will miss him, but he probably will call.

What is the best Father’s Day gift you have ever received? I like to be with my family on Father’s day and that has been my best gift.

Is there anything you’d like to say to other Dads everywhere on Father’s Day? Children — and now grandchildren — will make you think young but feel old.

Also Happy Father’s Day to Reggie Hankerson, Samuel Orr and Kenny Anthony, all fathers to four-legged kids…although we get the feeling Reggie considers his wife to be the true parent of the Hankerson-household pet.

Happy Father’s Day to All!!!!
