The Arms of Sean Francis Forrester

Design Rationale: Purple is a colour of the armigerís university, Wilfrid Laurier University, and his wifeís university, Western Ontario. Gold is his favorite color. The hunting-horn is found in Scottish Forrester arms, and it makes a reference to the name. The golden retriever is his favourite dog breed. The beaver is a symbol of Canada and, as a builder of lodges, also represents the armigerís involvement in Freemasonry. The fleur-de-lis represents his service to the world Scouting movement; it is also found in Scottish Morrison arms, an allusion to his wife's maiden name. She and the armigerís mother were both born in Quebec, which is also represented by the fleur-de-lis. The Loyalist military coronet refers to the armigerís ancestor, who fought for the Crown in the 1st Regiment of the Westchester County Militia during the American Revolutionary War. The fact that the beaver is holding the fleur-de-lis with its left paw indicates that he is left-handed.

Born and raised outside Toronto Canada, the armiger graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo Canada with an honours bachelor of business administration degree. He also holds a master of business administration degree from Bowling Green University in Bowling Green, Ohio USA, and a Master of Science degree in project management from the University of Wisconsin at Platteville, Wisconsin USA. The armiger has further earned designations as a Project Management Professional (PMP) from the Project Management Institute and a Chartered Manager (CMgr) from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) in the UK. Professionally, the armiger is a senior executive for a global Fortune 500 company in Ohio USA. He is husband to his childhood sweetheart, father to two wonderful children, a Mason, a Scouter, and a HAM, with an interest in heraldry and genealogy.
