James Warren Walker, of San Tan Valley, Arizona, passed away July 31, 2020 in Sheridan, Wyoming.  He was born October 27, 1933 in The Dalles, Oregon.  He enjoyed a successful career with AT&T, ultimately contributing in supervisory roles.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Arlene Walker and sister Darlene.

He is survived by his wife, Janice Ray Walker; his brother, Tom & (Pat) Walker, his children, Brad & (Corey) Walker, (Tim) & Natalie Golightly, Scott & (Julie) Walker, Jeff & (Tiffanie) Walker, his 13 grandchildren, 2 step grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and 1 step great-grandchild.  His interaction and attachment to his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren was of greatest importance to him in his life.  He was a “family man”.  His Church service over his lifetime is noteworthy. He loved playing basketball and this recreation served him well in many ways for 53 years.  He loved the mountains and fly fishing.  He loved to fix things and was fearless when it came to learning what needed to be learned and applying that learning and knowledge to anything in his path.  We love our husband, dad, grandpa, great-grandpa, brother and uncle.

    We are very sorry to hear of his passing. We always enjoyed having him in our home. He was a great example of honesty, hard work and service to others. He will be missed! You’re in our hearts and prayers.

  • Walker Family, Soooo sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. He was such a good friend to the Kennelly family. I offer the condolences of all of my children as well as myself at this special time. You are in our hearts and prayers.

  • Jim was my only brother and our sister Darlene passed several years ago. Jim is 9 years older than me and we grew up without really being the typical brothers, by the time I was 9 he had graduated and moved on to his career and family . The last 15 years ago we got to know each other ad spent a few summers on the Big Horn Mts, fishing and enjoying each other. Jim will be greatly missed and will be in our thought forever, He has a large family that will continue his legacy. I see aa lot of Jim in his three boys and his daughter is a so much like Arlene, she was good mother to them all, So Long Jim, see you down the road.

  • Mr.Walker as I addressed him lived across the street from me. I have so many fond memories of him and the entire family. I have been truly blessed that God put them in my life from such a young age
