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.
