  1. To all the family, extended family, and so many friends:
    I know each and every one of you had a special place in your heart for Robert Walker. We were blessed to have Robert in our lives. I am so thankful for the years I have known him. He was truly a special person. My prayers are with all of you during this hard time. It breaks my heart that he had to leave us but I know by the fruits he showed that he is basking in Jesus love and presence now. I am sure he will be hard at work in heaven helping the angels and blessing them. He will truly be remembered in Zip City as one of the best men in the community. We will never forget him ! Love and prayers to all of you, Robert would want you to carry on and keep smiling and working for the better of the community.

  3. There are so many memories in my life of Steve Walker and the other Walker siblings he had; I am saddened by his passing; but it is Heaven’s gain and he has heard, “Well done, my good and faithful servant”!!!….To the family; there are numerous memories in my mind but the one memory is that there was Love in Uncle Pete & Aunt Lucy’s home, lots of delicious food, fun, laughter and of course their love of Jesus… May God guide the family through their journey of grief from mourning to Joy!!!…Love you dearly!!

  4. Robert gave me my first job in the trucking industry. He was always a pleasure to work for and I enjoyed the lunches he would occasionally take his employees out for. I will be thinking of his family in the days ahead. Remember the good times to get you through the hard times.
    Isaiah 58:8
    New King James Version
    8 Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
    Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
    And your righteousness shall go before you;
    The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

    Most sincerely,
