Mayor Walker, a life-long member of Warner Robins First Baptist Church, entered into rest on Monday, September 28, 2009. He was born at Macon Hospital on April 3, 1949. Following a successful commercial and real estate career, Walker entered Warner Robins city politics as a "late arrival" in 1992 in an unsuccessful bid for the office of mayor. He was elected to the office of mayor two years later, in 1994, and served until his death earlier this week. He was involved in another campaign for the office of mayor at the time of his death. Walker lived most of his life in Warner Robins, venturing from home only while he attended Georgia College in Milledgeville and while he served on active duty with the United States Army at Fort Knox, Ky. and Fort Dix, NJ. He attended Houston County public schools and graduated from Northside High School in Warner Robins as a self-proclaimed "Proud Eagle" in 1967. Mr. Walker was an active and supporting member of dozens of church, civic and fraternal organizations in the city, state and at the national level. His parents, Homer J. Walker Jr. and Marian Walker, preceded him in death. His memory will forever be treasured by his loving wife of 39 years, Patricia Sammons Walker; daughter D. Stephanie Walker; grandchildren, Joshua and Amanda Rainey, Warner Robins; brothers, Jay (Mary) Walker, Warner Robins; Tommy (Penny) Walker, Fort Valley; nephew, C.J. Walker, Warner Robins; niece, Sarah Walker, Warner Robins. Mayor Walker will lie in state Thursday, October 1, 2009, from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. at McCullough Funeral Home; then the family will receive friends Thursday evening from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at McCullough Funeral Home. Friday, October 2, 2009, Mayor Walker will lie in state from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m., then funeral services will begin 2:00 p.m. at the Homer J. Walker Jr. Civic Center Auditorium, Reverend Willie Reed, Bishop Jeff Poole and former State Representative Larry Walker officiating. Interment will follow in Magnolia Park Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to the Masonic Children's Home, 1417 Nottingham Drive, Macon GA 31211 or the Shriners Children's Hospital, P.O. Box 31356, Tampa Florida 33631-3365.
