Grover, Wyoming: Walker Patterson "Skipper" Inman, Jr. died peacefully in his sleep on February 24, 2010 in Denver, Colorado. He was born March 11, 1952 in Florence, S. C., the only child of Walker Patterson Inman and Georgia Polin. He was orphaned at the age of 10 and lived with his aunt Doris Duke, internationally known heiress and philanthropist. They remained close until her death and Walker was appointed executor of her estate. Walker was a passionate free spirit, and adventurer and explorer, a true swashbuckler. His total life was centered around his family. As a family man his two children, Patterson and Georgia, were more important to him than life itself. His true love and soul mate Daralee gave him the contentment he was searching for his whole life. Walker traveled on his much loved yacht, "Devine Decadence", from South Carolina and discovered the South Pacific. He also spent a lot of time with his nephews and niece, David, Bart, Mat, and Heather. After a major refit, he took the boat back to Hawaii, meeting his friend and Captain Brett Armstrong. The boat is now kept in New Zealand, where he enjoyed extensive cruising and dinner parties on board. He was a gourmet cook and an avid gun, knife, sword, and steam engine collector. He looked forward to training his camel, Sinbad. A pyrotechnics expert, his 4th of July fireworks displays are a legend in the Wyoming Valley below his mountaintop home in Grover. His quiet generosity changed many lives. He divided his time between his Grover ranch, "Outlaw Acres" and Greenfield Plantation near Georgetown, South Carolina, that he inherited from his father. He is survived by his sister Susan and her children, David, Bart, Mat, and Heather. He will be sadly missed by his faithful Mastiffs, Doolie and Doolie, Jr., "DJ"; his twin children, Georgia Noel Lahi Inman and Walker Patterson Inman, III; along with his wife, Daralee Inman. Services will be held at the Holy Family Catholic Church, Afton, Wyoming on March 11, 2010 at 1:00 pm and at Greenfield Plantation, 2713 Choppee Rd., Georgetown, S. C. on March 13, 2010 at 1:00 pm.
