Son of Maurine Barrett Walker and Buckner Heber Walker, beloved husband of Roberta Walker, passed away at Savannah Cottage in Oviedo, Florida after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Walt was born in Ruston, Louisiana. When Walt was 2 years old the family moved to Florida. After graduating from high school in 1958 Walt enlisted in the Air Force. He served 4 years from 1958 to 1962 as an Aircraft Mechanic. After serving in the military he decided to further his education.

In 1969 he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering and a Master’s of Science Degree from the University of South Florida. After graduation he was recruited by Westinghouse in Tampa, Florida as a Mechanical Engineer. The Tampa plant closed in the 1980’s and he was transferred to Westinghouse Power Generation in Orlando.
