Aug. 21, 1944 - April 13, 2013
On April 13, 2013, James Russell Walker went to be with his Lord after a brave fight with cancer. The family is blessed in knowing that he is out of pain and is no longer suffering.
Jim was born in New York City on August 21, 1944 to Russell and Mary Lou Walker. He was employed by the State of Nevada DOT for almost 20 years, and was a veteran of the US Air Force. Jim enjoyed all sports, particularly golf, and he was a passionate supporter of his sons’ basketball teams. He also loved his family and most importantly, the Lord.
Jim is survived by his wife, Tanis; and five children: Teresa, Christopher (Debbie), and William, all from California, and Nicholas and Bret from Stagecoach, NV; eight grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He was a strong presence in all of our lives and will be greatly missed.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 20th at 11:30 a.m. at Sierra Lutheran High School. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Sierra Lutheran High School Booster Club (Carson City) or Bethlehem Lutheran School CPTL (Carson City).
Arrangements were in the care of Autumn Funerals & Cremations.
