Gary Wilburn Walker ,79, passed away in his home Wednesday evening. Gary was surround by his family when the Lord called him home.

Born and raised in San Angelo, the son of Asa and Izetta Walker (McKay). He had one sister Shirley Goetz Burrell, of San Angelo.

Gary was a life long resident of San Angelo. He was a graduate of San Angelo Central High School. Gary helped his uncle, Murray McKay, build the Central swimming pool and Sarah Barnhart Theater.

After marrying the love of his life, Lucille Walker (Cox), the pair moved to Ft. Worth where Gary attended Drafting College. After 8 years in Ft. Worth, Gary moved his family back home to San Angelo.

Gary and Lucille were married for 56 years until her death in 2016. They had 3 children; Carolyn Foley, of San Angelo, Gordon Walker, of Aspermont, and Johnny and wife Sheri Walker, of San Angelo.

They had 10 grandchildren, Derrick Lewis and Cathy Johnson, of Menard, Jessica Gomez and husband Tyler, of Colorado, Jeremy Walker, of Aspermont, Josh Walker, of Big Spring, Lindsay Fowler and husband Jason, of San Angelo, Heath Foley, of San Angelo, Hannah Shields and husband Bryan, of Aspermont, Heather and Echo Foley, of San Angelo, Diana Pennywitt and husband Kane, of Mansifeld Ohio, and Dausen Walker, of San Angelo.

14 great-grandchildren. Michael Shields, Kevin Johnson, Acelyn Fowler, Taelyn Walker, Ryland Foley, Bentley Shields, Sara Odgen, Liam Fowler, Miracle & Maylasia Foley, Jaxson Pennywitt, Aubrey Shields, Bryson Pennywitt, Gunner Shields.

He had many nieces and nephews.

If you were looking for Gary chances are, he was out in his wood shop making a new master piece. He loved to make things out of mesquite wood. If he wasn’t in his shop, you could find him out on the water with a rod in his hand. Gary was also a huge hunter and avid reader. He didn’t meet a book he didn’t like.

He will be deeply miss, but we find joy in knowing he is reunited with his loved ones. Catch a big one papa!

Thinking of Gary can't be just one memory. He was my hero. Always a smile, easy to laugh, everyone enjoyed being around him. What I remember most is his smile when someone mentioned he had to pay for that motorhome after all and the light in his eyes when he talked about working with mesquite. One of the good things in life was having a cousin like Gary. All my family loved him and will miss him so much.

Truly heartfelt sympathies to his family,
Cousin Wanda Voight
