With great sadness we share the passing of our father, Robert Howard Walker on Thursday March 11, 2021. He was at his home and farm that he has lived at for over 60 years. He was a very proud yet humble farmer.
Dad was born in 1937 to Ernest & Gertrude (Small) Walker. Being a farmer was something that always seemed natural to him. It was a love of labour and he was good at it. The knowledge he has passed down will forever be remembered. He also appreciated the history of farming and acquired an impressive collection of antique equipment over the years.
His legacy will be carried on by his children Robert Scott Walker & wife Alicia, and Cheryl & husband Joe Lariviere as well as his grandchildren Kolten & Maddison. Being the oldest of his siblings he was always looked up to and is survived by Murray Walker, Don Walker and Marg Chaput. He will also be remembered by his children from a previous marriage which includes Kenneth, Janice and Jill with their children and grandchildren. He will also be missed by many neighbours and camping friends who he has come to love over the years.
Times with family and friends were meaningful to him, even if they were spent in the field. He always wanted us to know that he loved us and he was proud of us.
His company for a morning coffee before starting the work day will forever be missed by his son Robert.

Love you Dad,
Cheryl & Joseph Lariviere and Robert & Alicia Walker
