Obituary for Jack R. Walker

Jack Robert Walker 89, of Randolph Iowa entered into rest on Friday, Aug 2nd, 2019 at Nebraska Med Center in Omaha Neb. He was born on March 11th, 1930 in Palmyra Nebraska to Ralph Whittier Walker and Juletta Nellie (Bailey) Walker.

He was united in marriage to Dorothy Ann (Bennett) Walker Nov. 1949 and to this union 4 children were born, John, David, Annette & Deanna. He was later married to Thelma (Taylor) Walker on April 4th, 1969.
His family moved to Randolph in February 1944, where Jack continued school and graduated from Randolph High School. He returned to the family farm and farmed the rest of his life. He served in the Army National Guards for 4 yrs in Shenandoah Iowa. He was honorably discharged in June 1952. He enjoyed coon hunting (in his younger years) fishing, and traveling and camping with their friends and family. He also enjoyed his grandkids and great grandkids. He took great pride in keeping the farm looking good. He would never let the boys help plant the crop when they were growing up as he said they couldn’t plant straight enough rows.

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Peggy Jean, wife Thelma and step son Curtis Miller. He is survived by his 4 children, John (Vicki) Walker of Greeley, Co, David (Sherrie) Walker of Tabor, Ia., Annette Walker of Sidney, Ia & Deanna (John) Griffith of Shenandoah, Ia., step-son Dennis Miller of Creston, Ia and step-daughter-n-law Barb Miller of Thurman, Ia.
