Roger Nathaniel Walker, Sr. was born on May 25, 1942 in Miami, Florida and passed away on July 3, 2018. Roger is preceded in death by his first wife of 50 years, Sandra Jo Buckner, father and mother, Aubrey Odes Walker and Mallie Fay Walker Thomas, his brother Aubrey Odes Walker, Jr., and sisters Helen Louise Forguson, Quinon Corrine Walker, Dorothy Estelle Walker, and Donna Faye Walker.
He is survived by his wife, Lois Ayers Walker; three children Sherry Parantha (husband Reko), Pete Walker ( wife Reagan), and Wade Walker; four grandchildren, Ryan Walker, Hallie Walker, Brandon Toulis and Abbey Joe Parantha.
Roger graduated from Belle Glade High School in 1961 and married his first love, Sandra Jo Buckner, in May 1963. He was a loving husband, a devoted father, and most notably, an adoring grandfather. Lovingly referred to as "Rog", he was a generous friend and fierce protector of his family. He was a strong man with a soft heart. He bled John Deere green and gold during the work week and Florida Gator orange and blue on Saturdays! Go Gators! Roger remarried almost one year ago to an "angel on earth," Lois Ayers of Palm City, Florida. His presence on earth will be deeply missed.
The family will receive friends on Saturday July 7th from 10 AM until 1130 AM at the First Baptist Church-Clewiston. Memorial Service will follow at 1130 with Pastor Steve Weeks officiating.
