Richard L. Walker, age 74, died peacefully on Monday January 1st, 2018, at Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville, Georgia. Richard is survived by his daughters, Wendy and Kim Walker, both of Snellville; his son Richie Walker, of Winder; and his sister, Brenda Tharp, of Stone Mountain. He is preceded in death by his loving wife, Linda Walker, and his parents, Ernest Troy and Susan Evelyn Walker. Richard was a wonderful Husband, Daddy, and Grandpa, aka “Bubba”. He was lucky enough to marry the love of his life, Linda, in 1965, and together they had three children: Wendy, Kim, and Richie. Through Richie, he was blessed with three amazing grandchildren that were the light of his life: Cody, Lexi, and Nathan Walker. He loved spending time with family, hunting, fishing, and rooting for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, just to be contrary! In later years he and Linda really enjoyed many wonderful trips to the Blue Ridge Mountains, always captivated by the beauty and peace they found there. He will always be remembered for his feisty personality, his quick wit, his inability to meet a stranger, and his willingness to do for others whatever he could, whenever he could. Please join us in celebrating Richard’s life on Sunday, January 7th at Wages & Sons Funeral Home in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Visitation will be from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, with the service at 3:00pm. Flowers can be sent to Wages & Sons Funeral Home in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

  1. Hello i went to school with kim walker i know what you are going through because i lost my mom prayers are being sent

  2. Sending prayers for Kim and her family. May your happy memories help heal your broken hearts and may you find comfort knowing your mama and daddy have been reunited.

  3. Mr Richard was one of my Dad’s (Junior Archer) best friends. They worked on many projects together, always joking and picking at each other. When Dad’s health was failing, he always checked on him and spent many hours with us while he was in the hospital. After Dad passed, he continued to check on us.

    I hired him several times to paint and do odd jobs at my house and when I would ask him if he liked the color I had chosen, his response was “I think it looks great from my house”.

    Mr Richard was a dear friend. He was loved and will be missed.

  4. Kimmie, we are so sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is never easy, but time will help ease the pain you are feeling. You are in our prayers during this difficult time. With love, Cyndi Williamson Bedard and RIchard Bedard

  5. Wendy, Kim & Richie, we are so sorry for your loss. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Mike & Debbie Collins Stewart.

  6. Richard was a wonderful person always willing to help others. Our family met him through baseball. He helped my father coach the boys Richie and Chris’ team. He was always ready to help and did help the boys to be their best! We all thought a lot of Richard Walker and he was never a strange in the years since. He will be greatly missed.

  7. I just learned today that Richard had died. I am so very sorry for your loss. He was a wonderful person. He spent a lot of time with my dad. Mother and I did not know until someone mentioned it today. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family. He was a great guy.
