Obituary of John Walker
On January 7, 2018, God reached for Max’s hand and called him home. Max was a devote family man and was a Christian.
Max was married to his first wife Mame (Pelley) Walker for 47 years, until she passed away in 1999. He then married Janette Pinsent (Walsh) Walker, and they were married for 19 years. They both enjoyed their life to the fullest.
He loved life and enjoyed making people laugh with a story or a practical joke. He overcame many adversities during his 91 years and would never complain. He love being in the woods, which was his favourite pastime and enjoyed reading his Bible on a daily basis.
