Rickey Price Walker

Rickey Price Walker, 66, of Linden VA passed away May 16th at his home.

He was born April 20, 1954 in Front Royal VA, the son of Daisy Carter Walker and Alonzo “Bud” Walker.

He was a graduate of Fauquier County High School and attended Ferrum College. He is survived by his two sons : Rickey Price Walker Jr. of Linden VA and Alijah Patrick Walker of Winchester VA; his mother, one brother, Jerry Walker (Ellen) of Linden VA; sisters Charmaine Walker-Lott of Luneburg, Germany, Joni VanDoren (Danny) of Linden VA and Jodi (Tammy) Wells of Dumfries,VA. two granddaughters Kassidy Sweetwater Walker, Deliah Moon Walker, both of Linden VA, and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, Alonzo, and sisters Lisa Walker and Terry Pelter.

Rickey was very kind hearted and respectful of all animals. He enjoyed watching the dawning of each day and spent many hours outside tending to the yard, his garden, admiring nature and in thoughtful contemplation while watching the sun set.

He worked hard, asked for little, rarely complained and appreciated what many would take for granted. He loved the simple things in life and that’s the way he preferred to live it.

Rickey particularly loved his family and visits from his adoring sons and granddaughters.

He will be sadly missed by all those that knew and loved him.

    Rickey was my cousin and more like a brother. We were the same age, played together as children, went all through school together and had the same circle of friends. He was a good man, gentle, kind and compassionate. There are too few left like him in this world. His death has taken a part of my soul. Safe home, Rickey. There are plenty waiting to welcome you whom we both loved. I love you and will miss you.
