October 22, 1936 — September 29, 2017

Larry Olney Walker of Denton, Texas, passed away on Friday, September 29, 2017.

He was born in Albany to Mabel and Percy Walker. He was raised on a 150 acre farm in Albany along with his four sisters.


Larry was an avid golfer and amateur photographer. He also enjoyed many hunting and fishing trips with his dad and Uncle Norman.

He married Arlene Walker in 1959. They had two children — Eric, born in 1961 and Vicky the following year.

He was a force in our family and lit up the room when he walked in the door. We will miss all of the fun he gave us.


He is survived by son Eric and wife Kim of Roanoke, Texas; daughter Vicky and husband Lance of Fort Worth, Texas; four grandchildren, Stephanie, Nicole, Drew and Blaine; great-granddaughter Addison; sisters Sharon Belcher, Audrienne Whitley and Diane Wilson; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Arlene; and sister Barbara Thompson.

A memorial service will follow at a later date.
