Bryan died Wednesday, December 21, 2016 after a long illness. Born in Augusta, G.A. on October 18, 1939, he was the son of the late Benjamin Hagan Walker, Jr. and Mary Miller Young Walker.

His intellect earned him a scholarship to Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama, and later graduated from the University of South Carolina and the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Bryan's life was distinguished by his service to his country as a Naval doctor during the Vietnam War and received a Naval Combat V Citation. He was a founder of Internal Medicine Associates in Lexington and later served as Medical Chief of Staff at Lexington Hospital.

Bryan was noted for his keen intellect and as a skilled diagnostician. He loved a good joke and was known for his sense of humor. Most of all, he was a loyal husband, father, son, sibling and a trusted friend to many. Generous with his time and resources, he adored playing Santa for his extensive family and friends at Christmas.

Bryan is survived by his wife of 45 years, Virginia Cleveland Walker; sons, Bryan L. Walker. Jr., of Columbia, and H. Cleveland Walker, of Columbia; a sister, Mary Margaret "Peggy" Hatch (Gerry); brothers, Benjamin "Bunny" H. Walker III (Betsey) and Joseph M. Walker (Kerry) all of Augusta, GA; and numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his brother, Charles "Charlie" Bruce Walker.

Donations in Bryan's honor may be made to the Lexington Medical Foundation, 2720 Sunset Boulevard, West Columbia, SC 29169.
