Jeffrey A. Walker, age 60, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, March 18, 2013 with his family by his side after losing his courageous battle with cancer.

Jeff grew up in Avondale, PA, and was a graduate of Avon Grove High School and Penn State University. He started his career with New Castle County in 1974 as a seasonal employee and retired in 2008 from Special Services as the Internal Services Manager after 34 years of service.

Jeff is also survived by his father-in-law and mother-in-law, John and Marti Reshetar; 3 sisters-in-law; 3 brothers-in-law; and many nieces and nephews. He will also be sadly missed by his four adopted feline girls: Julie, Tinker, Halle and Mary, all rescues from Forgotten Cats, Inc. He was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Bernice Walker; and a brother, David Walker.
