Frank H. Walker, 86, of Cumming, formerly of Hingham, Mass., passed away Sept. 23, 2012. Frank was born in Hingham, Mass., and lived most of his life in Massachusetts. He was a graduate of Hingham High School and attended Boston University, where he was a member of the University's hockey team and later the coach of the Hingham Youth Hockey Program for many years.
He was a Mason and Fifty-Year Medal Member of Old Colony Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Hingham, Mass., and an active member of various Masonic Fraternal Organizations.
Frank served his country honorably in the European Theatre of Operations during World War II as a member of the U.S. Army 80th Infantry Division and participated in three major campaigns: Ardennes (Battle of the Bulge), Rhineland, and Central Europe. He also participated in the Army of Occupation and was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge.
He retired from the U.S. Postal Service as Postmaster of Pittsfield, Mass. He then helped his eldest son start and operate a successful business. After he and Priscilla moved to Georgia to be close to their children, he went back to work as a golf marshal at St. Ives Country Club in Johns Creek.
Frank was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and patriot. He enjoyed playing golf, hunting and fishing with his sons, taking gambling trips to casinos with Priscilla and friends, and crawfish boils with the family.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 53 years, Priscilla Dowd Walker.
He is survived by his children, Kurt A. Walker of Roswell, Kent A. Walker of Woodstock, Kyle A. Walker and his wife Janet of Dahlonega, Katrina A. Walker of Dahlonega; and his grandchildren, Zoe, Cole, Jessie and Luke.
A private service will be held at Gracemont Assisted Living Facility in Cumming, where he made good friends who enjoyed his great sense of humor and quick wit.
A memorial service will be held in Hingham, Mass., at a later date, followed by an internment together with his wife, in the Massachusetts National Cemetery on Cape Cod.
Banister Funeral Home of Dahlonega is in charge of the arrangements.
