Jeffrey Charles WALKER|
January 17, 1962 ~ June 11, 2013
It is with great sadness that we write about the passing of Jeff-he was a kind and generous friend, a devoted father and husband, and a dedicated skier and O'Dea sports fan. He was a 22-year employee of Quality Press Printing.
Jeff passed on Tuesday, June 11, after a 2-year battle with Lymphoma. He endured his cancer and chemo treatments with a brave and stoic attitude. His love of life and his ability to find humor will live on in his children, nephews and nieces, and all those he touched during his short 51 years on this earth. We will all remember his jovial attitude and profound sense of peace during the final week of his life when he had the opportunity to say to good-bye to his family and dear friends.
He leaves behind his wife of 24 years, Kimberly Macaulay; his three sons, Angus (Chase) age 20, Siever age 15, and foster son, Jimmy age 19. He also leaves behind his dearly beloved sister, Muffy Walker and the extended Walker Family of Bozeman, MT. He is recently predeceased by his mother, Sandra Bolstad Walker, and his darling "Gramma Raisin," Marjorie Bolstad. He is the son of Charles Larry Walker of Shaw Island.
Jeff attended the University of Washington and was a member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. He was a lifelong member of the Swiss Ski Club and a veteran member of the Steven's Pass Hosting team. He was a Cub Scout leader for his sons' troop at St. John School, and had many friends with whom he golfed, skied, and watched O'Dea sporting events.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent in Jeff's memory to the scholarship fund at O'Dea High School or the Endowment Fund at St. John School. Funeral Mass to be held at St. John Parish, 121 N. 80th Street, on Friday, June 21st, at 11:00 AM.
