Douglas Blair Walker. It is finished, the battle of Doug's rare heart cancer is over. He went home to Heaven to be with his Lord Jesus and Heavenly Father on Friday, Dec. 4, 2015, in his home surrounded by his loving family and friends. He was only 51 years old.
Born Feb. 8, 1964, to W. Clair Sr. and Margaret Ann (Pendleton) Walker of Reynoldsville, Pa. They survive.
United in marriage to beloved wife Valerie J. (Reed) Walker on Feb. 12, 1983, at Paradise United Church of Christ by Rev. Barry Fillman.
Devoted father to son Adam Clair Walker and Stephanie Rooney, daughters Kiley, Abby and Alice; daughter Rachael Ann Walker-Hiles and Robert Roseman Jr., children Casey and Corey Roseman and granddaughter Payton Ann Hiles; son Bradley John and Stephani Reitz Walker, grandsons Wesley Joseph and namesake Oakley Blair Walker. Beloved brother, William (Bill) C. and Monica A. Shaffer Walker; cherished sister Lynda C. Walker Brooks, Keith D. Brooks. All family of the Soldier/Sykesville Area.
Son-in-law of John S. and Carol E. Reed of Reynoldsville, Pa.; brother-in-law of Diane Reed and Michael Carlson, Dean and Sandra Penvose Reed, Vickie Reed and Tom Rafferty, Brent and Kenni Steffy Reed; and many nieces and nephews in the Reynoldsville and DuBois areas.
He was a 1982 graduate of DuBois Area High School.
Doug was employed as a machinist by Niagara Cutter Reynoldsville for 32 years. Doug was a certified archery instructor and enjoyed teaching many area youth and people to shoot a compound bow. He competed nationally from Kentucky to New York and Indiana. Doug's favorite pastime other than shooting his bow was to jump on his Harley motorcycle and head out west with his brother Bill, cousins and friends. He recently rode the "Trail of the Dragon" in Deals Gap, Tenn. He also enjoyed playing in the many softball tournaments set up by Keith and Lynda. When he was not riding his motorcycle or shooting his bow with his children and Charlie, you could always find him spending time with his children and precious grandchildren.
Doug's scripture was the 23rd Psalm and he cannot wait to see all his family and friends in Heaven again someday.
If you would like any donations in Doug's memory his was always Make-A-Wish, because he knew some of the children this organization benefited, or Soldier Community Church or Paradise United Church of Christ for all their loving support and prayers.
Friends will be received from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 7 in the Bernard P. Snyder Funeral Home, Reynoldsville. Funeral services will be conducted Tuesday, Dec. 8, at 11 a.m. officiated by Revs. Kevin Brooks and Audra Krise.
