Bill was predeceased by his wife, Charlotte Ann Walker (nee Gates), his mother, Mary Eleanor Walker (nee Clement), his father William Alexander Walker, his brothers John (Bob) Robert and his wife Agnes, Jim and his wife Shirley, Russel and his wife Bunny, and George and his wife Alma. Bill leaves behind his daughter Ellie Walker, his sister Cathy and brother-in-law Henry Froese, and his niece Mary Juneau and her family. Bill was born on July 26, 1943 in Saskatoon. He was born in a boxcar his family was living in as they were building their house on Kilburn Avenue. He worked for the City of Saskatoon for over 30 years in various arenas, the campground, and on the golf courses. Bill was well-known for his gift of the gab and his ability to speak to anyone. He loved walking, reading westerns, working outside, and taking care of his dogs. He will be sadly missed. Internment of William and Charlotte will take place at the Milden Cemetery on May 12, 2018 at 11:00am. A memorial service will follow in the lower hall of Third Avenue United Church at 2:00pm.
