George Walker

Tribute

Walker George, B.Sc., A.L.S., born September 15, 1923. After a bout of pneumonia George passed away peacefully with his wife Carole by his side at the Cowichan District Hospital February 10, 2012 at age 88.
George will live forever in the heart of his wife Carole. He is also lovingly remembered by his sons Robert ( Darlene) of Las Vegas, Ian of Vancouver, James (Carol) of London, England, sister Joan Burkett of Abbottsford, brother Lorne Walker (Geri) of Calgary as well as many nieces and nephews.
George was a proud army Veteran who fought overseas during WW2. In 1950 he started his own Engineering and Surveying Company with a fellow Engineering student in Edmonton, AB. He was honored in 2008 by the City of Edmonton for his work as a surveyor by having a large community in south Edmonton named after him called
“Walker Lakes”. George requested that no service be held. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in his honor to the Duncan S.P.C.A. 7550 Bell McKinnon Road Duncan, BC V9L 6B1.
