Roger Carl Walker
August 31, 1948 - June 20, 2022
With sad hearts we regret to announce the sudden passing of our beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather and Friend.
Dad was a man of many talents. He was happiest when he was tinkering, building, or trying to figure out how something worked, earning him the name Mr. Fix It. He had many hobbies; his favorites were challenging people to play cards or darts. He was a hard worker, starting his career with Everett & Smith’s in Bridgetown. He ran his own business in appliance repair, was a school bus driver and ended his career at King’s Transit.
He was well known by many for his outgoing personality and welcoming smile. He leaves behind his wife of 51 years Carol (nee) Rent, daughter Paulette (Chris) of Digby; grandchildren Brandi (Abby) of Moncton, Alexzander and Patrick of Digby; great grandson Zayne of Digby. Roger is also survived by brothers: Mickey (Neet), Shelburne, Eugene, Oakville, Ont., Ralph (Betty), Coldlake, Alberta, Lewis (Marilyn) of Centreville, Lawrence of Calgary; sisters: Pauline (Harold) of Lake LaRose, Valerie of Wolfville. Brothers-in-law Gary (Sharleen), Fredericton, Michael, Bridgetown; sisters-in-law Sharon (Jim) Wiarton, Ont., Betty (Blaine), Marilyn (Don), Nancy, all of Bridgetown, as well as many, many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by son Ron; brother, Victor; sister, Marie Joyce and brother-in-law, Terry.
