Mr. Myers Glenn Walker, age 86 passed away on the afternoon of Sunday, February 7, 2021 at Southeast Georgia Health System in St. Marys, GA.
Myers Glenn Walker was born in Hastings, Pennsylvania in 1934 to the son of a coal miner. Having spent his childhood in the Boy Scouts, Glenn proudly earned the God and Country Award as a teenager. Upon graduating high school, he joined the Air Force at the age of 18 and honorably served his Country with pride during the Korean War. After his military service he came to Saint Marys, GA and he worked at Gilman Kraft Bag Plant for many years. Glenn is also a survivor of the Thiokol plant explosion in 1971. Later he went on to work and retire from Anheuser Busch.
In his younger days he enjoyed taking his kids, nephews, nieces, and family friends to Borrell Creek to go fishing and swimming.
Then as the years went on, he enjoyed watching his kids, grandkids, great-grands kids, and any of the other family members get together. One of his favorite past times was enjoying a good BBQ on the grill or a Low Country Boil and hanging by the pool. Usually completing these fun gatherings was an ice-cold beer. Listening to Glenn play guitar and sing with his beloved “Feetsie” is one of his children’s fondest memories. He will be forever missed, but his family knows he is once again singing with the love of his life in heaven.
Mr. Walker is survived by his children, Jason (Angie) Walker of Kingsland, GA, Tammy (Sandra) Walker and David (Terrie) Walker, all of St. Marys, GA; his grandchildren, Ashton Walker, Halie Walker, Jacob Walker, all of Kingsland, GA, Adrian Walker, Lauren Walker, Ryan Walker, all of Fernandina Beach, FL, Carlie Dumas and Sloane Walker, both of St. Marys, GA, and Zan Leakway of Denver, CO; his great-grandchildren, Madison and Allison; his brother, John (Jackie) Seare; his brothers in-law, James Wade (Lisa) Petty, Larry Petty, and Joe Frost; his sisters in-law, Mary Catherine Strickland and Shirley (James) Hall; and his numerous nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, David Walker and Geneive Myers, Mr. Walker also joins his beloved wife of 59 years, Hattie Louise “Feetsie” Walker and sister, Joann Ciuffetelli in Heaven.
