Arthur K. Walker, 81, died June 14, 2021, surrounded by his family in Neenah, WI.
Arthur was born June 18, 1939, in Egeria, WV, to Kerby and Lorena (Mills) Walker. He graduated from Egeria High School and enlisted in the United States Air Force, where he served for 8 years. He retired from AEP as a lineman (Area Serviceman) and would often say that he put in an additional 10 years of overtime at his job. He enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, jigsaw puzzles, playing cards, and traveling.
Arthur was preceded in death by his beautiful wife of 61 years, Betty (Beale) Walker.
Arthur is survived by his 3 children: Denise Thomas, Arthur (Melissa) Walker, Jr., and Betsy (Brad) Ellenberger. He is also survived by his 5 grandchildren: Ben, Rachel, and Hannah Thomas, Logan Darnel, and Gwyneth Ellenberger.
A memorial service with military honors for Arthur will be held on Friday, July 23, 2021, at Mills Cemetery in Arthur’s hometown of Egeria, WV, at 3:00pm EST.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Fox Valley Memory Project (1800 Appleton Rd., Menasha, WI, 54952; foxvalleymemoryproject.org/donate), which brought Arthur so much joy.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks and gratitude to Memory Care of Neenah and ThedaCare at Home Hospice, especially Lexi, Claudia, Roberta, Paula, and Dr. Kimberly Berg.
