Gerald Jerry Robert James Walker

Date of Death: August 9, 2018


Gerald Robert James Walker

Jerry passed away of natural causes on August 9, 2018 at the home of a friend in the Slocan Valley. He was 77.

Jerry was born on August 24th 1941 in Elnora, Alberta, the youngest child of Harold Walker and Winifred Walker (née Lowe, later Utke). He is survived by his daughter Tessa CJ Walker of Portland OR, his former partner Stephanie Judy of Kaslo B.C., and his sisters Elizabeth Truant of Trail B.C. and Barbara Walker of Vancouver B.C. and their extended families.

Jerry grew up in the Okanagan, graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1965 with a degree in music, and settled in Slocan Park in the 1970s where he worked as an electrician and plumber.

Jerry was independent, eccentric, and always interacted with the world on his own terms. He loved classical and jazz music, electronics, the I Ching, and walking the land around his home in Slocan Park. It was common to see him hitchhiking in the valley, or driving way under the speed limit while shaving or flossing his teeth.

Jerry was cremated as he wished, and his ashes scattered without a ceremony. In memory of Jerry, have a sit outside and listen to some Glenn Gould or Thelonious Monk.
