Obituary of Bobby Sherill Walker

Bobby Walker, known as “B.W.” to his fellow pipeliners was a great engineer and laid gas pipeline all over the U. S. and Canada.  He worked for Latex Construction for 45 years out of Conyers, GA.  His family would always go every summer and stay with him where ever he was working.  He was a great family man of the Christian Faith.  His children were what made him the most proud; he would always make time for them.  The he got his four grandkids and life was twice as good, and then he got his two great grandkids and one great-great grandson, and he thought life was perfect.  On weekends Bobby enjoyed watching Alabama football and NASCAR Racing.  Bobby was truly loved and will always be in our hearts forever.  Go higher Bobby till we see you again.


            Mr. Walker was a veteran of the U. S. Marine Corps and a member of Pipeline Union 320, and was of the Baptist faith.
