William Franklin Walker
Seward resident William Franklin Walker died Sunday, Feb. 10, 2008, after a long illness. He was 60.
A family memorial service is planned for the spring in Ninilchik.
Mr. Walker was born in Wilmington, Ohio, in 1947. He moved to Kenai Peninsula with his family in 1958 and graduated from Ninilchik High School in 1964. While in high school he sang with the Kenai Peninsula Choral Society. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1965 and served in Vietnam with the 3rd Marine Division. He also served with Alaska Army National Guard from 1977 to 1981.
"Bill was a fun loving person who always had a joke handy and could keep you laughing. He had a knack for cooking and carpentry, and he was a whiz at repairing things mechanical," his family said.
He is survived by his mother, Briar McCutcheon of Seward; and brothers, Thomas and Daniel of Seward and David of St. Helens, Ore.; sisters, Amy Garroutte of Ninilchik and Peggy Walker of Juneau; son, Jason of Portland, Ore.; stepdaughter, Jamie Burkhart of Canyonville, Ore.; and other family members.
Arrangements were made by Anchorage Funeral Home.
