Victor L. Walker

Victor Leroy Walker, age 99, of Indianapolis, Indiana, passed away on Saturday evening, June 8, 2024, just a few months shy of his 100th birthday.  Born August 4, 1924, in Kirklin, Indiana, he was the son of the late Maurice and Flossie (Price) Walker. He was a 1942 graduate of Kirklin High School.

He worked for various companies as a long-haul driver.  He retired from Schneider Transport out of Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1989 after 12 years with the company.  He was also very proud to be a member of the Teamsters Union. 

Driving was not only his career, but also supported one of his favorite hobbies.  Victor loved photography, and being on the road opened the door to all the wonderful subject matter across this beautiful country.  He was also very fond of technology, especially when it came to his computer.

Victor is survived by 2 sons, Randel L. Walker of Ft. Meade, Florida, and Rick A. Walker of Ft. Meade, Florida; 6 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; 6 great-great-grandchildren; and by his sister, Ileana Ruthann Warner of Washington state.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Maurice and Flossie (Price) Walker; his brother, Glen Walker; and by his wife, Phyllis Jean (Greathouse) Walker on March 12, 2005.  She and Victor were married on June 10, 1945.

Graveside services will be held at 10:00 am on Thursday, June 20, 2024, at Crown View Cemetery in Sheridan, Indiana.
