Richard Walker Obituary

Richard Lloyd Walker passed away at the age of 71, surrounded by family at home in Antelope, California, on Thursday, January 4, 2024. 

Richard was born on February 6, 1952, to Lloyd C Walker and Christine Emma Bensch at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Green County, Ohio. He was the oldest of five children - Tori Fernandes, Gary Walker, Teri Chittock, and Kari Ziegenhagen. 

His father was in the United States Air Force and Richard spent his childhood living in Japan and various cities in the United States. Richard enjoyed spending the summers of his youth working on family ranches in Wyoming - riding horses, bailing hay, rounding up and branding animals, and spending time with cousins. 

Richard spent his high school years in Merced, California. He played football and was on the track and field team at Merced High School, where he graduated in 1970. He loved to fish and hunt with friends in his free time. Richard served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from 1972-74 in the Canada Ontario Mission.

Richard is survived by Shannon Horner Walker, his wife of 48 years. They met as students at Brigham Young University and were married in Oakland, California.  Richard and Shannon moved to Sacramento, California, in 1975. Richard began running his father’s business, Ming Auto Beauty Center. Several years later Richard decided to change careers and went back to school to study Accounting. He became a CPA in 1997. Richard eventually opened his own practice and had many clients that became life-long friends. 

Throughout life Richard enjoyed playing golf, softball, basketball, snow and water skiing, and spending time with his family. He especially loved his role as grandfather and being able to spoil his grandkids and supporting them in all their activities. He lived a full life of service to his church and his community.  

Richard is survived by his children Erin (Dave) Corbridge, Robby (Cami) Walker, Kelsey (Tommy) Jensen, Jake (Shelby) Walker, Sawyer (Maddie) Walker, and 20 grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother.
