You are now in heaven with Jesus and your loved ones who have been waiting for you. Your mother, Fannie Walker, your “one and only true love” Gladys Walker, your great-grandson, Liam Arnold, and many brothers and sisters in Christ, are now joining you, along with the angels, singing “Safe in the Arms of Jesus.” We are thankful that you are finally at peace. You leave behind many loved ones. Your children, Faye Browning of Prineville OR; Mavrey (Jim) Uptegrove of Elk Grove, CA; Homer (Debbie) Walker Jr. of Wautoma, WI; Judi (Jeff) Geunthner of Oshkosh, WI; Mallarie (Troy) Tatro of Antigo, WI. Your grandchildren, Dawn (Brad) Brooks, Geoffry (Amanda) Franklin, Carrie Uptegrove, John Walker (Jessica Sparks), Amber (Chris) Doss, Beth (Josh) Simons, Cassie Walker, Jack (Jenny) Larsen, Jeremiah (Kathy) Larsen, Amanda (Craig) Engel, Billy Alderson, Tristin (Darrin) Fleischman, Travis and Taylor Tatro. Your great-grandchildren, Brooklyn, Madison and Dylan Franklin, CJ and Matthew Woolington, Kayley Brooks, Jasmine and Adrienne Arnold, Desiree and Gabriel Doss, Chance Walker (due in February), Kimberly, Tristen, Tanner, Brayden and Landon Larsen, and Candyce and Creighton Engel. We will be joining you, so save us a spot! You were a loving husband to Gladys for almost 50 years and were so devastated and grieved when she went home to be with the Lord, that you married Evelena Duemler so that you would have a companion and not be lonely. You were a wonderful example to all who knew you. Your preaching of the Gospel for over 70 years, all over the country, has been an inspiration and has led many to the Lord. You will be missed by the thousands of lives that you have touched. The family would like to thank all the staff at Berlin Memorial Hospital lab and day surgery; Dr. Gremminger and nurses; Dr. Shattuck, Holly and Jane; and the Green Lake nurses from Agnesian Hospice Hope for all the wonderful care that you gave our dad, grandpa and great-papa.
