Jerry Charles Walker
Jerry Charles Walker, 76, passed away Wednesday, October 23, 2019 in Fort Worth, Texas. Jerry was born July 11, 1943 to Perry (Percy) and Dauththula (Mutt) Walker in Fort Worth, Texas.
He graduated from Poly Technical High School. Following High School he attended Sul Ross University and Tarleton State University where he actively participated in the Rodeo club riding bareback and bulls. He graduated from Texas Tech University with a BS in
Animal Science. At Tech, he continued to rodeo and even built the rodeo arena. He began his career as an Aggie at Texas A&M University by earning an MS Degree in Poultry Science. He then went to work at M&M Farm Supply in Franklin, Texas managing 800,000 laying
hens and the egg processing plant. Jerry also raised hogs and even started one of the first food trucks selling Champion Bar-B-Q with his sister and nephew at Walmart in Marlin and Stephenville, Texas. Fulfilling his quest for more education, he pursued a
JD from Texas Wesleyan School of Law (now Texas A&M University School of Law) and practiced law in Marshall and Fort Worth in the areas of criminal, family and personal injury.
Jerry loved spending time with his family and friends, fishing, reading and hitting golf balls. He had a very kind heart and was honest “to a fault” which made being an attorney difficult at times. He is a faithful Christian and a member of the First Baptist
Church in Franklin, Texas.
Jerry is survived by his wife of 51 years, Pamela Walker; a devoted daughter, Julie Walker; a sister, Jan Cason and husband, Jim; a nephew, Kurt Cason; a friend, Debbie Zimmerman; and loyal legal assistant, Sonya Parker; and his cat, KitKat. Jerry was preceded
in death by his parents.
Jerry is in the Willed Body Program at UT Southwestern in Dallas, TX for cancer research. If you wish, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.
