Roosevelt Walker Jr.


     Roosevelt Walker Jr., age 85, was created by his heavenly father and earthly parents the late Roosevelt Walker Sr. and Lizzie (Brown) Walker in Prospect, Virginia on November 16, 1937.  Roosevelt peacefully departed this world to live with his heavenly father in eternal glory on April 8, 2023.

     Roosevelt led an eventful life in his younger years being the typical mischievous, greedy little “boy” running around picking on his sisters.  When reflecting about his life, he could not stop laughing about how he would grab the largest item first while his sisters got the smaller items.  One time he thought he grabbed the largest orange, BUT only  realized later he had grabbed a grapefruit instead.  His experience that day, taught him that “bigger isn’t always better”.  As a youngster, he loved hunting and catching June Bugs. He would catch so many  June Bugs that he instantly received the nicknames “June Bug and Bug”.  Later in life, he was  known by family and friends as “Roe” or “Walkman;” however, those closest to him still called him “June Bug or Bug.”

     Roosevelt left the country life for the city life, and on October 24, 1964, he entered into a union of holy matrimony with the love of his life,  Ann Jewel Tucker of 58 years.  His union to Ann blessed them with three wonderful and amazing children Sharon, Dennis and Priscilla.

     Roosevelt was a dedicated and hard worker. He retired from the federal government in October 1996 where he spent 33 years as a truck driver for The Smithsonian Institution.

     Roosevelt enjoyed helping his family, working on cars, fixing things around the house and was an avid CB radio user who went by the handle named “Walkman”.  He also enjoyed playing spades and bid whist, checkers, watching boxing and football and attending his grandchildren’s events.

      He strongly believed that “your word is your bond,” “always strive to do your best” and “never be late.”  He loved telling his children and grandchildren that “close only counts in horseshoes.”  As adults, he continued to tell his “grown” children the following:  How to drive and park, how to pour soda in a glass, so it won’t be flat and how to make a U-turn, so we do not ruin our tires.

     Knowing that love is far greater than death, his memory will live on within his three children, Sharon Walker, Dennis (Josephine) Walker, and Priscilla (Dwayne) Holland. His six grandchildren, Rheadrea’ Walker, Antwann Walker, Marcus Walker, Destiny (Quindon) Clark, Malik Holland and Jakaylah Holland.   Ten great-grandchildren, Antwann Jr., Iyouhni, Blessing, Kason, Brookelyn, Amirrah, Canon, Menah, Ali, and Kyro. Three sisters, Queen Harris, Bertha Logan and Christine Williams; devoted nieces Kim Logan and Denise Chapman.  To include a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends who will miss him dearly. 

     Roosevelt was preceded in death by his one and only true love, his wife,  Ann Jewel (Tucker), his parents Roosevelt Walker Sr. and Lizzie Walker; and his loving Uncle Vernett Walker.

    To My Cousins Sharon, Priscilla and Dennis;

    “Uncle Roe” as we called him was a matriarch in our family that took care of all of us as his own! Soft spoken, didn’t say much, but we knew he was there for us all! The three Men of Honor, as I call them, are back together with their Queens! 112 S. Kossuth is alive and well in Heaven, and POPEYES chicken is on the table!!
    The song says “When we all get to Heaven what a day of rejoicing it will be! Keeping you in prayer family.
