OBITUARY: Walter Donald Walker


Mr. Walter Donald Walker was welcomed into the arms of Jesus in the early morning hours of Tuesday, June 14, 2022.

Donnie was born August 27, 1954 and grew up in Gladeville, TN, and graduated from Mt. Juliet High School. He was a dedicated employee of Thompson Machinery for over 30 years before entering retirement. He was a member of New Heart Christian Church for 15 years and served on the hospitality team.

Donnie was an amazing father to Ladonne and Deanne. He was the best granddaddy D (aka Grand Pappy) to Rozlin, Gabi, and Santi and was so excited to meet baby Reed in September.

May we all hold our loved ones close, as we mourn the loss of this wonderful man.
