Keith Maurice Walker 1915 ~ 2007 Our beloved father and husband, Keith Maurice Walker, passed away peacefully February 15, 2007 at his home of natural causes. He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah June 15, 1915 to William F. and Alicia May Walker. He attended South High School, and later graduated from the University of Utah with a Master's Degree. He nurtured a lifelong interest in learning and sought always to improve his mind and talents. He enjoyed writing articles and short stories for Latter-day Saint publications. He served in San Francisco with the United States Navy during World War II. He retired in 1974 from the District Office of the United States Postal Service where he served for 45 years. His eternal marriage to June Brooks November 10, 1938 was the most precious thing in his life. Together they created a home full of love, reared and nurtured five children, and served their community and friends. He is survived by his wife, June; daughters, Cherrill (Charity) Welker (Sandy), Joy Moffett Robbins (Phoenix, AZ), and Shauna Armstrong (Park City); sons, Brooks K. Walker (Eden) and Warren V. Walker (Riverton); sons and daughters-in-law, H. Delbert Welker, Jim Robbins, Bradley (Brock) Armstrong, Karen Walker, and Sherrie Walker; 19 beloved grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren. Keith was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and sought all his life to emulate the Savior in all that he did. He instilled a love of gospel service in his family. He served in several bishoprics, served as High Priest Group Leader, stake Sunday School superintendent, stake missionary presidency, and with June at his side, served a genealogy mission and as a guide on Temple Square. A man uncompromising in integrity, he sought always to stand in holy places. His life was pure in love and devotion. We were the recipients of his unfailing love and nurturing. Truly we were born of goodly parents. May you dwell in peace, Dad, until we meet again at the Savior's feet.
