Kevin Walker

11/16/2017


Kevin A. Walker, age 49, of Wayne, passed away peacefully on Thursday, November 16, 2017.

Kevin was born in the Manhattan section of New York City. Soon after his family moved to Wanaque, NJ where he spent his formative years. After graduating from DePaul High School with the Class of 1986, Kevin attended Misericordia University in Dallas, PA where he majored in history. After earning his bachelor’s degree in 1990, he began full time work as an inside sales representative with the Ricoh Corporation. For the next twenty years he enjoyed much success and satisfaction and enjoyed the camaraderie of his customers and associates. Most recently, he joined the sales team at PTS Data Center Solutions in Oakland, NJ.

In his spare time, Kevin could often be found on the green at the Preakness Valley Golf Course in Wayne and the Sunset Valley Golf Course in Pompton Plains playing eighteen holes of golf with his buddies. He was a big fan of America’s favorite pastimes of baseball and football choosing to cast his loyalties first and foremost to the New York Mets and New York Giants. His love of sports was surely instilled in him as a young boy playing baseball, football, hockey, and racing wood go-carts with his brother and his neighborhood friends. Kevin also enjoyed music – especially classic rock.

While leisure-time amusements were fine, nothing was more important to Kevin than being with his family. He loved gathering during the holidays with his numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins, visiting his brother and sister, and most recently, he loved hanging out with his little nephew Ryan.

Kevin will always be remembered for being one who always put the needs of others above his own needs. He will be dearly missed.

Kevin is survived by his dear brother Brian and wife Kimberly Walker of Wanaque, his dear sister Kerith Ann Walker of Glassboro, his nephew Ryan Walker, and numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins. He was predeceased by his loving parents Arthur and Joan Walker.

Friends may visit with the family at the Vander May Wayne Colonial Funeral Home, 567 Ratzer Road, Wayne, on Sunday, November 19, 2017 from 2-6 PM.

Funeral Services will be held on Monday, November 20, 2017 at 9:00 AM from the funeral home, then to St. Mary’s R.C. Church, 17 Pompton Ave., Pompton Lakes where at 10:00 AM a Funeral Mass will be offered. Interment will follow at Christ the King Cemetery, Franklin Lakes.
