Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep, Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark;
For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place, The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face, When I have crost the bar.
George Wesley Walker, Jr. was born in Northampton County (Pendleton), North Carolina on Tuesday, January 1, 1957 to the late George Wesley Walker, Sr. and Annie Marie Hill Walker Johnson.
George was educated in the Northampton County Public Schools, attending Meherrin Willis Hare, Conway Middle School and ultimately graduating from Northampton County High School - East. Early in life, George became gainfully employed with Severn Peanut Company, where he worked for over 50 years, until his health declined. He found great pleasure in working in his vegetable garden, fishing and dancing. George was always the life of the party. He never met a stranger and would do anything he could to help his family, friends and loved one. During his youth, he also played baseball with the Pendleton Aces.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10: 13) In the Spring of 2022, George accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.
Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be, A resting place along the road, to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay… Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know. For some the journey is quicker, For some the journey’s slow. And when the journey finally ends, We’ll claim a great reward, And find an everlasting peace, Together with the Lord. On Friday, June 30, 2023, while in the serenity of his home, surrounded by his loving family, George peacefully transitioned from earthly life, unto eternal rest.
George leaves not to mourn his passing, but to reflect upon and cherish many fond memories: two sisters, Ola Midgett (Steve) of Capitol Heights, Maryland and Sandra Johnson of the home, whom he often referred to as a mother-figure; one brother, Ricky Walker of Como, North Carolina; five aunts, Mary Johnson and Dorothy Johnson both of Paterson, New Jersey, Christine Fields (David) of Summerville, South Carolina, Rosa Johnson of Jackson, North Carolina and Ellen Bethea of Pendleton, North Carolina; one uncle, Roosevelt Grant of Boykins, Virginia; three nieces, Kimberly Sledge, Jessica Walker and Shanta Walker; five nephews, Craig Walker (Brandy), Greg Johnson, Tony Sledge, LayShawn Johnson and Brian Midgett; a host of great-nieces, great-nephews, relatives and friends.
