6700 Dr. Robert William Walker – 1943 – 2018
After a short but graceful struggle with cancer, Dr. Robert William Walker died on December 4th, 2018 beside his loving family. Bob was most proud of two things, his “girls” (his wife, Colleen Walker, his daughter, Kimothy Walker, and his granddaughter Kyra Lambert), and his 50 years of public service in the military and the RCMP.
Bob is survived by two siblings, Patricia Bannister and Gordon Walker, and their beloved spouses Robin Bannister and Janet Walker, in addition to his niece, two nephews and a grand-nephew.
Most of all he loved his wife, Colleen, his partner of 52 years.
Bob started his career with the military while still in his teens and attended RRMC, RMC and eventually graduated from Queens University with an MA and Ph.D. Bob was fiercely proud of RMC, Kingston and his university.
His military career took his family from Victoria to Kingston and on to Toronto, Winnipeg and Ottawa, where he joined the RCMP at the Canadian Police College before returning to the military as a civilian back at Kingston’s Canadian Forces Leadership Institute at RMC
Bob was one of the kindest men who ever walked the planet and will be deeply missed by those who knew him best.
