Obituary for Gerald Lee Walker

Gerald Lee Walker, age 74, formerly of Troy, Michigan passed peacefully into eternity surrounded by his family and friends in his home at Rockwood, Tennessee, on May 18, 2018. He was born September 22, 1943 in Sandusky, Michigan to the late Clare and Halcyon Walker.

After attaining his B.S. degree in electrical engineering from University of Michigan, he started his career of 36 years with DTE Energy (formerly Detroit Edison). During those years, he received his M.B.A. from Michigan State University. After retiring, he started a small electrical contracting business in Maryville, TN, and enjoyed working for his many customers.

In 1966, he married Nancy Bosse, and they enjoyed sharing their lives with each other for 52 years. After 37 years together in Michigan, during which time they were blessed with two sons and a daughter, they retired to Tennessee in 2003.

Gerald leaves many special memories to his wife, Nancy; their three children: Geoffrey (Karen) Walker, of Waterford, Michigan; Kevin (Christine) Walker of Pleasant View, Tennessee; and Kara (Derek) Sims of Hopkinsville, Kentucky; along with six grandchildren. Additionally, Gerald is survived by three sisters: Marguerite (Jesse) Hoots, Janet Webb, and Ellen Kirt. He was preceded in death by one sister, Elaine Virgo.


The family will receive friends from 4 to 6:45 p.m. Monday, May 21, 2018, with funeral services to follow at 7 P.M. at the Click Funeral Home Farragut Chapel with Jerome Frandle and Loren Spellman officiating.
