Billy J. Walker, age 89, former Altus businessman, passed away on October 7, 2014, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Mr. Walker was born on February 27, 1925, in Wichita County, Texas to Fred and Lorena (nee Franks) Walker. Billy, who was adopted, lived in Flag, Texas until his senior year, 1943, when the family moved to Altus to care for his grandmother Zeralda Franks. After graduating from Altus High in 1943, Billy joined the United States Navy. In 1946, he married Wanda D. nee Swann and they later moved to Oklahoma City so Billy could commute to Stillwater for a year. Moving back to Altus to lay carpet, he eventually established Walker Carpets with Alvin Hurst. Billy was very active in the community, a longtime member of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, a Mason and member of the Thomas Street Church of Christ. After his retirement, Billy was an avid fisherman and RVer who traveled for over twenty-five years.

Preceded in death by his parents and son, Michael Ney Walker, he is survived by his wife, Wanda D. Walker of Norman, Oklahoma; two daughters, Debbie Kay Herring and husband Jim of Norman, Oklahoma and Michelle McGuire and husband Matt of Colorado Springs, Colorado; five grandchildren, Miranda McGuire and Kaitlin McGuire of Colorado Springs, Colorado and Dawn Walker of Albuquerque, New Mexico and Heather Walker and Sergio Solario of Norman; three great grandchildren, Zain Walker, Carisa Solorio and Adriana Solorio along with many other relatives and friends.
