Kenneth was born on March 12, 1923 to Oliver Cleveland Walker and Rebecca Mahone Walker of Mobeetie, Texas. His mother passed shortly after his birth, and he was raised primarily by his sister and her husband on a farm north of Old Mobeetie.

After his retirement, he and Vera traveled Texas and Oklahoma, following bluegrass festivals. Kenneth began playing a mandolin and played in several groups up until his 90th birthday.

Grandad will be greatly missed as a dearly loved member of our family.

Sad. Four generations ago, his and my common grandparents came to Mobeetie ( 1900) from Illinois Bend , TX . He was A friend of ours and, I guess 8th. cousins.His father ( also his brother ) lived about a half a mile from our house. He called my Great Grandpap " Uncle Bud ". They had some real good horses.

The Cash family sends our deepest heartfelt condolences for you, for the loss of Mr. Walker. Kenneth and Vera Walker were our next-door neighbors for many years in Dumas. A family could not ask for a better set of neighbors, than Kenneth and Vera. Kindness, consideration, and sincere love were what they were all about. Kenneth and I frequently talked about playing music, Blue grass, Gibson guitars and mandolins, fiddles, and Mobeetie. I was blessed to be able to listen to some of his recordings of him and his friends play, such as Gerald Porter and Mr. Billy Bob Brazell. His wife Vera used to bake wonderful pies and would occasionally bring us one. I have thought about Mr. and Mrs. Walker over the past several years, and wondered how Kenneth was doing after the passing of his sweet wife. God bless the memory of Kenneth Walker, and God bless your family. I pray that the Holy Spirit will comfort you as nothing or no one else can. Sincerely, Charlotte Cash, Janice Cash Wyatt, and our sweet deceased mother Naomi Barley Cash.
