James {Jim or JW} were what we knew him by; he was a great guy and a good friend who was always welcome when he unexpectedly showed up! He would do anything for his family and friends. He is missed by all. We know his family misses him terribly. Hopefully, time will heal and lessen the pain we all feel like family and friends. I especially remember his love of country music and dancing to it. {Square Dancing}l I'm sure he is listening and dancing in heaven with his family and friends who have gone before. "Rest-In-Peace" 'Jim/JW'. God Bless and Aloha! Ray and 'Tiko" Trader, 10/10/2020.

We wanted to send along our condolences to the Walker family. Our memories of Jim are few but they are great! One was when I took him flying over the ostrich farm and other sites. He could not get enough of the scenery!
He also took us in when we came to visit Jerry a few years ago. We were greeted by the farm animals and one morning we even were greeted by ferrets. We enjoyed that very much.
He told us stories of his air force career and the many friends he met along the way. You see, his brother Jerry and I met way back in '88 in the air force and he took us in like family. So, when it came time to visit we were made family with Jim as well. They both took time to come see my wife graduate school and are part of our family.
Cheryle, Jerry and family, know that we are praying for you all in this time of grief. We are always here for you all.

My favorite shot of the whole trip. We were scattered around the Bund in Shanghai, last day of our trip, and we needed a group shot. We took 2-3 before realizing Jim and Cheryle were running to get in the shot! Needless to say, the photo with them jumping down in front was the best group shot of the trip!
