WALKER, Kevin James -
April 30, 1960 - May 21, 2023
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband and father, Kevin, on Sunday May 21, 2023 at Lakeridge Health Oshawa, after a brave fight and just 21 days after his 63rd birthday.
Much loved husband and best friend of Laurie (Yuill), cherished father of Meghan Megaw (Shawn), Kyle and Adam.
Proud grandpa of his cherished grandchildren Connor and Natalie Megaw.
Many nieces and nephews will always remember Uncle Kevin with the sense of humour and liked to tease.
Predeceased by his father Vin (2017) and survived by his mother Jean and sister Karen (Andre). Kevin worked as an electrician for over 40 years and during that time helped many young apprentices get a foothold in the trade.
He encouraged his kids to pursue sports and sometimes helped coach their teams. Kevin was elected to the Executive for the Ontario Amateur Softball Association and eventually followed in his father’s footsteps by serving as president.
He was an amazing man with a big heart and he will be dearly missed.
The family would like to thank the many wonderful nurses and doctors at Scarborough Centenary Cardiac Unit and ICU, Toronto General CICU, Lakeridge Health Oshawa ICU and 7C for their excellent care and compassion.
There will be a celebration of life on June 24 from 1-4 at Bathe Park, 298 Eulalie Ave., Oshawa - we invite you to wear your favourite sports or casual attire - eulogy/stories starting at 2:00.
If desired, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Humane Society would be appreciated.
‘Until we meet again’.
