Rev. Philip Walker


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our brother, the Rev. Philip Walker died on Sunday, January 15, 2017. Philip was as a gentle spirit who thrived in his work outside of the local church. He was loved by the community and Davis UMC who named a room in his honor.

Philip served the Davis church, the Alcohol Drug Abuse Program, and the Yolo County Health Services Agency before retiring in 1993.

He is survived by his wife, Carol Walker, of Woodland, CA, and by six children: Kara Walker Clarkson of Woodland, CA, Wendy Davis of Winters, CA, Tami Brunson of Woodland, CA, Randy Walker of Moscow, Idaho, Bob Walker of Elk Grove, CA, and Sabrina Chudamelka of Galt, CA; by 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Condolences may be sent to Carol Walker at 900 Second Street, Woodland, CA 95695.

A funeral will be held on January 28, 2017 at 2pm at the Woodland United Methodist Church, 620 North Street, Woodland, CA  95695. Rev. Dr. Warren Walker, Philip’s brother, will be presiding.

Memorial gifts may be sent in Philip’s name to St. John’s Retirement Village, 135 Woodland Avenue, Woodland, CA  95695.

Let us continue to give God thanks for Philip’s life and witness and hold the Walker family close in prayer.  In our living and in our dying, we belong to God! (Romans 14:8)
