AUGUSTA GAZETTE, 25 May 1911
Obituary of ERNEST WALKER
Ernest Walker Dies
In Wichita Hospital

The serious illness of Ernest Walker came as a surprise to most of the people yesterday morning when they heard he had been taken to the Wichita hospital during the night and the announcement of his death in the hospital Wednesday afternoon was a shock to the friends as well as the family.

Ernest Walker was born in Augusta, August 21, 1883. He was reared and educated in Augusta. On November 28, 1906, he was married to Miss Maude McLlvain. For several years he has been a partner of his father's on the firm name of H.B. Walker & Son and was considered an excellent business man.


He was a member of the Modern Woodmen of America, the K. P's and Royal Neighbors. He was clerk of the Wooman a position he held for four years and was prompt and efficient in doing the work of the office it was said of him that he protected many a member who failed to meet his payments on time.

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Maude Walker, his father, H.B.Walker, half brother, Charlie Walker and a sister, Mrs. Fred Spencer, of Bakersfield, Cal. The remains arrived this afternoon and were met by a large concourse of brothers of his Order and friends who conveyed them to his home on State street. The casket was opened and to all appearances his features were as though he was peacefully sleeping and the least disturbance would be his awakening, they being so natural. The funeral will probably be held Sunday, his sister Bertha having left Bakersfield last night and should arrive by Saturday evening. Announcement will be made later.
