William H. WALKER, SR.

William H. WALKER, SR., a participant in the growth of the US aviation and aerospace industry from the introduction of the "jet age" to the space program, passed away due to natural causes on February 2, 2008. He was born to Samuel and Valeria WALKER in Corolla, North Carolina on June 22, 1927, and he grew up within a few miles of Kitty Hawk, the birthplace of aviation. Due to his father's profession as a wildlife refuge manager, he gained a love of airplanes and aviation by participating in aerial wildlife surveys during the late 1930s. This ultimately led to his long career in the aerospace industry. Bill graduated from Manteo High School, in Manteo North Carolina in May 1944. He was Class President, and until very recently, enjoyed frequent reunions with his classmates. After his high school graduation in the fall of 1944, Bill enrolled in the US Army Air Corp's College Training Detachment at Clemson A&M College. In 1946 he served in Europe as an airplane crew chief for B-17 bombers, and was honorably discharged in 1947. After attending the University of North Carolina for a brief time, Bill eventually found his way to Seattle in late 1948. Following short employment as a flight line mechanic for United Airlines, he took a job with the Boeing Airplane Company. He worked as a mechanic on the flight line, but took flying instruction in his off hours at Lake Union, ultimately gaining his Pilot's License in 1949. Shortly thereafter, Bill joined his good friend, Mr. Peter BOWERS, for a circumnavigation of the continental US in a small floatplane. In February of 1949 Bill met his lifelong sweetheart, Jean WILSON, at the Trianon Ballroom in Seattle. They fell in love and were married in August of that same year, a romance that lasted 58 years, until his death. Jean and Bill had two sons, William "Bill" Jr. and Stephen "Steve". Bill contributed many mechanical aviation designs that are still in use today on the KC-135, Boeing 727, and Boeing 737. After contributing to the design of the Supersonic Transport (SST), he then worked on proposals for the B-1 Bomber. During the late 1960s, he was part of a "tiger team" that worked on specific design issues of the prototype Boeing 747. He worked on teams that Boeing provided for NASA, for projects that included the Space Shuttle and Skylab. From the late 1970's until his retirement in December of 1992, he worked on several classified projects. Bill worked on many products and projects that have since become synonymous with Boeing. Until his passing, he and his career-long friends and colleagues continued to meet for weekly lunches to discuss both past and present projects and technology. In addition to his love of aviation, Bill enjoyed power boating and boat racing. He campaigned a 7-liter inboard hydroplane from 1960 until 1973. His boat, "Sunday Pants", was the last example of a Ted Jones designed racing hull. Among Bill's achievements in hydroplane racing was his qualification for inclusion in the Gulf Oil Hundred-Mile-Per-Hour Club, a notable accomplishment at that time. He was a member of the American Powerboat Association, and served two terms as Commodore of the Seattle Inboard Racing Association. Family, friends and colleagues will remember Bill for his many great qualities; someone who enjoyed his life, who loved to tell a story, and who was quick to smile, laugh and make friends. Bill is survived by his beloved wife, Jean; his sister, Doris STAUFFER, Bethesda, MD; his brother, Samuel, Virginia Beach, VA; his sons, Bill, Jr., Redwood City, CA, and Steve, Shoreline, WA; his daughter-in-law, Jennifer CARROLL, Shoreline, WA; his granddaughters, Leila WALKER, New York, NY, Alisa WALKER, Boston, MA; and his grandson, Joshua, Redwood City, CA. The family has scheduled a Celebration of his Life at 3:00 p.m. on February 29, 2008, at the Bellevue Club, 11200 Southeast 6th Street, Bellevue, WA. Arrangements entrusted to Sunset Hills Funeral Home, Bellevue, WA.  (Seattle Post-Intelligencer - February 10, 2008)

I remember you and Daddy rubbing your tummy and sharing all the dreams of our future together, you writing in your belly book, and you and Daddy praying for me at night. I want you to know my Father God was listening and everything turned out just the way it was supposed to be.  I hope you will understand I was too sick to stay. I wanted you to watch me run and play, go to school, grow up, get married, you know all those things Mommies and Daddies want to see, but I was just too weak. Thank you for keeping me warm and safe, you and Daddy giving me little pats. I was watching you and I will keep watching for you and Daddy because it is promised we will all be together again.  I am leaving behind my big sister, Lauren, my Aunt Megan, Uncle Dustin, Uncle Ashley, Aunt Ashley, my little cousin Miles BEACHAM, Grammy and Granddaddy (Kevin & Cindy SPAIN), Grandma and Grandpa WESSEL, (Patricia & Richard WESSEL), Great Grandmama & Great Granddaddy, (Miles & Nellie SPAIN) and PaPa, My other Great Granddaddy, (Ralph LANE).

I love you each and every one.  In lieu of flowers I would like everyone to look around and find someone in need, no matter how small or grand. It could be just holding someone’s hand. Then find the time, the unconditional love, and compassion Nancy MEEHAN gave to my Mommy, Daddy, Granddaddy and Grammy……Pass it on….It will last a lifetime.  Mommy, Daddy, don’t cry because I am gone…Please smile because I lived. Tears will only get in the way when you look to the stars and you may miss me smiling back.  A graveside service will be Saturday, January 5, 2008 at 11:00 AM at the Poyner Family Cemetery in Poplar Branch with the Pastor Jeff UNDERWOOD officiating.

She was a pioneer as the first nurse at NORSHIPCO shipyard, and worked there for many years.  Noc & Dot loved the beach and enjoyed spending time in their cottage on the Outer Banks of North Carolina many years ago.  Dot was meticulous, incredibly organized, and a creature of habit.  She refused to take credit when credit was due, pooh-poohed any attention thrown her way, and did not feel even an obituary was necessary, yet few were more deserving. While always forthright and upfront, but honest, those who knew her well would surely attest that she was a "real hoot"! Her dry sense of humor and hilarious anecdotes would leave you in stitches.  Dot leaves behind to cherish her memory her step-daughters, Eileen WYNNE (Ken), and Grace WEST (Bill); brothers and sisters in-law, Rev. Dan JONES and Gerry, Leon "Baney" WHITE and Rosa; several grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.  She will be greatly missed by her nephew, Jimmy REECE and wife Laura, who were her caretakers in her final years.

He is a huge asset to Chesapeake Regional Health Center.  A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, February 13, 2012 at the Francis Gay Chapel of Oman Funeral Home & Crematory, 1146 Rodgers Street, Chesapeake, with Rev.
