Bobby, Rhea & Family, We were all quite saddened to read of your Dad's passing. He was a real gentleman who I always enjoyed talking with whenever I saw him. He was one of the terrific men that made up the class company known as Hall-Hodges. Please know that you all are in our prayers. Remember the good times with your Mom and Dad. Your friends, Steve, Vicki, Lauren, and Bret Ervin

I was very sorry to read of your father's death. His association with my family began in 1956 when my soon-to-be husband, Bill Bumbalough, began working at Hall-Hodges as an apprentice draftsman at age 19. A wonderful 42-year- relationship followed until Bill's death in 1998. Mr. Walker attended his funeral and precipitated a generous memorial gift to our church. Both out children, Paul & Laura, had summer jobs at H-H, Paul earning monies that supplemented his tuition to Duke University where he's been a staff member for 27 years. Mr. Walker was a favorite of Bill, Paul & Laura, a consumate Southern gentleman who touched our lives in countless ways. My sincere sympathies on the loss of your loved one.

Bobby, Rhea and family, So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. Your Mom and Dad were two special people in our lives. Many good times on the OBX, Sea Ranch and the all important HOKIE games in Blacksburg. He was definitely the consumate HOKIE!! Your Mom and Dad were such a special couple...I'm sure your Dad is rejoicing with their "reunion" having been so lost wen your Mom died. We loved them both and they'll always be remembered with love and a smile.
