Kim Louis Walker, 65, of Kingman passed away Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, at his home. Kim was born May 3, 1947, in Kingman, the son of John "Jack" and Ginette Walker. He was the oldest of three siblings. On June 21, 1965, he married Carol Ann Hunter, who survives. Kim graduated from Mohave Union High School in 1965.
He worked for Duval Mine for 17 years and worked for an additional 21 years for Southern California Edison Power Plant. He was a machinist by trade and loved working with his hands and any type of tool. He worked many trades over the years including fencing, and cabinetry, even made some wonderful pieces of furniture. He received his CDL and worked any odd jobs for his sons, driving and repairing heavy equipment and machinery.
Most importantly, his enduring love for his family and for his grandchildren will never be replaced. He attended each and every event that he could and would do anything for all of his girls. He was the best "PaPa" any child could ask for!
He is survived by his mother Ginette Walker of Kingman; son, Ken Walker and Beth Lanatti of Kingman; son and daughter-in-law, Keith and Mindy Walker of Kingman; grandchildren, Devan, Camryn and Ryleigh Walker of Gilbert, Ariz.; and grandchildren, Allison, Morgan and Maddison Walker of Kingman.
