Raymond Gerrit "Gerry" Walker Obituary

Raymond Gerrit “Gerry” Walker, 80, Kokomo, passed away the morning of Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at his home.  Gerry was born July 28, 1943, in Kokomo, the son of Dr. Raymond & Ada (Eager) Walker.  On August 14, 1965, in Kokomo, he married the love of his life, Patricia “Patty” Bagwell and she survives.

Gerry was a 1962 graduate of Kokomo High School and attended Ball State University.  He retired from Delphi Corporation in 2002 after 44 years of service to Delphi and Delco Electronics.  He was a dedicated father of 3 boys, and he never missed their sporting events.
