Obituary

George Walker was born on January 11, 1939, in Leavenworth, Kansas, the son of Eddie and Vesta (Wilson) Walker. His family moved to New York City when George was a young boy, where he graduated from high school.

George began full-time employment at Macy's Herald Square in 1970 and retired in 1998. He also served in various leadership roles for Local 1-S of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union. He was a "dedicated, strong and respected Union Leader." If an employee had a problem with management or was treated unfairly, they were told "go see Big George!'

In 1978, he met and married Gladys Marie Johnson. They met at Macy's Herald Square, where it was often remarked "I wonder what the romance is about between George Walker and Gladys Johnson on the 7th floor." George was an avid sports fan and enjoyed traveling with Gladys.

Preceded in death are his parents, and one of two brothers. George is survived by his beloved wife of fort-one years, Gladys Marie Walker; honorary daughter, Kim Haines (Aaron); goddaughter, Yvonne Oyola; brother-in -law, William (Butch) Johnson; and a loving extended family.
