Gene Simeon “Primo” Walker, Jr., 66, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Monday, January 29, 2024. 


Gene was a proud graduate of TCU Ranch Management, where he honed his passion for the cattle industry. Gene's life revolved around his love for cattle trading. Known throughout the industry for his integrity and commitment, he served as a Director of the TSCRA, where he dedicated his time and expertise to the betterment of ranching and cattle trading practices. Gene's word was his bond, earning him the respect and trust of his colleagues and friends.


Beyond his professional achievements, Gene was a devout follower of Jesus Christ, finding solace and strength in his faith. He cherished the teachings of the Bible, and John 14:6 held particular significance in his life.


However, Gene's greatest joy came from his family. His wife, Jean Carllyn Walker, was his partner in life, providing love and support throughout their journey together. Gene found immense happiness in the presence of his children and grandchildren, who were the light of his life. The time spent with his family brought him great delight, providing a sense of warmth and love that Gene cherished deeply.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Gene Simeon and Mary Katherine Walker; his mother-in-law, Jean Murray De St Germain; his brother James Patrick “Rick” Walker, Sr. 


Left to cherish his memory is his beloved wife Carllyn Walker; his children, Jeffory Carl Walker, Cathy Elizabeth (Kevin) Walker Reed, Kandy Elaine Walker, and Marygene Walker; his grandchildren, William, Rheya, Michael, Memphis, Wyatt, Rayce, Virgil, Genie, and Gene, III.; his siblings Elizabeth Walker, and Kathleen “Kandy” Walker; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended relatives, and friends.
