Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I am shocked! I am so sorry for his family! He was a great Doctor and really helped me out with my panic attacks! If it weren't for him I don't know where I would be now! - Posted by: Elizabeth C.H. Golis (patient) on: Nov 13, 2019

  • Dr Walker was a great support and friend to me and my family, as I dealt with the challenge of anxiety and depression through the last 20 years. I always felt his love and respect as he counselled and taught me and my family. Through his help and the help of others, I was able to continue to work and support my family. I will forever be grateful to him, and to his wife and children who supported him in his work. Thank you. I will greatly miss my friend, but I know I will see him again, and I am glad he is relieved from the burden of pain. My compassion and love go out to his wife, children, grandchildren and siblings. May your sorrow, in time, be swallowed up in His hope and promised blessings. - Posted by: Michael Shumsky (Client and friend) on: Feb 16, 2019

  • I knew John off and on for many years, from the St. Boniface Hospital. I have suffered with anxiety disorder/agoraphobia for most of my life. I went to his support groups, lectures and knew him to be a kind and soft voice in times of despair. When I went up the sidewalk of the McEwen Bldg. I always saw him on his computer working away, qne seemed to enjoy his chosen profession. I know he loved his bike and his healthy lifestyle was an inspiration to me. I was in absolute shock about his untimely passing, and a man who seemed to embrace both physical and mental health. I give my condolences and appreciation for the many talks he gave me over the years. Rest in peace, John you were a true inspiration to a lot of us. - Posted by: Eleanor Dorst (Former patient at the McEwen Bldg.) on: Dec 22, 2018

  • My deepest condolences. The Walker family lived across the street from us on Mark Pearce (they lived on Stalker Bay) and I remember John when we were growing up, I actually went to school with Lynda because I was a year younger than John. We met again many years later at St. Boniface Hospital where we both worked at the time. John was always a kind, caring person who will be greatly missed - Posted by: Lloyd Searcy (Friend) on: Dec 22, 2018
