Joey was born Friday, May 8, 1959 in Fort Worth, Texas to Kenneth and Laverne Walker. He attended Western Hills High School. Joey was a very hard working man. He worked as an irrigation foreman for Burks Irrigation and led an active life.
He loved fishing with his Uncle Don and cousin, Estes, golfing with his Brother, Keith Walker and Boss, Alan Burks, and playing bingo with friends.
Most of all he loved spending time with his grandkids. “Paw Paw” would always attend their sporting events and school functions.
