Robert “Bob” Craig Walker left this world on October 5, 2021. Bob was born April 22, 1940 in Driggs Idaho to Dorothy Read Walker and Gean C. Walker. He spent his early childhood years attending elementary school in Driggs, completing high school in Idaho Falls where his parents and two sisters, Nancy and Ann relocated.
Bob started college at Utah State University in Logan, Utah, followed by adventures of living in Hawaii, Lake Tahoe and Southern California, where he met Nancy Kath. Bob and Nancy were married in 1968 in Jackson, Wyoming, and settled in Pocatello where Bob finished school at Idaho State University, with a BS in Economics. Bob was the President of Centre Glass and Paint in downtown Pocatello, and forged many friendships and business relationships over the years. Bob and Nancy raised two daughters, Angela, and Lisa in Pocatello, and eventually moved to Mesa, Arizona. They moved to Boise in 1997, and began to split their time between Phoenix, and Pocatello after retirement.
