Obituary

Loyd Walker, age 82 of Sparta was promoted to his heavenly home on March 16, 2021 at his residence. His battle with medical issues in recent years was a reflection of his courage and grace as he faced life's challenges with a continual smile and sense of humor. He was a member of the Steven's Street Baptist Church in Cookeville for years.

Loyd was born May 26, 1938 in Smithville, TN. He spent 30+ years working for Frito Lay and in that capacity served many local stores in Sparta and surrounding counties. In his free time, you could find Loyd working in his yard or riding his John Deere mower. He has even been lovingly accused of washing and polishing the rocks in his yard.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Haston and Lena Walker and son, Jerry Walker.

Loyd is survived by:

Wife- Linda Walker of Sparta, TN

Daughter- Sherry Walker of Yuma, AZ

Granddaughter- Brittany Walker Howell (David) of White House, TN

Great-Granddaughters- Maddux and Raegan Howell of White House, TN

Daughter-in-Law- Carlena Walker of Cookeville, TN

Nephew- Corey Austin of Cookeville, TN as well as many other special nieces and nephews

Special Family Friend- Mary Bailey of Sparta, TN

Funeral Services will be held at 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at Oak Lawn Funeral Home with Doug Benningfield officiating. Burial will follow in Oak Lawn Memorial Cemetery. The family will welcome friends on Saturday from 10:00 A.M. until time of the service at the funeral home.
