Bobby Dale Walker passed away peacefully February 15, 2022, surrounded by his family in Hood River, Oregon.

Bobby was born in Portland, Oregon., to Carl Leroy Walker and Shirley Marie (Bowman) Walker and was the oldest of 6 children. He was a member of the class of 1973 of Cascade Locks High School. He married his grade school/high school sweetheart July 3, 1974, at the Cascade Locks Community Church.

Bobby worked as a truck driver, choker, millworker, gas attendant, cabinet maker & installer. He found his career with ODOT and spent 28 years in different positions. He worked on the sign crew and then became a supervisor, he was the assistant manager of 2C, Interim Manager at 2C and then became the Maintenance Manager of Milwaukie. He volunteered to be on the city planning committee and also the budget committee. He was elected to serve on the Cascade Locks City Council as a member and in 2021 was elected as Mayor. Bobby had a deep love of family, friends and motorcycles. Bobby loved to camp in his tent (RV with heat, running water, a bed and a TV). He considered that roughing it. He also loved traveling with his wife and friends to wherever Myra wanted to go.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Myra Walker of Cascade Locks, sons Jeffrey Walker (Karlene Westerlund) of Turner, Ore, Sean Walker (Ryan Mello) of Tacoma, WA, daughter Heather (Henry) Idica of Long Beach, WA.
