Andrew Stephen Walker

Andrew Stephen Walker, 83, of Brentwood, passed away peacefully on Aug. 3, 2022. 

He was born in Klamath Falls, Oregon to the late Winston and Catherine Walker. Andrew was a veteran of the U.S. Army, serving during the Cold War. Later, he went to Los Angeles State University and completed the Advanced Management Program at UCLA and the Advanced Management Program at Columbia University Graduate School of Business. 

Andrew began his distinguished career with the United States Postal Service as a substitute clerk in Whittier, California in 1959. He advanced through many management positions. From director of customer services in the Southern California District, he was promoted to positions in Chicago, Memphis and later appointed to assistant postmaster general of the Delivery Services Department in Washington, D.C. His last position was in Nashville, which he loved, as district manager of the Tennessee District, overseeing the state of Tennessee. He retired in 2001 after a 42-year career.

Andrew was a man of intellect and humor, quick-witted, hardworking and anyone who knew him would describe him as kind and gentle.

Walker Jr. of Houston; daughter, Catherine Walker Parkinson, and son-in-law, Mark, of Long Valley, New Jersey; brother, Michael Walker, of Durham, North Carolina; grandson, Winston Walker; and many other loving family members.
