Richard David Walker

June 28, 1963 — March 25, 2024

Battle Creek

Richard David Walker, 59, passed away March 25, 2024 at Rose Arbor Hospice Residence after having a stroke.  Rich was born in Rochester, NY to William Walker and Beverly Whittenburg Walker.  He came to S.W. Michigan as a young man.  

Rich was an avid motorcyclist and had a great love of riding with his brothers and having fun with his friends, whom he loved as much as the motorcycles he built.  He was known for his generous and kind heart and his spirit of fun.  “Dennis the Menace” will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  

Rich is survived by his daughter, Beth; his son, Devin; two half-brothers and many other family members.  Rich was preceded in death by his parents, a daughter, Tabitha and two brothers, Tom and James.  

A celebration of Rich’s life will be held at a later date at Skeets Gehrman Park, to be announced on Facebook.   Arrangements by the Farley Estes Dowdle Funeral Home & Cremation Care.  Personal messages for the family may be placed at
