Obituary of Timothy Walker
All people die, but not all people live. Tim lived!
On March 24, 1985, in Pequannock NJ, Randy and Marianne Walker welcomed their youngest child, Timothy Alexander Walker into the world. As Tim grew up in Lincoln Park, he transformed from a self described “weird, but friendly” kid, into a remarkably talented athlete, as well as a naturally gifted scholar. He played football and rugby at Columbia University, the latter of which took him on some of the most memorable trips of his life. Not long after graduation, Tim worked at the Buckley School before securing a position at Chapel Hill Academy. In the very early days of this job, Tim found that not only was he a consummate educator, it was a profession that lit a fire in his soul. It was this experience that led him to pursue and complete both a teaching degree and principal’s certificate at Montclair State University. It was also this job that led him to the love of his life, his wife Cory. He married her on the second happiest day of his life, and soon followed the happiest day, the birth of Tim and Cory’s son, Cameron John Walker. Tim spent the rest of his life in love with his little family. Tim passed peacefully at home in Sparta NJ, being comforted by his family.
Remaining Earthside to invigorate Tim’s legacy are his wife Cory Jackowski, as well as his pride and joy, his son Cameron; his parents Randy and Marianne Walker; his sisters Jill De Francesco (Mike) and Lisa Wolff-Walker (Dan) along with his gaggle of nieces, each of whom he adored; his loyal and treasured pup Snickers; a legion of students; dozens of comrades and colleagues, as well as countless friends.
And if you are one of the people reading this who is sad, remember what Winnie the Pooh said, "How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." Tim would like that.
The family will receive friends at Kei-Lozito Funeral Home, 125 Main Street, Lincoln Park, NJ on Saturday, January 20, 2024 from 2-5 PM and Sunday January 21, 2024 from 3-6 PM with a repast to follow at American Legion Post No. 279 in Lincoln Park. NJ at 6 PM.
