RICHARD LEE WALKER, 77, COLUMBIA

 

Richard Lee Walker, 77, of Columbia, KY passed away on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 in Louisville, KY.  He was surrounded by his wife and children at the time of his death.
 
Richard Lee and his high school sweetheart Marsha were married in August of 1963.  He attended Lindsey Wilson College before earning a bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University in 1966. While he and Marsha attended Western, he sold Electrolux vacuum cleaners and farmed on weekends to support his family, which by late 1966 included two children. 
 
After college Richard would continue dairy farming while working as a field representative for Kyana Milk Producers. In 1973, he was named Outstanding Young Dairyman by Dairyman, Inc.   He later served on DI’s Board of Directors. Governors Wendell Ford and Julian Carroll both appointed Richard to the Governor’s Agriculture Council.
 
Richard earned his real estate sales associate license in 1973. That step would lead him to a 47-year career in real estate sales, brokerage and development.  He was owner and principal broker of Walker Realty until his death. 
 
His love of Adair County and a desire to make it the best possible place to live spurred Richard to serve through public office. He was elected to the office of County Judge Executive in 1985 and was re-elected in 1989. The Adult Education GED program developed during his first term enrolled over 300 students in its first year. Richard also served as chairman of the Lake Cumberland Area Development District and the Lake Cumberland Health Department during his time in office.
 
Richard served two terms on the Board of Trustees of Lindsey Wilson College. He saw Lindsey Wilson as a tremendous asset to the area and was an enthusiastic supporter of the school and its mission. In 2004, Richard was presented the Distinguished Service Award by the Lindsey Wilson College National Alumni Association.  
 
He was preceded in death by his parents, William Richard, Jr. and Mary Evelyn Barnes Walker.
 
SURVIVORS:
Wife of 57 years: Marsha Walker
1 daughter: Leigh Ann (Mike) Parkinson of Nashville, TN
1 son: Dicky (Amy) Walker of Columbia
