Kyle Craig Walker, 53, of Kingsland passed away Thursday, May 11, 2017 at Memorial Hospital in Jacksonville, Fla.
Kyle was born Dec. 18, 1963, in Jacksonville. He has been a resident of Camden County all his life and was a fireman at Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base. His career was brief due to an auto accident that left him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
Kyle had many wonderful caregivers in the 33 years after his injury. He made a difference in many lives and loved life with a passion. He will forever be in our hearts and gave so much love to his family that words cannot describe the love he received in return. His light will shine brightly in heaven for ever more. He was a member of the Kingsland First Baptist Church.
Survivors include his parents, James Clough Walker and Nadine Burch Walker of Kingsland; two brothers, Christopher Walker (Susan) of Kingsland and Tyler Walker (Karen) of Orange Park, Fla.; three nieces, Noel Thomas, Shelby Walker and Elizabeth Walker; nephew, Dylan Walker; great-niece, Elloise Thomas; and aunt, Charlotte Walker Bacon.
Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 20, at the Kingsland First Baptist Church with Pastor Brian Parker, Rev. Vernon Dillingham and Pastor Bobby Woods officiating. The family will receive friends at the church one hour prior to services.
