George Albert Walker was born on August 19, 1945 to George and Laura Ann Walker in Barbour County, Alabama.
Albert worked over 30 years at Opp Micolas Cotton Mills while also working in the logging industry. After the mill closed, he studied and went back to school to get his CDL license. He was proud of this accomplishment because he only completed 9th grade while in school. He drove trucks for several years before retiring.
Albert transitioned to the next journey of life on Sunday, May 14, 2023. At an early age he joined New Zion Baptist Church where he served until his death.
Albert’s family and friends affectionately called him “Bubba” and knew him to be a hard worker who took care of his family, a great friend and always full of life. “Bubba” was always willing to lend a helping hand. In his earlier years, he was the person who people called when they needed a whole hog cooked. He took pride in staying up all night turning the hog over an open pit and adding his own special seasonings. In his own words, “It’s hard to beat ole’ Bubba cooking a whole hog.” We all had to agree, he was the best at it.
He was a Masonic Brother and an active member of The Bros Club.
He was preceded in death by his mother and father, George and Laura Ann Walker, his sister, Anna Mae Abbott, his brother, Deacon Willie James Walker, his in-laws, Fred and Eva Mae Flowers, his grandson Nicholas, and a host of brothers and sisters in law.
He is survived by the love of his life and devoted wife of 57 years Annie Walker, his children Bobby Jordan (Gayle), Elba, Al, Chequita Walker, Elba, Al, Jennifer Walker, Atlanta, GA, Yolanda Coleman (Steven), Troy, Al, Ron Ellis (Takisha), York South Carolina; Rozalyn Miller (Patrick), Enterprise, Al.

His Uncle Sammy Coleman, Aunt Vernella Carmicheal, and a special niece Rita Smith and great nephew, Aaron Smith, and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.
