Reverend Bobby G. “Bob” Walker

1946 – 2023

Rev. Bob Gene Walker, Age 76, of Edmond, Oklahoma departed from this life on June 13th, 2023, at his home in the company of his beautiful and caring wife Billie L. Walker. Bob was born on July 2nd, 1946, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the oldest of three children to Geneva and Otis Walker. He graduated from John Marshall High School in 1964 and married his high school sweetheart Sue Ann Walker on December 7th, 1963. Throughout their marriage they had two children, Mark Wayne, 54, and Cindy Zonelle, 57.

Bob worked several jobs to support his family before he answered the call to be a minister. Bob was a minister for the Oklahoma Assemblies of God for 49 years. He first became a pastor in Guthrie, OK where he diligently served for over 20 years. He later became a pastor at Victory Inner-City Church where he ministered for several years. He finally moved to Edmond, OK in 2000 where he joined the Spring Creek Assembly of God staff as the Pastoral Care Pastor, where he has been for the last 23 years. After 49 years of marriage in 2012 Sue lost her battle to illness, however, Bob continued to follow the passions of his heart, ministry and business. Bob was a phenomenal businessman and had a way with numbers. He had a knack for seeing the good in things including potential rental properties. In 2013 he married the second love of his life, Billie, they just celebrated their 10th anniversary on June 1st. One thing Bob loved was being a “Papa”, he was so, so blessed by his grandchildren.

 Bob was a pillar of this community for the last 40 years. He was the embodiment of what it meant to be the hands and feet of Christ. He took time to care for people each day and never made you feel unimportant, Bob was one of a kind.

Bob will lovingly be remembered by his wife, Billie Walker, and his children Mark Walker and Cindy Walker. Bob will also be fondly remembered by his seven grandchildren, Josh (28), Nathan (24), Jon (21), Gracie (21), Ridge (16), Jett (16), Fallon (15), and his sister Sandra Estes. Bob was preceded in death by his late first wife Sue Walker, his brother Jim Walker, and his parents Geneva and Otis Walker.

The celebration of Bob Walker’s extraordinary life will be held June 17th, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. at Spring Creek Assembly in Edmond, OK. Please join us in rejoicing his reunion with Christ. The public viewing will be at Matthew’s Funeral Home from 1:00-8:00 p.m. with family present from 2:00-4:00 p.m. To watch the live stream of the service please use the following link

  1. Dearest Pastor Papa, I really am all alone now. I’ll be seeing you. I love you.

    Bob was the embodiment of compassion. Too many times to count, he stood beside the hospital bed of those who needed the love of Christ in times of crisis. He was there for our family in some of the darkest hours — even to the point of reaching out beyond Oklahoma to touch our chaotic lives while in both Colorado and Texas. His love was real, practical, and godly. Memories of him are priceless. Imagining life without him in it is sad. We send our love to Billie, Mark, Cindy, and all of the grandchildren.

    Pastor Bob was a ray of sunshine everytime he came into my office. He always had a smile. He was so very humble. I had the pleasure to speak with him one last time the day the Lord called him home. His last words to me and my staff at the Logan County Treasurer’s office was, “we are never promised tomorrow “. I never dreamed it would be the last time we got see Bob. I got witness one of his last acts of kindness, he was helping people pay their taxes so they didn’t lose their homes and property. He will be dearly missed. Mrs. Billie we are so sorry for your loss. Love, Sherri Longnecker and the staff of the Logan County Treasurer’s office.

    Pastor Bob Walker, or Brother Walker as I called him was my first pastor from the age of 2 until he moved on from West Guthrie Assembly. He was there when I gave my heart to Christ and he baptized me and many years later when I married my high school sweetheart, he was there to perform the ceremony. The world truly lost a man of God! I will never forget him and the impact he had on my life! “Good morning” …. it’s not morning…. “it’s always morning when you are raring to go!”

    RIP Brother Walker!

    One of our deceased ministers daughter and her son came here 2 years ago from Colorado and had no where to live . I called Bob to see if he had any rentals available and he had just gotten one that day. He let them move in that night . He was going to rent it for $1200. I told him she could only pay between $800-$900, so maybe she should look elsewhere, but he said he would it to her rent for that . She was overwhelmed with his kindness. She says she’d never met a kinder man. I couldn’t believe he took so much less than what he could have gotten . ❤️ I appreciated all the years he help me count the offerings at Camp Meeting and District Council. Always in a good mood .

    I attended his church as a young boy in Guthrie. He took us on camping trips with the Royal Rangers with the other men in the church and he helped us grow closer to God with his teaching, baptism, and fellowship. He did this all while leading though example. Our families spent time together and he administered my wedding many years ago. Though I haven’t seen him in quite some time, his impact on my life will always be with me in my life’s journey. My sincerest condolences to Mark and Cindy, as well as the rest of the family. Bob was a wonderful and blessed man.
