Jonathan Blake Walker, 27, of Blackshear, passed away early Thursday morning, March 18, 2021, at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, from injuries sustained in an accident.
Born July 7, 1993 in Waycross, he was a son of Michael Felton and Shannon Cullop Walker. He lived most of his life in Blackshear and was a 2011 graduate of Pierce County High School. He had attended the University of North Georgia and studied criminal justice, graduating with a bachelor of science degree in 2016. While in college, he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) Fraternity. He had served for six years with the Georgia National Guard and was currently a deputy with the Ware County Sheriff’s Department. He was a member of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Blackshear.
He was a true southern gentleman — dressed to the nines and never had a hair out of place. He was a great husband, son, brother, friend and dog dad and was a man of few words, but when he spoke, people listened. He had a heart for serving others and always lending a listening ear when people needed it the most.
Preceding him in death was his paternal grandparents, Bobby and Margaret Walker; his maternal grandfather, Herman Cullop and an uncle, Bobby Walker, Jr.
Survivors include his wife, Ericka Trott Walker, Blackshear; parents, Mike and Shannon Walker, Blackshear; sister, Michaela Walker (fiancé Trey Peacock), Blackshear; grandparents, Norma Cullop, Hazlehurst and Ken and Terry McQuaig, Euless, TX; his in-laws, Ray Trott (wife Beverly), Helen, GA and Kay Trott of Cleveland; brother-in-law, Ryan Trott (wife Nickie), Jefferson; sister-in-law, Miranda Cantrell (husband Benson), Cleveland and several aunts, uncles, cousins, and other relatives.
