Obituary for Thomas J Walker Jr.

Thomas James Walker Jr. passed away on Friday, February 19, 2021 in his home after succumbing to heart failure. He was 74 years old.

Tom was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey on April 7, 1947. He was the only child of Thomas J. Walker Sr. and Myrtle Walker. He grew up in Edison, New Jersey with many cousins and ultimately moved to Bridgewater, where he graduated from Bridgewater West High School. After high school, Tom voluntarily signed up for the Air Force and served as a Radar Technician and a Computer Specialist while being stationed in Greece and Germany. He was honorably discharged from the Air Force in 1970. After his return to the states, Tom continued his computer and IT training, spending his remaining career working for Squibb, Siemens Medical System, HP and finally DCX Technology. He retired in the summer of 2019.
Growing up, Tom enjoyed football, baseball, sailing, fishing and swimming. In his middle years, he enjoyed competitive sailing, bowling and tennis. And in his later years he was an avid golfer and a proud Grandfather.

Tom is survived by this son Thomas N., his loving grandson Daniel, and his partner Sharon Miskewicz. Tom is also survived by his close cousin Edward Markano, several additional cousins throughout the world, and his nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by all.
