A Life Well Lived
OSCAR LEE “BOSCO” WALKER entered into eternal rest April 18, 2023.
He was born on June 20, 1943 in Wrens, Georgia to the late Percy and Elizabeth Walker.
Bosco graduated from Lincoln High School in 1962. He was employed during early adulthood as a Fireman for the city of Riviera Beach. As a young man, he married the lovely Aljosie Davis.
Bosco was a talented woodwork artist. He displayed his restoration of driftwood pieces at many art shows in Palm Beach County. He also loved reciting poetry. His favorite poetic pieces were: The Creation by James Weldon Johnson, Christmas in the Workhouse by George Sims and The House by the Side of the Road.
He enjoyed singing in his high school chorus. On fifth Sundays Bosco could be found in the choir stand with the male chorus and occasionally he could be heard singing “Have a Little Talk with Jesus.” One of his greatest joys was fishing. He caught mackerel, snook, blues and pompanos.
He relaxed while listening to his extensive collection of music.
Among his many talents are gourmet cooking. He was best known for his mouth-watering conch fritters and his succulent rack of lamb.
Left to mourn are his children: Rhonda Garner (Van Johnson), Chavela (Jeff) Graham, Jacqueline (John) Deas, Greta (Jessie) Hunt, Corey Brown, Courtney Walker, Keith Davis; his Siblings: Bettye (Otis) Knighton, Willie (Wanda) Walker, Loretta (Prince) Ferguson, Percy Walker, Jr. Also grandchildren: Marcus (Jessica) Walker, Jakalya Graham, Eric Culbreth, Morgann Graham, Caelin Peavy; Great grands: Jace and Alec Walker. He leaves a brother-in-law, Rev. James Bentley. He also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends including James Edwards, Claude Young, Dr. Philip Braziel and Richard Wester.
