God Bless Billy J. Walker

I first became involved in Republican politics as a 16 year old kid in 1982. I grew up in the East Knox County community of Sunnyview. I attended and completed my education at the then Sunnyview Elementary and Carter High School. My mentor was my late State Representative and former Knox County Republican Party Chairman Loy L. Smith. One of the first individuals that I met, was my then County Commissioner Billy J. Walker.

Billy J. Walker passed away yesterday. He was a Good man. God Bless Billy J. Walker. My prayers and thoughts are with Betty and the rest of the family. Rest in Peace, Billy J. Walker.
