John S. Walker Shipping supervisor

January 10, 1991

A memorial Mass for John S. Walker, who retired as head of shipping for a padding manufacturer, will be offered at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at SS. Philip and James Roman Catholic Church, 2801 N. Charles St.

Mr. Walker, who was 82, died of cancer Saturday at his home in the Forty-Three Hundred North Charles Apartments.

He retired in 1974 as head of the shipping department of William T. Burnett & Co. Inc., which makes polyurethane foam for padding and other uses. With Burnett for many years, he previously was a shipping supervisor with other companies.

Born in Panama but reared in Baltimore, he was a 1927 graduate of Mount St. Joseph High School and attended Loyola College and the University of Baltimore.

A stamp collector who also painted in oils, he was interested in the history of World War II -- especially the air and sea campaigns -- and made models of the airplanes of both sides.

His first wife, the former Anne Neuman, died in 1977.

He is survived by his wife, the former Catherine Kerr; a daughter, Linda Anne Keeley of Baltimore; a stepson, Richard Kerr of Chatham, Howard County; two stepdaughters, Jean Benjamin of Timonium and Anne O'Ferrall of Catonsville; four grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
