John “Brian” Walker


October 22, 1952 – January 28, 2023


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of John “Brian” Walker in the early morning of January 28, 2023 with his family by his side.

He will be remembered by his children, Corinne, Jon (Candace), Rachelle (Jason); four grandchildren Alisah, Dublin, Ayva and Liam; his brothers Raymond, Clyde and Darrell; his sisters Charlene and Donna, along with numerous other nieces, nephews, family and friends. He was predeceased by his parents John and Rachel Walker and his brother Earl Walker.

Brian grew up in Snow Lake, Manitoba and spent his teens roaming Wekusko Falls. After a short career in the mines, he moved to Winnipeg and became a truck driver. He eventually landed at the Government of Manitoba in Water Stewardship.

A funeral service and reception will be held at Voyage Funeral Home 220 Hespeler Ave Winnipeg, Manitoba on Saturday February 18, 2023 at 1:00pm. Followed by a celebration of life at West Kildonan Legion 1748 Main Street in the Darlington Lounge on the 2nd floor.

The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at Middlechurch Home of Winnipeg for their care and compassion.

  1. Uncle Brian to me was a cool dude. Always thought he had the coolest car (a Monte Carlo red) and his awesome dog named Monte. When I would have sleep overs with my cousins. He would give us money to go get burger King, but of course to bring some back to him and Aunt Permina as well. Luckily we had family that worked there and hooked it up. He was a straight forward man and would tell us kids like it is and for that I thank him. He will be dearly missed and has left as a legend in time. R.I.P Uncle Brian.

  2. Uncle Brian,

    I am happy you have finally found peace, life as you knew it the past decade or so was not life but simply a state of survival. I’m going to miss you tremendously and will always remember you for the man that loved his camping trips, cooking by the fire, hanging out with family and buddies from St. Adolphe. And let’s not forget those huge bulging eyes you would get when you were mad, I got those eyes a few times growing up and it’s enough to make any crazy child behave!! Lots of love and will see you in the afterlife.

    Your niece,
    Whitney Burr

  3. The world loses a great guy. You always greeted and called me “Mr. Montreal” cuz I don’t think you knew my name, but that was fine with me. U introduced me to cucumber sandwiches, which I am thankful for. My condolences to Corrine, JDubs, and Rachelle and their families. Rest in peace Brian.

  4. It has been a long time since I thought of you, but you were on my mind today-February 18. I looked you up and was so saddened to find your obituary. We had some good times. I am glad it seems you had a good life. Rest in peace old friend. ❤️
