Steven C. Walker, 72, of Bowdoinham died June 26, 2013 at Parkview Adventist Medical Center after a year of declining health. He was born in Lynn, MA, the only son of Valborg and Lloyd Walker. The family moved from Saugus to Maine when he was four and Steve graduated from Richmond High School, Class of 1961. He enlisted in the Coast Guard and served in the Coast Guard Reserve.

Steve had the good sense to marry his wife, Joann of Freeport, in 1965 and they had two children. Steve was a man who enjoyed working, not only as a machinist at BIW for 37 years, but also on his farm as a "hobby" and true to form he "loved" his John Deere tractors. Steve enjoyed other interests like mountain climbing (Katahdin six times), white water canoeing, camping and simply traveling – once, all the way to Alaska (before deciding to turn around).

Steve is survived by his wife of 48 years, Joann Walker of Bowdoinham; his son Steven and his wife Penny of South Portland and their children Skye and Brooke; his daughter Sherry and her husband Paul of Bowdoinham and their children Aaron and Brynne and Aaron's son Ethan; his brother-in-law Daniel and his son Daniel; his brother-in-law David and his wife Julie; his brother-in-law Paul and his wife Carol; sister-in-law Jane; as well as a large extended family of cousins and wonderful friends. He was predeceased by his sister Constance.
