Obituary for Edward Walker

Edward Walker "Tico" was born on September 1, 1938 in Bronx, New York, son of the late Efford Walker of Orangeburg, South Carolina and Louisa Ileta Walker of Charleston, South Carolina. After Edward was born, his parents married and moved to Linden, New Jersey.

Edward attended Elementary School #2 in Linden, New Jersey and later attended Linden High School. After high school, he served in the United States Air Force during peacetime for 2 years. He lived in New Jersey for 48 years.He was employed as a Chemical Operator at Allied Chemical in Perth Amboy for ten years.

Edward met his wife Searthia at a social gathering in Linden, New Jersey and later married in July 1957. Five months later, they were blessed with their first child Ileta Walker and they moved to Elizabeth. Seven years later, in April they had their first son Attila and had their last son Omar 2 years after.

Edward started his first business, “Aquarius,” which was a record shop located on First Street in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Subsequently, the couple opened a sandwich shop called “Feed Your Face” and a restaurant in East Orange called “Searthia’s.” After Searthia passed away, he relocated to Columbia, South Carolina where he lived for about ten years. A few years after his second wife passed away, Edward’s health started to decline so his daughter moved him back to New Jersey under her care until he transitioned.

On Sunday, January 28, 2018, Edward Walker passed away at Arista Care at Delaire Nursing Home in Linden, New Jersey surrounded by his family at the age of seventy-eight.

Edward leaves to cherish precious memories, his daughter, Ileta Brown; two sons: Attila Walker (Sitwa) and Omar Walker (Belvia); mother-in-law, Hattie Davison; 8 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, dear relatives and friends.
