Mitchell Andrew Walker

June 1, 1983 - October 30, 2020

Obituary

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Mitchell Andrew Walker on October 30th, 2020. Mitchell was born on June 1st, 1983 in White Rock and is survived by his mother Judy Fogg of Anaconda, Montana, his father Tim Walker and his Stepmother Lorene Brandys of Naramata, BC , brother Kyle Walker, stepbrother Connor Templeman and step sisters, Whitney Templeman and Crystal Keller. Mitchell worked most of his life as a delivery truck driver and in warehousing work and often had a second job to keep up. If you knew Mitchell you remember his big smile and his kind and generous manner. Because he was a person of faith and because it was his nature to want to help others he was quick to agree to help if needed.

He touched many people around him because of his kind nature and his willingness to help anyone. Everyone who spent time with Mitchell knew of his great sense of humor and that big smile. Mitchell loved camping, golf, snowboarding, his plants, a good meal and maybe most of all a Timmy’s coffee. His happiest moments were sitting with friends having a cold one or a coffee and just being with people he loved, maybe around a campfire. Mitchell often related to people who were struggling and that was because he had many struggles himself overcoming many personal challenges with drugs and depression. One of his accomplishments was going back to get his high school diploma ten years after leaving school. A Celebration of Life will be held likely in spring 2021 pending the Covid situation and in lieu of flowers if you are able please donate to BC Mental Health and Substance Abuse www.bcmhsus.ca

I did not know Mitchell or your family. I live in Toronto. It was by happenstance that I came across Mitchell’s obituary. I want to thank you for such honesty in the obituary whereby you indicate that Mitchell struggled with depression and addiction. Too many people are ashamed to mention that causes that contributed to their loved ones death when addiction is included. Too many young people like Mitchell are afflicted with this disease. It is a disease and nothing to be ashamed of. it like no different than cancer – it is an illness that is so difficult to surmount. Mitchell had a caring and loving family who obviously understood the ravages of addiction. There is an addiction pandemic in this Country and sadly Mitchell was stricken with that disease. My condolences to all of you and may Mitchell now rest in peace.

I just read Mitchell’s obituary in the Langley newspaper. Your paragraph about his compassion for others who had struggles and his accomplishment in returning to get his high school diploma after so many years, was very moving .The things that brought him happiness were simple pleasures. Kindness is so important and I’m sure he made a difference to many. I often think of the Mitchell’s of this world struggling with their illness…..good people, loved by family and friends and gone too soon. Please accept my condolences.
