100 years’ young Wilfred Walker


Three cheers to the birthday boy

Dedicated to Wilfred N Walker 

One Hundred Years

One hundred years of laughter

One hundred years of gain

One hundred years’ of friendships found, and lost and found again  

A life lived by example,

adventure at the heart of it

With standards high and mind so sharp,

was the crossword your secret?

Proud and regal, lionesque

we sometimes heard you roar!

but gentle kind and funny too,

we loved you even more

Jamaica was your place of birth

but London was your home

We celebrate a life well-lived

And the man we were proud to have known.

RIP Wilfred N. Walker

21st July 1911 ~ 2nd June 2012

A life well-lived.
