I want to introduce a fine lady and true friend…her name is Edith Anaya and she is a real estate agent thru Keller – Williams in Westlake Village Ca. Edith and I have been thru the real estate battlefield for 8 months and suffered loss after home loss..but now we found my home by the beach and the escrow finish line is in sight…she never lost focus, she is always available for my questions and has placed my schedule above her own as far as viewings and offers…so for my FB friends looking at selling or buying, if you want a true and dedicated agent, someone you can TRUST…Edith is a gem. And if you know any veterens looking for the same…she handles us with true care…Edith we did it!!
2 weeks in my new home, I am simply in awe with what I have done in the past 8 months. Hung up my uniform, re-located and found a terrific job in Port Hueneme, granted I am surrounded by the Navy, I have sworn before I retire, I will re-name Naval Base Ventura County, the Port Hueneme Army Base haha…To Errol at Military Housing Assistance Fund, Michael at Prime Lending, and my wonderful agent Mrs Edith Anaya with Keller-Williams, and of course my mom, you all carried me to home ownership and my second pride and joy after my son…We all love the “new car smell” how about the “new carpet smell”!! I thank God everyday for my blessings!!

He was born May 12, 1962 in San Jose, California to Donald and Beverly Walker. Ken graduated from Vintage High School in 1980 at the age of 18. Within a year, he joined the military. Ken spent 9 nine years on active duty, and during that time he was in Germany, Korea, Fort Knox Kentucky, and Fort Eustis Virginia. He did his basic training in Fort Leonard Wood. After active duty, he went directly into the California National Guard. At this time, Ken was deployed to Afghanistan in 2005, and was later deployed to Iraq in 2010. After retiring from the National Guard in 2012, he went on to accept employment as a Carpenter with the Defense of Logistics Agency, Dept. of Navy at United Army/ Department of Defense and Woodworker at Naval Base Ventura County, Bldg 380. Recently, Ken received his Associates Degree from Grantham University, Kansas City Missouri and he was going on to complete his Bachelors until the time of his death.
His son Andrew Walker, and his mother Beverly Walker; many friends, co-workers, cousins, aunts and uncles, survive Ken. His father Donald Walker and his sister Deanne Walker preceded him in death.
Before his death, Ken was always a loving, caring, humorous, brave and outspoken person, who will be deeply missed by the ones who loved and cared about him.

Today was the service for my dear friend Mr. Kenneth Walker. He will forever be my special friend and I will always treasure the American flag he flew in Iraq and gave to me the day I helped him move. May he now rest in peace
Kenneth Walker This song came out and made me think of you, missing you buddy, yes I have a husband, my boys and my dogs, but you were part of my life, my hero, brother, friend. I’ll be seeing Ms. Beverly on Sunday and I know it’s difficult on her, it’s our first holiday that you are gone . I love you!!!!
You have friends and family that were not able to attend, just wanted to share the service pictures…my favorite two is the one you are pointing at the t-shirt from San Antonio and our last conversation we had on 7/30/13 @ 7:34 pm, it ended with a happy face. I’m happy that we’ve met, to bad it was too short. — with Kenneth Walker. (9 photos)
