Notes:  Junior LeRoy Walker was known to his friends as Roi.  Although born in Sutherland, Utah, Roi spent some of his early years in the Oak City area and attended Delta High School.  Later he attended Dixie college and the University of Utah before going into the army.  After a short break in service to become a civilian again, Roi went back into the army and made a 26-year career of it.  Following his retirement from the Army as a lieutenant colonel, Roi worked for BYU in the Educational Media Division.  After seven years there, Roi started his own multi-media business and ran it for several years before ultimately retiring.  Once Roi had lived in Orem for a few years, he ran for the office of city councilman and served in that capacity for several years.

During his lifetime, Roi was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many callings.  Some of these included bishop, high councilman, district president, choir director, and faithful home teacher.  He had a great love of scouting and helped many young men attain the rank of Eagle Scout.  Roi and Aileen served in the Australia Perth Mission from 1987-1988.

Roi passed away on 28 Jul 2008 at CareSource Hospice in Holladay.  He was 87 years old and resided at 425 South 900 East in Orem, Utah at the time of his passing.
