Walker passed away on Saturday, January 26, 2019. He was born on September 24, 1992 in Opelika, Alabama to Jerry Walker Bynum Jr. and Cheryl Magoni Bynum. He was a member of Dadeville First United Methodist Church and the Central Alabama Emmaus Community. He was a 2011 Dadeville High School Graduate, Faulkner State Community College Graduate, and attended Auburn University. He was scheduled to join the United States Air Force. Walker lived life to the fullest and had a very precious free spirit which he shared with many friends, teammates, schoolmates, coaches, and teachers. He always lived life on the edge; whether mountain hiking or climbing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, playing ball, surfing, fishing or exploring the outdoors; he was there! He loved to shoot guns and fireworks and to light bonfires. Walker never met a stranger. His love for people was on the edge of his sleeve and he would take the shirt off his back for someone in need. Walker was a very loving and protective brother and son. He loved God and he was always willing to share his testimony with others. Walker had a “one of a kind” sense of fashion and one would never know what he would be wearing when. He owned more miss matched socks that anyone on earth. He was Walker!

He is survived by his parents, Jerry Walker Bynum Jr. and Cheryl Magoni Bynum; sisters, Brannon Lee Bynum and Baxlee Alicia Bynum and his grandmother, Marilyn Brannon Magoni.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Rev. Jerry Walker Bynum and Permeillia Harris Bynum and his grandfather, John Charles Magoni.
