Cecil Wayne Walker passed away on Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2020, at the age of 64. He was born in Corpus Christi, TX on Oct. 11, 1956 to Houston Tommy Walker and Billie Louise Love Walker. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Thomas Lee Walker, and his sister Debbie Lamb.
He is survived by his wife Rhonda Walker, his daughter and son in law; Mandee and Jason Bonugli, his daughter; Sandi Kaye Wells, his granddaughter; Brinley Bonugli, grandson; Tyler Wells, brothers; Dale Walker and wife Krista, Richard Walker and wife Willemina and Billy Walker, sisters; Annet Wilke and husband Andrew and Karen Carroll and husband Steven.
Cecil grew up in Gonzales, TX graduating from Gonzales High School in 1977. He loved rodeoing, everything from bull riding to steer roping to clowning. If it entailed getting hurt or dirty he was all in. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and collecting antiques.
He was the toughest, most selfless, carefree, supportive, witty, loving person. He called it like he saw it and 99% of the time was right. He loved to have a good time and would always say life was too short to stay mad.
In loving memory of Cecil, have fun every day, do what you enjoy, laugh about the good times and always remember the memories he left in our hearts.
