October 8, 1991 - July 13, 2021
Richard Bernard Walker, Jr. of Worton, MD died on July 13, 2021 at Cadia Healthcare in Annapolis. Ritchie was born in Chestertown, MD on October 8, 1991, the son of Richard Bernard Walker, Sr. and Gwendolyn Towson Walker, both of Worton, MD. He was a graduate of Kent County High School. He was involved with both K.A.R.T. and the Kent Center, where he participated in the day programs. He enjoyed watching cartoons and action movies, he loved books, and especially loved balloons. His favorite color was red. Ritchie will be remembered for his infectious smile. His best friend was his mother, Gwen, and they loved to spend time together reading books and going on their walks. Gwen remembers Ritchie’s spirited attitude as both a child and adult. He loved his red wagon and always wanted to hold the handle, so she would bend her back until it just about broke to pull him around in it. He also loved his Big Wheel, even when he was too small to reach the pedals. Once again, Gwen would get creative to make Ritchie happy, and tied pantyhose to the front of the bike to pull him around while he steered the handle. Everyone who met Ritchie, loved Ritchie. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Florence and Joseph Towson; paternal grandfather, Morris E. Walker, Jr.; and paternal cousin, JaWan Harris. In addition to his parents, he is survived by his paternal grandmother, Rev. Mary Walker of Worton, MD; his maternal aunt, Lisa Towson (Charles) and her children Dashira and Steven Caulk, Jr; paternal aunt, Vivian Swinson, and her son Lamont; his uncle Morris “Chris” Walker III (Diane) and his family Vaune, Chandra, and Christine; uncle Gordon Walker (Robin) and his children Dante and Allie; great-aunts, uncles, and numerous cousins; as well as his nurses and caregivers. Services will be held on Sunday, July 25 at 1:00 pm at Fellows, Helfenbein, and Newnam Funeral Home in Chestertown with a visitation two hours prior from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm. Interment will be held privately.
