Alan J. Walker

July 08, 2014

Kingston, N.H. — Mr. Alan James Walker, 68, passed away peacefully at his home on July 8, 2014, after a long, brave battle with cancer.

Alan was born in Lewiston, Maine, and spent most of his youth in Newburyport, Mass., where he graduated from high school. Soon after, he left his beloved parents, Marilyn and Harry Walker, to pursue his education at UNH, Keene, where he earned an arts degree and began teaching at Timberlane Regional High School. He also built houses with his future father-in-law and worked for research and development at Nike, Exeter, where he designed for all the stars of the day. Being a huge Boston sports fan, it was an easy fit.

In those early days, he met his loving wife, Kathryn Diane Parsons, daughter of Gladys and John Parsons of Malden, Mass. Alan and Kathryn would have been married for 50 years next February.

Alan is predeceased by his precious son, Jonathon James, from whose death he never recovered.

He is survived by Daddy’s girl, Emma Kate Paris, her devoted husband, Jean Claude, and their two sons, John (Jack) Henry, 15, and Adam James Weston, 6. They were his heart, which broke the last time he saw Jack. They shared a great love and knowledge of fishing.

Sadly, he also leaves Kathryn’s sister, Deborah Louise and her husband, John Weston Edney. Neighbors nearly forever – Alan never had any siblings, which made his love for them even more true.

Finally, Alan leaves his favorite cousin, Ann Comeau, with whom he shared many happy childhood memories, and her husband, Leo Comeau. Alan and Kathryn’s Burmese cat, Zu-Zu, comforted him daily.

ARRANGEMENTS: The family plans a private prayer service when Alan’s ashes are home and placed next to Jonathon’s. They will never be far from Kathryn.
