FAYETTEVILLE — Dwight Thomas Walker, 68, of Fayetteville, Ark., passed away Sunday, Sept. 23, 2012, in Fayetteville after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was born Dec. 29, 1943, in Joplin, Mo., to Raymond and Cella Mae (Wilkinson) Walker.

Dwight held to a high work ethic with values based on hard work and diligence. From his teenage years until retirement in 2006, he was never without a job.

He was employed as a service technician from 1975 to 1980 at Dan Stanley Ford in Joplin, Mo.

From 1980 until 2006, he was plant manager at Light & Sight in Springdale.

He was an avid NASCAR fan and enjoyed woodworking. He was a good neighbor, mowing yards, picking up trash containers from the curbs, and lending a hand and tools with odd jobs.

He was a member of Christian Life Cathedral in Fayetteville.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and two infant sisters.

He is survived by his wife, Judy; two sons, Doug Walker of Cordova, Tenn., Brad Walker of Siloam Springs, Ark.; two brothers, Paul Walker and wife, Maggie, of Virginia, Mickey Walker of Kansas; stepchildren, Matt Eilers and wife, Marcela, of Texas, Shelly Spencer and husband, Donnie, of Bentonville, Ark., Tim Eilers and wife, Juanita, of Texas; and nine grandchildren.
