Lynn R. Walker, Founder Our History

At the end of WWII, Lynn R. Walker left the United States Air Force with a desire to join the funeral industry. During his service, he had discovered his passion for honoring the deceased and for supporting the bereaved. His goal was to create funeral services that would help families find peace and comfort at the difficult time of death.

Mr. Walker's journey started in Los Angeles at the California College of Mortuary Science. After graduation, he returned to Utah and earned experience with local mortuaries before embarking on his goal of founding his own firm. Mr. Walker opened the doors to his first funeral home in Spanish Fork, Utah in 1952 and his dream became a reality-a harsh reality-as he struggled for years to keep the doors open. There were existing funeral homes in the area that had long been established in the community. Without ever being deterred, Lynn Walker persevered knowing that his unique philosophy and genuine caring in funeral services would set him apart in the long run.

As his reputation grew and his determination won out, Mr. Walker began to establish himself as the prevailing funeral director in Utah County. He opened his Payson location in 1971 and his Provo location in 1973. The plan included that his funeral homes would always be overseen by family, so, after he personally and successfully ran his company for many years, Lynn Walker passed the operations and his love for the business on to his sons Stewart and Allyn. They, along with five more of the succeeding generation of Walker's have been running the business ever since.

When the opportunity came to open a location in Orem, Utah, Stewart and Allyn Walker met Tom Sanderson-a local funeral director of 20 years. Mr. Sanderson agreed to bring his experience and expertise into the Walker business to contribute to growth, expansion, and increased reputation for offering the best. In 1993, they shook hands to create Walker Sanderson and establish themselves as the leader in offering compassionate and professional care.

For 60 years now, Walker Family Mortuaries have been very proud of the quality of the services they offer and will continue to do so for generations to come.
