Channing C. Walker, age 90, of Davenport, passed away Sunday, July 1, 2012, at Heartland Healthcare Center in Moline, Illinois. He was born on October 12, 1921, in Des Moines, Iowa, to Dr. Charles and Ora Walker.
Channing was a member of the state championship swimming team for Roosevelt High School in 1940. He attended the University of Iowa and graduated from the University of Arizona with a Law Degree in 1946. After a brief law career in Baxter, Iowa, he settled into the insurance business, as an adjuster for Ohio Casualty and later State Auto.
The biggest loves in life were training his four Boston Terriers in obedience and agility. He especially enjoyed his years living in San Diego with his wife and Boston Terrier. There will be no service held at this time. A private memorial will be held at a later date.
