John Cusworth Walker IV, 63, passed away unexpectedly on February 1, 2020. He was a resident of White Stone, Virginia.
The son of the late John Cusworth Walker III and Louise Leahy Harrison, Mr. Walker was born and raised in the Washington D.C. area and spent summers in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware surfing, playing guitar, and spending time with his family. He was a graduate of East Carolina University, earning a B.S. in Business with a concentration in real estate.
He began his professional career working for John C. Walker Companies, a land development and construction company in Chevy Chase, Maryland, representing the seventh generation of his family involved in real estate and construction.
In 1987 he and his young family moved to White Stone, Virginia where he started Walker Homes Inc., a custom home building company. Walker Homes Inc. built many homes throughout the Northern Neck, and Mr. Walker’s care and attention to detail is evident in the homes he built and the relationships he formed along the way.
Johnnie was a passionately curious person. He studied a variety of subjects ranging from genealogy and sacred geometry to music and aquaculture. His friends and family marveled at his ability to weave seemingly unrelated subjects together into lengthy explanations of the world and the way things work. He was always good for a great story.
He was fiercely loyal to his family, and there was nothing he loved more than spending time with them, whether sitting outside on the veranda watching the sun rise, going out on the boat with his grandkids or working on a project with his boys. He could outwork anyone.
Survivors include his wife of 37 years, Lucile O’Shaughnessy Walker; two sons, John (Sean) Cusworth Walker V (wife Miranda Lee Walker) of Burlington, NC., and William Bradley Walker (wife Jenifer Elaine Walker) of White Stone, Va.; two grandchildren, Willow Elaine Walker and William Wren Walker; six siblings, Betsy Lamond, Louise Rose, Jennifer Walker Kitchens, Margaret Walker, Billy Walker, and Susie Gilday; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The Walker Family invites friends and family to a celebration of life ceremony at Currie Funeral Home on Saturday, February 8th at 1:00pm. The family will receive visitors prior to the ceremony from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. A family burial will take place at a later date at historic Oak Hill Cemetery in Washington D.C.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Johnnie’s memory may be made to Oak Hill Cemetery Historic Preservation Foundation, 3001 R Street, NW, Washington, DC 20007.

I'm so sorry to hear of John's passing. I've been charmed and delighted by John's descriptions of so many off beat facts and ideas beyond genealogy .I have worked on line with him for several years on his family genealogy that extends to Francis and Catherine Walker ca 1720 in Prince George's County, MD. I am currently collecting my work on this line and will donate it to the Prince George's County Historical Society Library. If any of John's family are interested they will find this information there. I also have included it in my tree on titled Dorman Walker. I can be contacted through that or directly at
Again my heartfelt sympathy to his family. Sincerely, Joan Majtenyi

When my wife Janet showed me a video this morning where Kris Kristofferson was being asked as to what prompted him to write the song " Why Me Lord" I didn't think much about it at first. And then I realized that I had witnessed that same scene. Kris was invited to church by a friend, and while there the preacher asked if anyone was lost, would they please raise their hand? Kris raised his hand but didn't realize that he had. Then the preacher asked would those that raised their hand come forward? And Kris said to himself..." not me". And then when he realized he was standing at the altar in front of the preacher, he didn't know why he was there. He described about not remembering much of what was said, but he did know he was weeping and was experiencing an in-explainable feeling of forgiveness that he didn't know he even needed. I experienced this experience with Johnnie on a Sunday morning in a small church here in Kilmarnock many years ago. Somehow I can imagine Johnnie in a conversation right now with Jesus, and Jesus' reply is "Johnnie it's going to take a while but here's the rest of the story".
