Fred "Jimmers" Walcker July 31 1926 - March 28 2021. Jimmers was one tough cowboy with quick wit and a contagious smile. He hung up his saddle and took off his spurs to be with the Lord. Born 1 of 14 children to John and Kathryn Walcker. He grew up in the depression era, so being self-sufficient was the only way to survive. All he wanted to be was a cowboy, and he was a horse whisperer before there was a word for it. He spent most of his years on the old "Will James" homestead east of Pryor MT. He had a colorful life and told countless stories about finding and trailing wild mustangs for weeks, all the way to Alkalie Creek, where the MT bucking horse took place before it was moved to Miles City. He got paid 2 dollars for each bronc he bucked out. He loved the cowboy life and applied nicknames to everybody he knew. His last cattle drive was the MT Drive of 89 with his team of sturdy mules and covered wagon. He is survived by former spouse and friend Daisy, twin son Matt and Mark Walcker, daughter Denise Walcker, grandson and caregiver Dusty Helgeson, granddaughter Anastasia Walcker and grandson Dominique Walcker. Cowboy may you rest in peace. Graveside service will be Thursday, April 1 at 1:30pm at Yellowstone Valley Memorial Park.
