Walker Lundberg was born in Seaside, Oregon. He was active in high school on the track team, swim team and basketball team. He attended Oregon State University and graduated from the University of California in Berkeley.
He was a Navy pilot, playing on the Navy basketball team, flying in the South Pacific as well as the Naval Reserves. He started his own insurance agency in Sanger, California where he and his wife, Shirley, raised their three daughters: Emily Lundberg, Janis (Jani) Gurash and Susan (Susie) Corden. He was a successful businessman, growing from a one person office in Sanger to a large office in Fresno with satellite offices in the surrounding area. He was involved in the Independent Insurance Association, serving as president of the California Association as well as on national boards.
His life ended back in Seaside, Oregon - a fitting place. A rugged individual, known for his sense of humor, adventurous streak, and unrelenting energy seemed to parallel the characteristics found on the rugged, windy Oregon Coast. He is survived by his three daughters as well as his grandchildren: Evynn Overton, Rollie Corden, Eli Gurash, Scott Corden and Heather Gurash - and his great-grandchildren: Jack Overton, Amelia Overton, Daniel (Xander) Gurash, Henry Overton and Oliver Gurash.
