Bob Walker has spent most of his life helping people and serving others. Born and raised in Landrum, Bob graduated from Landrum High School and the University of South Carolina before serving in the U.S. Air Force

as an officer and pilot during the Vietnam

War era.

In 1966, Bob married Martha Johnson, and

they have made their home in Spartanburg

County for almost 45 years. Bob and

Martha have one son, Greg; a daughter-

in-law, Gina; five adult grandchildren - Sara
and Silas Rowland, Tommy Walker, Emma

Walker, and Anna Chesnut; and a great
grandson, Desmond.

At USC, Bob was a member of the Air Force ROTC and learned to fly airplanes. He went on to become a Jet Aircraft Flight Instructor and an Air Force Captain, teaching many brave pilots who would serve in Vietnam. After his military service, Bob returned home and continued his passion for aviation and still flies aircraft today. Bob's passion for flying was also inherited by his son Greg, a retired Lieutenant Colonel infrom the Air Force and the former Veteran's Affairs officer for Spartanburg County from 2012 to 2015.

Bob served on the School Board of Spartanburg School District 1 from 1981 to 1989 and
the Spartanburg County School Board from 1989 to 1991. He was elected to represent House District 38 in the S.C. House of Representatives in 1992 and served in that role until 2008. During his service, Bob helped Republicans take the majority in the House and served as Chairman of the House Education and Public Works committee. He received
many awards and recognition by various groups for his leadership during that time.

After his service in the House, Bob went on to serve on the S.C. Aeronautics Commission, the Spartanburg County Transportation Committee, the Downtown Airport Advisory Board,  the Spartanburg County GOP Executive Committee and the Middle Tyger Community
Center Board. In 2008, Walker was named S.C. Aviator of the Year and inducted into the S.C. Aviation Hall of Fame. In 2014, Bob Walker was elected to represent Spartanburg County Council District 5, where he is the Chairman of the Personnel and Finance committee. This year, he was elected as the Vice Chairman of Spartanburg County Council.

Like many of us, Bob works for a small business and is the owner of Landrum Professional Consultants. Since 1974, he has been helping clients with their insurance issues and other professional needs. Bob Walker is a leader in the Landrum Lions Club, has served as a deacon for Landrum First Baptist Church, and has been recognized for his dedicated civic service by being named the Citizen of the Year in Landrum in 1979.
