Mr. Furman Columbo Walker, age 40, of Walterboro, entered into rest Wednesday evening, May 6, 2020, in Colleton County as a result of injuries sustained during an automobile accident.
Born May 15, 1979, in Colleton County, South Carolina, he was a son of Mr. William George Walker and the Late Mrs. Gladys Craven Walker, who raised him. He was baptized at the family’s home church, Welch Creek Baptist Church in Walterboro. Columbo knew hard work in the construction industry. What he said he would do, he did.
