Mason Vernon Walker, 28, of Virginia Beach, VA passed away on July 30th in a tragic accident while on vacation in Florida.  Although he left us far too soon, Mason left this world a better place.

Left to cherish his memory are his parents, Robert “Bob” Walker and Joane Galloway Walker (Donnie), whose love he knew and felt every single day.  He is also survived by his siblings, Storm Walker, Adam Walker (Rebecca), and Joy Chatburn (Anthony).  He has many nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and his cat, “Mittens.”  Mason was preceded in death by his grandparents, Durrell and Julia Walker and Richard and Janice Galloway of Virginia Beach.

Mason was a devoted son, loving brother, and friend. Always selfless and dependable, he was there when you needed him, never expecting anything in return.  Mason loved days on the beach surfing or relaxing with friends and family, from here to Ocracoke.

A natural athlete, Mason excelled in every sport he played.  Before graduating in 2012, he was the varsity captain of the First Colonial High School boys’ volleyball team. He was selected First Team All-Eastern Region and All-Beach District. As an outstanding outside hitter, Mason proved to be the “go-to guy,” his coach said in a Virginian Pilot write up.

In recent years, Mason enjoyed playing golf on a short workday and on weekends with his friends.  He valued time with his friends and family.  He, his brother Storm, and their friends enjoyed playing disc golf and bowling.  Mason, Storm, and their dad often spent time together shooting pool.

A couple of years after high school, Mason began working for A&B Floors where he learned how to install, sand and finish wood floors.  He learned quickly and excelled.  He was always the first to show up, rarely missed a day, and always paid attention to the details.  He became a well-liked crew leader and trained others in his field.  He took great pride in his work and proved to be a very skilled craftsman.  Mason also enjoyed woodworking when time allowed, buying a lathe, and turning wood into various creations.

Mason had a beautiful smile, a warm heart, and he loved his family and friends deeply. He left a good and lasting impression on everyone he met, and he will forever be remembered as that fun-loving yet gentle, pure soul that he was.

Mason’s family will hold a public memorial at Altmeyer Funeral Home Maestas Chapel on August 27, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. 1801 Baltic Ave., Virginia Beach, VA 23451.

I’ve had the of knowing all of Bob’s kids but really saw often and got to know Mason really well. As kids I used to mess around with he and Storm often as Bob was and still 35 years later my accountant and best friend. I was and still shocked as most of us are. I never ever saw this young man not be happy, great since of humor but by far he was always there for his dad. Bobby I know this is killing you is it with any man or woman losing their child or any of their children it’s just awful and nothing can ever be said to make it feel better but just know I love the hell out of you man and you’re still the best rockstar I’ve ever known. May he rest in peace. Love, syd

The only time that I got to meet Mason was when his dad brought he and sister Joy to South Carolina where they got to see their dad shine on guitar. After the gig he told me that he had never heard his dad play with such freedom. In our very short conversation about his dad and about playing golf the next time he came down, I came away thinking what a good looking great guy with an outstanding personality. What a shock it was to hear of his untimely passing.
RIP young man and our prayers go out for your friends and family!

I’m truly sorry to hear of Mason passing as I know he was a joy and comfort to both you, Joan and family. There’s nothing I can say that will remove the grief you and your family must feel at this time! Our children should never leave first! Just remember he’s in GOD’S hands now! I know he’s looking down on you and your family! He’s at rest and I pray all your family takes solace in knowing he does not want you to always grieve but to celebrate his life and the time you all had with him! One day you’ll meet again and rejoice in the knowledge you’ll all be together for eternity! I wish you now all find peace in your hearts and remember he loves everyone of you! He would want you all to continue to live your lives in the knowledge he loves you and he’s at peace with our Lord and Savior! Warm regards, David Robinson
