A local man is dead after his plane crashed at an air show. Bill Walker died instantly when his YAK plane crashed to ground in a air show in Palm Coast FL....Bill was a well liked man, so hard to believe he's left us so soon, sad for his family! He died doing what he loved!

Yes, Cathy and Bill had three children Eric, Daniel and BonnieKate. Cathy also just lost her Stepfather this past week. Our prayers are with her and her family. I wish The Hearld-Citizen would be a bit more careful when publishing an article about such a sad and tragic accident, then maybe the wouldn't make carless mistakes like "Bill is survived by his wife Joyce and their three children."

I agree, Hearld Citizen is so " happy" to get a story going, they sometime lack tact inquiring the "accurate" information.

well the H-C also left out Joyce's children. Sometimes our hometown paper does a poor job in reporting the story.

I think your missing the point. To me it read like a tribute to him, and not an obituary

The obituary hasn't been published to the Funeral home's website to my knowledge., therefore the HC wouldn't have been able to run it. It was just a story.

I saw them out quiet a bit and they seemed such a happy couple. You could just tell the way they were with eachother that he adored Joyce. I know she must be devastated. My prayers are with her.
