    History Sidney graduated in 1955 from Greenfield High School. After his graduation, he joined the U.S. Navy, serving on board the U.S.S. Intrepid until his discharge in 1957. According to his obituary, "Following Walker's honorable discharge from the United States Navy, he worked as a milk tank driver for Tenney Farms of Northfield. He later worked for more than 25 years, as an employee of the Bernardston Grain Mill. He also worked for the Town of Northfield road crew, Case Brothers Paper Mill, Smead Lumber and Cersosimo Lumber, retiring in September of 2001. Sid and Sheila opened their home to many young relatives during their married lives. Though never formally adopted, the Walkers helped to raise two of their nephews, Ernest Frost Jr. of Northfield, MA, and James Aldrich of Guilford, VT. Through his mentoring of these two boys, Sid grew to think of them as his sons. Walker's interests included deer hunting, small engine repair, woodworking and visiting with family and friends."  [2
