Conrad Pat Walker



Conrad Pat Walker was born August 15, 1924, in Duluth, Minnesota. He was an Army Air Forces veteran of World War II, a retired insurance company manager-agent, a member of St. Viator’s Catholic Church, American Legion, Knights of Columbus, Las Vegas Flying Club and a 30-year resident of Las Vegas.

Mr. Walker made an indelible impression on golf in Las Vegas by helping to create one of the first junior golf programs in the Las Vegas area, and he volunteered for many years with the Southern Nevada Golf Association. Mr. Walker was known as one of the best left-handed players the area has ever produced, and earned several high-level victories including the Nevada State Seniors Championship.

“I knew Pat Walker as a player and as a fundraiser for the junior golf association,” said fellow Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame member Stuart Reid. “Pat was dedicated to the junior program and worked closely with Joe LePire Jr. as Joe developed a junior program at the old Winterwood property.”

Longtime golf course owner and operator Orrin Vincent was very close to Walker. “I hired Pat at Angel Park back in the day,” said Vincent. “He was a good player and an absolutely great guy. Everyone loved him.

Pat was hired in public relations and really helped give Angel Park credibility. He was active in the Nevada State Golf Association and was a great sounding board for us on local golf. He loved people and fly fishing. I will never forget him!”
