Mack Lawrence “M.L.” Walker, Jr., age 73, of Taylorsville went home to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, December 3, 2021 at Catawba Valley Medical Center. He was born on August 21, 1948, the son of the late Mack Lawrence Walker, Sr. and Edna Mae Childers Walker. During his career, M.

For the last few years, M.L. was attending Liledoun Baptist Church with his family, but was a life-long member at Poplar Springs Baptist Church.
