Ambers Walker Jr., 91 of Long Branch, known to many as "Terry," passed away on Sunday December 6, 2020 at Monmouth Medical Center, Long Branch, NJ. He was born to the late Ambers and Catherine Walker of Quincy, FL but due to an untimely death of his parents, 3 year old Terry was raised by his aunt Aggie.
He was educated in the Florida public school system where he found an interest in becoming a Projectionist. He later joined the United States Army in 1950 where he continued learning and growing in the Audio and Visual field. His love for technology later led him to become employed with companies such as Lucent Technology, Electronic Associates, Inc. (E.A.I.), Bell Labs and later he became the supervisor of the Audio and Visual department at Brookdale Community College (BCC) where he retired in 1991. In the meantime, Terry co-owned and operated Unity Funeral Home, Jet Cleaners both of Long Branch and CS&W cleaners of Asbury Park. After his Brookdale retirement he went to school for his Black Seal license and became a certified licensed Boiler Operator and Certified Democratic Committeeman for the City of Long Branch. He was employed at the First Baptist Church of Red Bank where he worked up until he retired once again at the age of 89.
