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.

He is predeceased by his parents, daughter Quetta Bell and grandson Andre Walker.

He is survived by his wife Margaret Walker of 41 years, daughters Amber Congiaoco (VA), Jo-Ann Walker (PA), Deneise (George) Mills (NJ), sons Ambers "Skip" Walker III (NJ), Jerold (Dianna) Walker (NJ), Eric (Crystal) Gillespie (GA) and Terrance Walker (FL); grandchildren Marqus, Mychal, Travis, Tyree, Eriq, Isiah, Cadence; great-grandchildren Xia, Ari and Korbin; cousins and too many friends to count.

  1. Derek & Maria Taylor says:

    We love you Terry and Margaret

  2. Claudia Matteo says:

    I have known the Walker family the longest of all my friends, so I consider them as family. My sister and I grew up with our lil’ bro’ Terrance and I remember Eric’s beautiful artwork. We have great memories playing in the back room of the Brookdale audio video (AV) department, having fun at Armed Forces Day, wrestling, and racing. The holidays were not complete without Mrs. Walker’s sweet potato pie. Chewing cigars must have been relaxing ’cause Mr. Walker was always in such great spirits with his humor and smile. What a blessing to have a lifetime of happy memories with such a caring, loving family! <3

  3. Linda (Bucky) and Jack Ryan says:

    I worked for Terry from 1980-1983, in Brookdale’s AV Dept. He couldn’t have been nicer to us student workers. Normally a good worker, one day I accidentally tipped over a TV cart I was pushing from building to building. Fully expecting to be fired, Terry said, “That’s ok Bucky, accidents happen”. I am thankful til this day because I needed that job. I have nothing but fond memories about Terry. Me and my husband Jack (who also worked at BCC and loved Terry) send our condolences to his entire family.

  4. Dr. David Stout, President of Brookdale Community College says:

    Please accept my condolences on behalf of everyone at Brookdale Community College. We will honor Terry with a moment of silence at our next Board of Trustees meeting for his years of services as Supervisor of our Audio/Visual department. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  5. Helen Loori says:

    Heartfelt sympathy to you and your family Skip. Over the years I heard wonderful things about your dad. He was a special man and will be greatly missed. I’m keeping you all in good thoughts. Helen L.

  6. Rodney Snell says:

    Dear Margaret and family,
    Your loss is my loss also. I have only fond memories of the funny, kind, loving man I knew my entire life. He was strict, uncompromising, and wanted from others what he was always willing to give – his very best. While I am unable to be there, all my thoughts and prayers are with you. I will speak his name and celebrate his life with gratitude for God’s benevolence. May cherished memories always bring you comfort and peace.
