Grover, Wyoming - - Walker Patterson "Skipper" Inman, Jr. died peacefully in his sleep on February 24, 2010 in Denver, Colorado. He was born March 11, 1952 in

Florence, S. C., the only child of Walker Patterson Inman and Georgia Polin. He was orphaned at the age of ten and lived with his aunt Doris Duke, internationally known heiress and

philanthropist. They remained close until her death and Walker was appointed executor of her estate.

Walker was a passionate free spirit, and

adventurer and explorer, a true swashbuckler. His total life was centered around his family. As a family man his two children, Patterson and Georgia, were more important to him than life itself. His true love and soul mate Daralee gave him the contentment he was searching for his whole life. Walker traveled on his much loved yacht, "Devine Decadence", from South Carolina and discovered the South Pacific. He also spent a lot of time with his nephews and niece, David, Bart, Mat, and Heather. After a major refit, he took the boat back to Hawaii, meeting his friend and Captain Brett Armstrong. The boat is now kept in New Zealand, where he enjoyed extensive cruising and dinner parties on board.

He was a gourmet cook and an avid gun, knife, sword, and steam engine collector. He looked

forward to training his camel, Sinbad. A

pyrotechnics expert, his 4th of July fireworks

displays are a legend in the Wyoming Valley below his mountaintop home in Grover. His quiet

generosity changed many lives. He divided his time between his Grover ranch, "Outlaw Acres" and Greenfield Plantation near Georgetown, South

Carolina, that he inherited from his father.

He is survived by his sister Susan and her children, David, Bart, Mat, and Heather.

He will be sadly missed by his faithful Mastiffs, Doolie and Doolie, Jr., "DJ"; his twin children,

Georgia Noel Lahi Inman and Walker Patterson

Inman, III; along with his wife, Daralee Inman.

Services will be held at the Holy Family Catholic Church, Afton, Wyoming on March 11, 2010 at 1:00 pm and at Greenfield Plantation, 2713 Choppee Rd., Georgetown, S. C. on March 13, 2010 at 1:00 pm.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at editors@trib.com, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
