In 1996, Dr. Thomas E. Walker, Senior Pastor and Founder of Main Street Church of the Living God and outstanding area businessman and community leader, along with his cousin, Deric C. Walker, Licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer, opened the doors of Walker Funeral Service and Chapel located at 566 North Water Street, Decatur, Illinois. During the year of 1998, LaKeshia Fox-Mizell was added to the staff as a Licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer. Dr. Walker had a vision to expand and with the advice from close friends in the Springfield, Illinois community who felt there was a need for the same professional, dignified, and compassionate service that Walker Funeral Service had committed itself to providing throughout the years in Springfield. In 2005, Walker Funeral Service, Springfield opened its doors to the community located at 2300 East Cook Street. In 2013 Walker Funeral Service & Chapel in Champaign, IL was opened.
