Mariposa Life

Debbie Croft: For Mariposa man it really is a wonderful life

Frank Bancroft Walker and his son Marc are “bachin’ it,” they tell me. Their 1930s Mariposa home is cluttered, but comfortable enough for the male residents. Marc left his job driving semis several years ago to care for his parents. Walker says he feels like he’s 89 going on 189. As a diabetic, he often receives phone calls reminding him of medical appointments or prescription changes. He gets around by using a walker. His wife Isabel passed away recently, but her influence is still seen in the home. It was against that backdrop that he shared some stories about his life and times.
