Walter Louis Leake was born in Oakland, Oregon to Samuel Walter and Theodocia Dora Agee Leake. They settled in Dixonville (aka Deer Creek), near Roseburg. Walter was from two Oregon well documented pioneer families, the Agees and the Thorntons.

Walter was in World War I and spent 21 months in France. He was married to Helen Curtis Campbell from 1922 until 1931. They had one child, Helen Patricia (Hagood), born in 1924. He was a farm implement salesman (Leake and Byers Co). Business was bad and he left the family during the Depression, divorcing Helen.

Walter remarried a woman named Emily B. Olson in Vancouver, Clark Co, WA April 30 1937. He then married a woman named Anita M. Watson. (m. 1956) and they ended up in Cornelius, OR. An article was written about him in the Oregonian, "Bohemian in Roseburg" c. 1950 by Don Engdahl. He died of diabetes complications.
