As a little girl in his Community, I felt proud and protected when Lt. Walker was alive. He was always sure to make our community feel safe and loved. I mourned his death and absence because he cared about all Citizens and he and my Mom were great friends and co workers. They had a job that they both loved. His proud walk and confidence will forever be remembered!
