Reflections for Deputy Warden Galen Carter Walker

Deputy Walker, on this 159th anniversary of your brutal murder, you have the distinction of being the first LOD Death listed for this date. A distinction I wish you did not bear. You died a hero.

God Bless and I hope and pray your rest over these many years has been a peaceful one and may it continue for eternity.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 153rd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Deputy Warden Walker, today marks the 150th anniversary of your vicious murder. The Department of Corrections plays a vital part in the criminal justice system and each individual who works within that Department has my respect for the job done. As far back as 1856, folks like you helped protect society but sadly, there are times when it can cost a life. You knew the risks and were there on the frontline anyway.

Thank you. In spite of all the time that has passed, you have not been forgotten.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
