Mike,

Thinking of you, Michelle and the girls this evening. You were the best sergeant and mentor I ever had, but more importantly a true friend and extraordinary man. RIP my friend.

Hey there Dad,
I don't know how it's been eight and a half years, but it has. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I wonder how different things would be if you were still here but then again... I sometimes feel like you are.
I see you all around me and my memory of you lives on and always will. You are my biggest inspiration and my strongest motivation. Mom always reminds me how you would ask yourself "Will I regret *not* doing this?" I use that same idea whenever I find myself unsure of what to do in a situation.
You will never be forgotten.
I love you always.

Mike, his partner for the evening M. Redel, and I were assigned to work Graves that night. A group of officers and I were assigned to assist Santa Cruz PD with crowd control. Mike, Redel, and I were discussing the flooding and subsequent mudflow on the street where he lived. Mike was reminiscing on the perfect day he had with Michelle, his daughters, a friend, CHP Lt. John Smith and his family that day at the Monterey aquarium. Mike was great at story telling and told us some real good ones of when he lived in San Francisco as a young man. When it was time for briefing, Mike repeated some of those same stories, much to their delight. He and Redel, went to go eat at KFC and later patrol on that rainy night.
My group and I reported to Santa Cruz PD for foot patrol. I was paired with a PD sergeant. As we walked, I monitored radio traffic and could sense something had gone terribly wrong. So, I returned with my SCPD partner to a pre-arranged meeting point with my guys. They all picked up the same radio traffic and all agreed to continue with their duties to assist SCPD as I began to drive up the mountain. A few minutes later, Dispatch asked for me to report to the accident scene, to which I responded that I was already on my way. I arrived on scene. . . .
The rest is reserved for another, more personal forum.
I remember Mike to be deeply committed to his family. I remember how Michelle and daughter were amazing in their reach out to comfort others in the days, weeks, and years to follow. I am inspired by their strength.

Happy Birthday Mike aka Big Red! I hope you didn't mind that I brought us a Bud Lite to share. You know how it is, as we get older we have to keep our studly figures... By the way, not a day goes by that I don't think about you and Brother Bob. I had good times working with you in SF, Co Co and GGD doing PSD. Bob did a great job training me up for the job and then I had to pass the test so that I could be graveyard partners with you. Whenever I think I'm having a hectic day, I think about you and it puts everything into perspective. And I do stay in touch with the Walker Family. Say Hi to Bob and the gang up there. I miss you dude!

Mike (9919) may you rest in peace. I remember when we started out in CLA and didn't have a clue what we were doing. We were partners for most of our first year on the job. It was the start of a great friendship. A few years later we ended up in CoCo back together and we had a lot of fun with the Gang of 9. Over 10 Years later, we were both PSD coordinators for our neighboring Divisions and were able to work along side each other again. You are and will always be a Great Man, a Great Husband, and a Great Father. Say Hi to Bob, he is missed too.

You will never be forgotten.

We never forget. I met your wife and daughter today and it clicked who they were just after they left. I am a police officer's wife and do not know your family personally but I attend most officer funerals with my husband. I was sorry to miss yours. I remembered your end of watch date and that we lived in the same City. God Bless you and your family, and know that you will always be remembered.

I am a paramedic who was on duty when Lieutenant Michael Walker was struck by a vehicle. I had a conversation with him just minutes prior to the accident. It was truly a sad day for all of us on duty and off. I think of him every time I drive on highway 17 and see his sign. I remember him telling me he was out helping due to staffing. My short time with him will be in my memories for the rest of my career.

On this sixth anniversary day, I am thinking of Michelle and your daughters today. I am also reflecting on your sacrifice as you protected and served the citizens of California, and as always remembering how kind you were when you escorted me home from John Muir Hospital after Larry was killed.

Rest In Peace.

Mike....no doubt you are watching down on that family of yours and you have much of which to be proud. The girls are growing in wisdom and grace. Michelle is a wonderful mother who is their mother first, and friend second, and doing a great job raising them with great values and strengths. As we approach the 6th anniversary of your passing, know that you are not forgotten, that you are missed by those who loved you and those who worked with you, and by those of us who never met you but who know we lost a very good man because your light still shines brightly through all the good that is Michelle and the girls.

For Michelle-

I just wanted to say thank you for expressing your condolences on our tragic loss of Walker Police Officer Trevor Slot yesterday. My husband Scott was one of the officers you spoke to in Washington DC at the Police Memorial Service in 2006. I distinctly remember him coming home from that week and seeing how profoundly touched he was by you and your children. I know that he will also be touched when I show your post to him. Thank you so much for remembering us now at our darkest hour. Our prayers to you and yours also as you approach the 6 year mark of your loss.
