    Many many laughs and opinions shared throughout those years at Sylvan Hills and won’t be forgotten. Sweet young man and too talented.

    Had the pleasure of meeting his sister in law several years ago and was able to make connections with him. Had plans to meet for lunch and he called earlier that day to cancel due to some health issues… but know he is in Great Hands performing all sorts of artistry..

    God bless the Walker Family as they move through their loss… our loss.

    Sadly, Rae-Lene Wolf (SHHS-class of 72)
