To Clayton and Kyle, my condolences to you and your family. I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to the service. I only met Charlie a couple of times, but I know my dad loved him and always spoke highly of him. I’d like to think there together now having some laughs and meat pies. I’m truly sorry.

To be called a "Good Jake" is the highest form of praise a firefighter can receive from a peer. Having worked with Charlie many times over the years, I can say without hesitation, Charlie was a Good Jake! May God bless him and his family.

My sympathies to all the Walker Family. My memories of Charlie were very fond....sitting on" The Ramp" at the Center sharing stories and enjoying Chucks laughter and explaining his techniques for growing vegetables. We lost a great one! God Bless you Charlie, rest in peace.

I was saddened to hear of Charlie's passing. I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to Charles III and Clayton and to all the Walker family. I have many good memories of Charlie and I working together for many years on Engine 3 at the Center Station. Charlie was an excellent firefighter and served the city with pride. I am sure he will be missed by all who knew him. I will remember him and Bev in my daily prayers.
