I did not know Evans Walker, but he was killed along with my cousin CPT Larry Paul Stotler, Evansville, IN, and MAJ Michael F. Field, Arlington, VA. I am sure he is missed by family and friends, and was a good friend to Larry.

* From the Obituary of Evans S. Walker *
From one who remembers,
This is dedicated to a brave husband, father, and grandfather. He sacrificed his life for the love of his country. Evans Spencer Walker was my grandfather. He left behind a wife, two sons, and a daughter who loved him greatly. He now has five grandchildren including myself. We didn't know him, but we love the stories of the man he was.
My grandfather was so dedicated to his country that he made it his life and fought in three major wars of our history, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam war. He was a decorated working man of the Army. When he was killed, he was an E8 MSGT. When he wasn't fighting, he spent his time training other soldiers.
In remembrance of my grandfather I will be visiting DC this spring 2006 for Memorial Day. I will be visiting the memorials for the wars he fought and riding with the Rolling Thunder as we protest over the lack of support that our government has for the missing, captive, and deceased men and women that give their all for all of us. I would like to believe that my grand father would be proud of what he left behind.
Rest in peace, you are not forgotten, and will always be loved by all of us!
From his granddaughter,
My name is Craig Walker, son of MSGT Evans S. Walker.
I would like to make contact with anyone who knew or served with my Dad. If you knew him or anything about him I would like very much to talk with you. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
