To Family, we can only say what an honor it was to have spent quality time with the coach over the years. A lot of laughs on the golf course, mostly because of everyone's play except the coach. One of our most treasured photos is of the coach smiling down at our son Jesse as he held him shortly after he was born. B&C and Wanda, we are sorry we can't be with you, but you are in our thoughts as always. Our regards to the Walker family.
Aloha, Steve, Jazz and Family

To the Walker & Hopp families, it was a distinct honor to have met "Coach" Walker. It may have only been briefly but a delight none the less.

As a former Vice President of Championships at the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, I would like to express my deepest condolences to the Walker family at this difficult time. Dr. Walker was an NAIA icon, serving as a longtime member of the Executive Committee, a term as NAIA President and an inductee in its Hall of Fame. He was Mr. Track and Field within the NAIA and all of the coaches and institutions were proud of him when he rose to his positions with US Track and Field and later as Chairman of the United States Olympic Committee. A man of enormous character and unparalled principle, he was simply one of the most important figures in Olympic sports in the 20th century. God rest his soul.
April 26, 2012
My sincere condolences to the Walker family. God does not forget our loved ones or us as we have to cope with this loss. We are encouraged to throw all our anxieties upon him because he cares for you".

Dr Walker will always be part of my life story. I had the best time working with him during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics games. I knew he was an important person with the U.S. Olympic Committee, but he never put himself first. He was always willing to answer questions and give help if you needed it. I am blessed to have walked in the footsteps of great people like the coach. Thank you Dr. Walker and may God Bless You to continue to do great work.

My sympathies go out to LeRoy Jr., and the rest of his family. I met "Coach" while I was working for the NAIA in Kansas City, MO, in 1991.
He was attending the 50th anniversary luncheon, where 23 out of 26 past presidents were in attendence. We spent time together in New York at the 1993 tennis games. He set up an interview for me at the Olympic Committee
Board meeting in Dallas, Texas, and also with
the USOC in Atlanta, for the games there.
Whenever he came to Kansas City, he always took time to visit with me and my sons. He was so excited to get to meet my first grandson in 1994.
He was a wonderful human being, and one of my favorite coaches. May he rest in peace!
Sincerely, Kelly Bax (Leawood,KS)
