  1. RIP Coach Walker. One of the finest men with whom I have ever had the pleasure to work. An honest, hard working, brilliant man and coach. Thank you for the things you taught me and allowing me to share your office. All who were touched by him are better for it. Love you.

  2. When it’s all said and done, about the best thing that can be said of a man is that he was a “good guy”. Larry Walker was a “Good Guy” and every Kid he ever Coached or Taught in any way is a much better person for having been in his presence.
    Heaven has him now…..and Heaven is a better place just having Coach Walker there.
    Leave the light on Larry…the rest of us will be along shortly.

  5. It doesn’t matter how a person “Dies”….what matters is how they “Lived”!
    Larry Walker LIVED an exemplary life filled with care & compassion for students, student-athletes, co-workers, church members and friends. He was always willing to listen, encourage, redirect or counsel those who needed it. Just as Larry smiled on others…I know God is smiling on him. RIP my friend. You will be missed!!

    He was the most caring and knowledgeable person

  8. Sincere condolences to the friends and family of Coach Walker. May God provide comfort for you.

    I had the pleasure of meeting coach Walker in high school from 1994 through 1997 while playing football at LaMarque high school. I would describe him as a great man, a great mentor of young men, and a faithful Christian. He was one of the coaches that I could tell really cared about our future. Coach Walker will definitely be missed, but the lessons that he taught us and the impact that he made a on us will continue to live through us.

    God Bless,
