Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center released the following statement:


We are shocked and greatly saddened by the sudden loss of our friend Matthew Walker, III. A genuine man of debonair style and sophistication, Matthew lifted the tides around him with every conversation. His long-term support of our health center ensured the continued legacy of his grandfather Dr. Matthew Walker, Sr. in word and deed. Our thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy are with his family, today and always. Dr. Walker’s obituary can be found here.

Dr. Walker was pivotal throughout the planning process for each year’s Dr. Matthew Walker, Sr. Legacy Breakfast, which was held just last week. We will always remember the many stories he shared about his grandfather as well as the inspiring presentations he made to our scholarship recipients.

Funeral arrangements will take place next Wednesday, May 5, at Schrader Lane Church of Christ. The viewing is at 10am, and the funeral is at 11am. The funeral will also be livestreamed.

The Walker family has requested that those who knew Dr. Walker record a video about their favorite memories with him.
