Stephen Philip Walker, BHS '67 (1949-2015)
Stephen Philip Walker
January 3, 1949 - February 26, 2015
Today, I received the following sad news:
I just found out that a classmate of ours from BHS class of ‘67 had passed away. Steve Walker and I had been friends since 8th grade at Luther Burbank Junior High. I got a call from his neighbor in regards of a letter I had sent Steve and he informed me that Steve passed away in his sleep on February 26, 2015 at the age of 66. His 66th birthday was in January. Steve and I played a lot of golf together during high school up a DeBell. Steve was living in Pacoima, CA at the time of his death.

Class of ‘67
In the Ceralbus yearbook under Steve's name is says, "Coll. Prep. Marching Band 10; Camera CLub 10, 11, 12; Chemistry Club 12. Looks to the future at a JC."
Here is a 2009 photo from our class reunion.
Please keep Steve's family and friends in your prayers.
I am so sorry to hear this. I knew Steve all there way through school in Burbank and always liked him. Many prayers for his family. I am sure he will be greatly missed.
Very Sad! RIP Steve! My deepest condolences to your family and friends!

I'm so sorry to hear about Steve. He lived on the next street over from Screenland. Our back yards met. I would climb over the fence and myself an others had fun playing games. Good memories of him. My heart goes out to his family and friends. My deepest condolences to Steve's family and friends. R.I.P. Steve.

Like Diane Ward, I knew Steve since kindergarten. It was great seeing him at all of our reunions. We still exchanged Christmas cards. I got one again just this year. He will be missed.

My Condolences to Steve's family and friends. Good journey.
So sorry to hear this. I spoke to him a couple of months ago and he was looking forward to the reunion in August. Wanted to take me and Nancy out to dinner!! He lived right behind my house growing up in Burbank. I use to jump my backyard fence to play and he had a building that had his train collections in it and would show me his trains run. I am sadened by this news.
My condolences to Steve's family and friends!
How sad. One of the nicest guys around--literally would give you the shirt off his back. A kind and decent man.
This is exactly why each and every one of our reunions are so important to attend. Life throw us a lot of curve balls and you just never know! With each reunion, we take away memories of those near and dear to us! We also make everlasting friends that touch our hearts and keep their memory alive!

This is so sad, I always talked to him at our yearly reunions, truly a super nice guy. RIP
Very sad to hear this. I grew up with Steve at Franklin Elementary, Luther Burbank and then at Burbank. Spent a lot of time with him at the last reunion we attended. Very nice guy. He will be missed.
Great Man! Rest in Peace Steve!
I lived next door to Steve, his mom and dad, Irmadale and Barney, on Pepper St. As a matter of fact Steve was my first "client" as a babysitter. I've often wondered about him, did he marry, have children? What did he do for a living? Nicest family you could ever hope to meet. Sorry to hear of his passing.
