We are young in many ways but not all; younger a year ago, younger now than next month or next year and some already are aging no longer..

Stephen Philip Walker
January 3, 1949 - February 26, 2015

Today, I received the following sad news:

Cathy:

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.

Regards;

William B. McMillan
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.

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.

Great Man! Rest in Peace Steve!

Kathleen Becker
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.
