“I'm thrilled to death to be recognized by the city in any shape, form or fashion,” Walker told the Star-Telegram in October. "I love Euless, and it will be my home as long as I'm alive. Anything they do for me is a gift from God, and I'm grateful.”
While serving as a member of the council from 1975 to 1990 and from 1993 to 1999, he was on the Euless Non-Profit Industrial Development Authority, charter review committee, the economic development advisory board, Trinity River Authority and the half-cent sales tax education committee. Since leaving office he has served on the historical preservation committee.
