Rock Walker Dies In California

Rock Walker, 51, longtime horseman and brother of California Morgan trainer, Garn Walker, was found dead on April 24 near San Diego. Rock Walker and another yet unidentified person were found murdered in the home of an older gentleman for whom Walker had been providing home care assistance. The homeowner was hospitalized at the time of the murders. The circumstances of the deaths are still under investigation, and police report the home had been ransacked and a car stolen as well.

There are no plans for a memorial service at this time. Garn Walker asks that donations in Rock's memory be made to AMHA youth-related activities, to reflect Rock's lifelong love of the Morgan horse and to commemorate the many years he successfully trained and competed, accumulating hundreds of world, grand national and regional titles.


A full tribute to the life and accomplishments of Rock Walker will be posted in the near future.
