Former Grand County Commissioner Jimmie Walker will be remembered as a stalwart defender of the citizens of Grand County. He tirelessly fought to promote economic opportunities for the local residents while protecting traditional values and a rural life style.

I am honored that he was by my side during the Sage Brush Rebellion and that he was a true friend. His memory and influence will continue to live on through his family for decades to come.
