Michael Robert Walker “Lil Mike” was born in Columbus, Ohio on August 27,1950 to the late Robert Walker and Shirley Smith.


Lil Mike loved sports. He was a huge Cleveland Browns fan. He was also a big Ohio State Buckeyes fan. He was constantly on the go. He lived in Chicago until the winds got to strong, California until the earthquakes shook to much, and south Carolina a state he loved, but Ohio was home.


Lil Mike touched so many people’s lives. He was always smiling and sharing his wisdom from things like how to do the ham bone, play 3 card molly, chess, ride a bike without training wheels and so many other things.


Though he faced a tough assignment with his cancer battle he still motivated himself and others with his old saying such as “slow motion beats no motion” and “Do like the Hindu’s do; the best you can do”.


Michael leaves to cherish his memory, Brothers: Sean (Adrianne) Walker, William, Wesley, Howard (Karen) Walker. Carl Smith, Bobby Jones and Lief (Venessa) Smith Sisters: Felicia (POOH) Smith, Yvette  and Martha Smith: Special Folks: Griff, Baby James, James Williams, Sydney Williams, Izetta Brown and Neicce, Many nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.


Michael R. Walker…you are loved and will be truly missed by family and friends there will never be anyone else like you.

  4. It was fitting that when I turned my music on this morning that one of your favorite songs “Lady” by The Whispers was coming on I turned it up and immediately thought of you, me and Goldie and the Palm Garden days. Rest In Peace my brother.
