UMass Dartmouth grad, ICU nurse, killed in motorcycle crash being remembered



A local man who died in a recent motorcycle crash is being remembered.

32-year-old Christopher Walker of Taunton, died on May 11th from injuries he suffered in a two-vehicle crash.

At approximately 7:00 p.m., Lakeville Police responded to the intersection of Bedford Street (Route 18) and Rhode Island Road (Route 79) for a report of a motor vehicle crash.

Upon arrival, officers located a 2015 Honda CBR1000 motorcycle and a 2014 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck that had collided.

Walker, the operator of the motorcycle, was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital in New Bedford. No other injuries were reported.

According to an obituary and a GoFundMe fundraiser, Walker is being remembered for kindness, sense of humor, and as someone who devoted his life to helping others.

“Chris was a kind-hearted nurse in the ICU at Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton, MA, and with BAMSI group homes.”

Walker was born in Taunton, was a graduate of Middleboro High School and UMASS Dartmouth, and had a love for animals, fitness, gaming, and motorcycles.

A formal service was not announced.
