Several hundred showed up Thursday night for a vigil in front of his Lampson Road home on Cleveland's east side.

"We take care of our own," family friend Carol Cole told Channel 3. "Prayerfully we hope this crime will be solved."

Walker was killed by gunfire outside his home late Sunday, and police have not yet arrested a suspect in the case. The slow pace of the investigation was a theme of Thursday's vigil.

"Do not let the person who took his life win," said Dennis Trip, a fellow member of Walker's Masonic brotherhood. "Where he fell, we must rise up. We need someone to rise up and take his place."

A Masonic service will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. at Boyd's Funeral Home at 15357 Euclid Ave. Masons are asked to assemble at 8:30 a.m.

There will be a public viewing at Boyd's Saturday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. until closing and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

There will be a civil service Monday at 2 p.m. at the Cleveland Public Auditorium at 500 Lakeside Ave.

Uniformed personnel will assemble at noon for a final salute, and the family will receive friends starting at 1 p.m.
