NEW KENT, Va. (WTVR) — All across Central Virginia, members of the public are joining with law enforcement to memorialize the life of Master Trooper Junius Walker, who was killed in the line of duty last Thursday off I-85 in Dinwiddie.
“He was a mentor, I looked up to Master Trooper Walker,” Sgt. Ron Grammer, a 14-year veteran of the state police, said Sunday.
Grammer and his family came up with idea of hosting a car wash Sunday afternoon behind the New Kent Sheriffs Office.
“Even if we just get one car it will be worth it,” Grammer said.
In total, Grammer raised over $200 in just a couple of hours. All proceeds will go toward the Virginia State Police Emergency Relief Fund, a fund where the Walker family has asked all donations be sent.
