“We were very good friends and we would go hunt and fish and cowboy and do all that stuff together,” Walker said. “He was a super-good guy. I will miss him tremendously. As a friend, he is irreplaceable. He also was a rodeo contestant, committee person and president of the Montana Circuit, so he was an integral part of Pro Rodeo in the state of Montana.”
