REAGON WALKER KILLED IN TRUCK/HORSE TRAILER TRAFFIC ACCIDENT

KAITLYN LARSEN INJURED

April 26, 2011
Up-and-coming PRCA steer wrestler Reagon Walker, 21, Ennis, Texas, was killed on April 23 from injuries suffered in a traffic accident. Walker and his girlfriend, Kaitlyn Larsen, a top young cutter from Weatherford, Texas, were on their way to an NCHA cutting with a living-quarter horse trailer on Highway 281 near Jacksboro, Texas. The accident involved a large truck that had pulled off the highway. Kaitlyn, the daughter of Billy Martin and Chris Larsen, was taken to the hospital; however, later was released. The horse were unhurt. Reagon was the son of 1981 World Champion Steer Wrestler Byron Walker of Ennis.

Walker, a student at Blinn College in Texas, had been a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association since 2008 after graduating from Ennis (Texas) High School and attending Weatherford College on a rodeo scholarship. While in high school, he earned two All-Around Cowboy titles, two Steer Wrestling titles and was Reserve Champion in Cutting.

He climbed up the PRCA world rankings in each succeeding year and in 2010, Walker won the Henderson County PRCA Stampede in Athens, Texas, in 3.5 seconds and the Crockett (Texas) Lions Club PRCA Rodeo. He qualified for the All American ProRodeo Finals in Waco, Texas, finished in a tie for second place in the Dodge Texas Circuit Finals Rodeo in Waco and finished 82nd in the world.

Survivors include his father, mother, Mary Walker, two grandmothers and several aunts, uncles and counsins. Services were held today in the Knights of Columbus Hall in Ennis, Texas.
