In Loving Memory of Jonny Walker

Jonny was a devoted father, street entertainer, campaginer, professional musician and activist.  

He brought hope for the sick, the lost, the vulnerable and the lonely.  Jonny touched the lives of thousands across the world with his music,  compassion and kind spirit.

It is incredibly moving to see the way so many are reacting to the news of my brother’s death. My family and I never imagined having to face life without Jonny.

Yet somehow it feels like he is still so close, as people continue to share the many incredible ways in which he touched their lives. We have been comforted greatly by this and have had countless people ask about ways they can show their love and appreciation for Jonny and all he stood for.

As a family we have set up this fundraiser as Jonny didn't have savings, and there is much to cover following his death. Funds raised on this campaign will first be used to help cover expenses associated with Jonny's funeral service and after-death costs.

Once those expenses are covered, our family will be looking into setting up a fund for his children and ensuring his legacy lives on through furthering the work of causes he so passionately supported such as homelessness, busking rights, and Keep Streets Live, the campaign for which he was both founder and director.

With heartfelt gratitude and blessings for all who loved him. x
