RIP Silverlake Walker

Any of you LA locals or visitors are probably familiar with the Silverlake Walker. You were guaranteed to see him any time you visited Silverlake. Sometimes I’d be taking someone new through the neighborhood, and I’d be telling them all about this guy, and then all of a sudden he would appear and walk right in front of us. Always shirtless, walking fast, always reading.

Just found out he died yesterday. People always thought he was crazy or homeless… but check out the video below the article! He was married and a retired doctor. Wow.

Here’s the article with video.

    Yes! That dude has his own mural too if I’m not mistaken. I used to get the two guys confused at first.
