   Charles Michael (Mick) Walker of Palm coast, FL (formerly of Frederick, MD) passed away on April 3, 2024 in Jacksonville, FL. Mick was born in Washington, DC on January 5, 1944 to Lewis A and Thelma (Grass) Walker. He grew up in Silver Spring and Wheaton, MD. He attended Mackin High School, Montgomery College, and The University of Maryland where he studied studio art. Mick was a talented painter and was also passionate about fishing and cars. He worked as a mechanic for many years, eventually owning his own business in College Park, MD.  Mick later worked for SAIC at The Department of Energy as a technical analyst. Upon his retirement in 2003, he moved to Florida where he fulfilled his lifelong dream of living on the water. Mick was a man of deep faith, and an active and well-respected member of his church communities. He will always be remembered for his love of family, loyalty to his friends, sense of humor, and as our “Mr. Fix It.”  

He was our Superman.
