Cause of Death.
Meechie Walker’s cause of death was said to be cancer. He was reported to have died after a long battle with cancer, though the statement is not official.
Here are some statements posted on social media by friends and people who know Meechie Walker.
Connie Radford and others said,
The greatest thing Michigan has done over these last almost eight years of having Jim in charge is rare-established a culture of what it means to be a Wolverine. The program’s current state embodies the history of Michigan lore and accepts the team-first culture that was once at the center of everything.
Happy to see Meechie and so many other people who love Michigan be proud of their team and the leadership driving it again.
May you experience eternal peace and rest in Heaven, Meechie! You inspire many, and I’m praying for your family.
What a wonderful thing for Meechie, even when he was so sick. You’re the best Michigan Football! Rest In Peace now, Meechie.
God bless you, Meechie; your family and friends are in my prayers, and your courage and determination are excellent examples. Thank you for your time here with us as we continue the journey.
So sad. Too young. Prayers to his family and friends. Thank you, Wolverines, for going the extra mile to make this day so special for him!!!
When life dealt him a knockout blow, he chose not to wallow in self-pity but instead, he embraced life’s love and hope. I pray that we all can learn from him and be better human beings
Meechie was a true warrior, a Wolverine at heart. Thank you for lifting him and making him a part of the team. Prayers lifted for his loved ones.
He was sending prayers to his family, both blood and Blue. So thankful Michigan Football organization was able to let him live out one of his dreams!
We were at the game this year, where he was honored. It brought tears to my eyes. You have left your “positive attitude and joy for life” mark on many, many lives. May you Rest In Peace, young man.
Very sad. I remember seeing his story before one of the games this season. So young. I pray for his family with the heartbreak they are facing.
I attended the Maryland game, where he was honored with his family in the end zone. I wasn’t familiar with his entire story until I saw it on ESPN a week or two later.
He is a strong warrior, and I’ll pray for him and his family.
Rest Easy, Meechie! You put up one helluva fight. You were a true inspiration to so many. Bless you and your grieving family.
The young man was an inspiration to many, many people. Meechie, thank you for sharing your story and rest in peace, brother. Prayers for his entire family.
He’s been on my mind during every game!!! Praying for peace for this family!! I’m sure our guys will play in honor of him! God bless them all!
I prayed for Meechie to find some comfort in his arduous journey. Now I pray for his family. This was (and in spirit still is) an extraordinary young man.
He is free of earthly constraints & illness. Prayers to the family for peace & comfort. He is an inspiration to us all! Rest in Paradise, Meechie!
I’m so sorry to hear about Meechie! Such a sweet kid. Life is not fair at all. Rest well in your Maize and Blue. You were a true Michigan man!
All the prayers are for his family. Thank you, Meechie, for showing us all how we should love the Michigan football
I am so very sorry to hear of Meechie’s passing. Thank you, Michigan Wolverines, for embracing his and making him one of your own. May God grant him eternal peace and grant comfort to his family. Go Blue – Wolverine for Life…
His story left me in tears, but his positive attitude and grateful heart were excellent, and what a great role model!! RIP Meechie! Prayers for all his family and friends.
Prayers to all the family at this sorrowful time. He will be forever in the hearts of the Michigan Wolverines and every fan. You were such a great inspiration, and now you are a special angel in heaven.
Rest in peace, Meechie. You have inspired so many people and touched many hearts. You are in a better place now with no pain or suffering. I am sending thoughts and prayers to his family. May he test with maze and blue?
A true inspiration to so many. Life is more significant than football, and his relationship with this team is tremendous. Prayers for his family as they grieve.
Want an inspirational touching story for all? Such a wonderful young man. Prayers to his family that they will have comfort and hold his memories close to their heart.
