Rick Games took over as chief of Elizabethtown Fire Department at the start of 1990. Tim Walker was one of his first hires.
“He was conscientious then like he was today,” Games said of Walker, who died suddenly Friday morning.
Games moved on to become president of the Elizabethtown-Hardin County Industrial Foundation while Walker served as city councilman and mayor of Elizabethtown. Upon Walker’s victory in the 2010 mayoral race, the two men again worked together to bring jobs to Elizabethtown, traveling to India to court industry.
