Christopher G. Walsh
Birth: Oct. 11, 1975
Kansas City
Jackson County
Missouri, USA
Death: Sep. 4, 2006, Iraq

Christopher Walsh, a St. Louis City Fire Department EMT was killed while serving in Iraq. Flags at fire halls across the city have been lowered to half-staff in his honor.

Chris Walsh, 30, was an EMT and Navy Reservist who died doing what he considered his duty. He died Monday when his convoy was struck by a roadside bomb.

He'd volunteered to go to Iraq as a navy corpsman or medic after enlisting as a naval reservist two years ago. He was assigned to a Marine detachment. What was clear was that he chose his own path, said Timothy Kirchoff, a friend and firefighter who worked with Walsh for several years. Walsh had followed a family history of firefighting and military service and pushed to be sent to Iraq, family and friends said

Walsh was born in the Kansas City area, but had moved to Florissant with his parents.

"He was an honorable person. He served all of us honorably and he died for a cause that he believed in."

The news of Walsh's death has been hardest on those who knew him best. Timothy Kirchoff worked as Walsh's partner for four years.

"He was the best partner I ever had and a very good friend. I'm going to miss him dearly."

He describes Walsh as easy-going, hard-working and the kind of guy who could make anyone feel comfortable.

"He'd give you the shirt off his back. He'd do anything for you."

Friends hope to also have a memorial service in St. Louis.

Walsh had worked as an EMT since April 2001.
