Goodbye Aaron
Midwest Region, May 31, 2011

During May, Columbia FWCO said goodbye to Aaron Walker.  Aaron started with the Fish and Wildlife Service in 2008, and he quickly proved himself capable of taking on whatever duties that were assigned.  He was a skilled Missouri River field technician, but he was just as comfortable in the office manipulating databases or in the lab aging fish. 

Aaron was a big contributor to the MICRA paddlefish project, pallid sturgeon monitoring program, and to sportfish management on Desoto NWR.  He was incredibly reliable when it came to completing fieldwork, often putting off personal plans to ensure the job would get done. 

Aaron was also quite adept at coming up with creative solutions for increasing our efficiency.   His easy going personality and ability to get along with everyone made him a very popular coworker.  In addition to his work with Columbia FWCO, Aaron also worked for Big Muddy NWR during the winters, putting up fences and signs, building kiosks, and whatever else they asked of him. 

Since his departure, Aaron has been volunteering his time and services to the people of Joplin, Missouri, helping them recover from the catastrophic tornado that devastated the city.  We wish Aaron the best of luck in his future endeavors.
