It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Aidan Walker, beloved son of Kevin and Khin (née Kyone) Walker, cherished brother to Connor and Erin, grandson to Karen Walker and Hans Weber, Keith and Judy Walker, and Ken and Nancy Kyone. Aidan was immeasurably loved by Aunt Kim and Uncle James, Uncle Ken, Bari, and Aunt Kelly (in spirit), Uncle Elliot, Uncle Soe Lwin and Aunt Shirley, and cousins Cody, Grace, Andrew, Kristen, and Justin.

Aidan suffered an irrecoverable aneurysm on January 2nd, 2021. Aidan was an outgoing 19 year-old young man with a bright future. He was a competitive swimmer with Markham Aquatic Club for 10 years where he achieved national level competition. He was a brilliant student completing high school at Bill Crothers Secondary School finishing with highest honours. He was studying engineering at the University of Waterloo.

Aidan had a large group of dedicated friends with whom he loved spending time. He had a love of music of all genres and loved listening to his Dad’s old 70s music. He had a newfound interest in cooking and enjoyed sharing recipes and assisting Mom in the kitchen. He recently took up chess and spent several hours every day honing his skills and rising steadily in the chess rankings. He spent his final day with his girlfriend Tianhui playing ping pong and baking treats. He passed peacefully at St. Michael's Hospital with his family at his side.

Most of all Aidan just loved to be amongst the people that loved him as much as he loved them.

In his final act of unselfish caring, Aidan was able to provide vital organs to an adult man, adult female, and a kidney to two toddlers.

Aidan - you are forever in our hearts.

Please view the photo page and video page for some of our fondest memories of Aidan. Also, visit the photo sharing site where some of Aidan's friends have been posting.

Funeral Services
A funeral service will be held in person for family only, but will be streamed.

Following the service, a procession from Chapel Ridge Funeral Home to Highland Hills Funeral Home Cemetery (via St. Andrew's East Golf Club) will take place.

An online celebration of life will follow at a future date.

For those that would like to express their gratitude for the care Aidan received you can donate at the St. Michael's donation page.

Dear Walker Family,

I had gotten to know Aidan at University and his first year at Markville and I would often see him around campus and on residence. Aidan was an amazing person and represented the best in people. I remember how he would make others laugh and how friendly he was - taking every chance he would get to play a game of ping pong or learn about other people.

I will remember Aidan as the kind, brilliant, and caring human being that he was.

My heart and condolences is with your family this evening.

He will forever be a part of the people who knew and loved him and he will live on in the people he so graciously donated to.
Aidan had one of those contagious true smiles. If you saw it you automatically smiled back. He will be missed but remembered forever.

Posted by Ethan Jong on January 15, 2021
It's an early morning on a bus ride to another travel meet. Some swimmers are sleeping, some are on their phone, and some are blasting music. A Queen song pops on someone's speaker, it's Bohemian Rhapsody. As the song intensifies and reaches its climax, I begin to notice an additional voice that I was sure was never part of the song. I look over and it's Aidan standing and singing the lyrics with much gusto. "THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTNING VERY VERY FRIGHTENING ME." A performer he was.

Wednesday morning at BCSS, I am sitting quietly on my phone in the cafeteria waiting for the bell to mark the start of school. I wasn't good at making friends then and felt uncomfortable sitting in the cafeteria where everyone had their friend groups and were chatting away. I'm reading Japanese comics on my phone when he comes up to me and starts firing questions at me about what I was reading and how I was doing. I felt comfortable in that moment and I felt as if I could sit in the cafeteria as long as I wanted to, so long as Aidan was there to talk to me. Sometimes we are afraid to approach people who are alone in fear that it would make us seem weird. Aidan was not that type of person, he cared for others and made sure that "no Colt walks alone."

"Aidan's heat is up next!" cries one of the swimmers. I launch into my photographer mode because Aidan had asked me to film his 50 Metre BR finals. He had given me his phone to film on. I quickly run across the large bulkhead to get to the other side of the pool for a better angle. Bad mistake. As I'm running with his phone, a random swimmer does an arm swing and knocks his phone out of my hand and into the water. "Oh he won't be too happy with me," I mutter as another swimmer retrieves the phone from the water like a pearl diver, except the prized item isn't shiny and is worth nothing. After his race I tell him the news and apologize. "Oh no worries, is it okay if I just use your phone on the bus ride home for a couple of minutes to tell my parents when to pick me up from pan am?" His calm reply shocked me more than when Brazil had lost to Germany 7-1 in the world cup. Everything went well, and I will remember him as a very forgiving and kind person.

From having a blast watching the Eagles to just swimming laps, I will never forget each moment, act of kindness and laugh. 19 gone too soon, but 19 lived extraordinarily well.

Rest in peace Aidan.

Dearest Walker Family,
There are no words that can express the sadness I feel for each of you during this unbearable time. I will forever remember Aidan as an exceptionally bright young man, ever polite, unassuming, with a sweet smile. I hold dear the conversations with Kevin and how proud he and Khin were of Aidan.  I pray that each passing day eases an ounce of your pain. 
Posted by Jeevan Dhiman on January 14, 2021
To the Walker family, I would like to offer my deepest condolences for this truly tragic and sudden loss. Aidan has been like a brother to me ever since we met in elementary school. He was a remarkably talented, caring, and funny individual with a very bright future ahead. Over the years we have created countless memories that I will forever cherish. From commuting to school together, doing homework, or even cutting grass in the summer there was never a dull moment with Aidan. Although his time with us has ended way too soon, I will forever be thankful for all the laughs and lessons we have shared over the years. May he rest in peace.

We are just incredibly saddened by the news of Aidan's sudden passing. From what has been written about him, the world has lost a wonderful, intelligent young man with a bright future. We admire him and all of you for your selflessness in gracefully handling the donation of his organs, setting an example for others to do the same. We are just so very, very sorry for your loss.

My sincerest condolences to the entire Walker family. I had the pleasure of coaching Aidan at MAC, and being a part of his journey. Seeing him grow and develop into such a bright young man with so much potential from his earlier swimming days is a highlight of my years coaching with MAC. Always up to something, his knowing smile was also very endearing and I will remember him like that forever.
Posted by Isha Verma on January 14, 2021
We have had the pleasure of knowing Aidan for many years. We remember carpooling to school together, him always beating everyone in Just Dance in our basements, hanging out in his tree house, and watching him grow into the amazing man he was. We looked up to him and admired his laid-back, caring, funny and kind attitude. He would always go out of his way to help anyone who needed it. We feel grateful that he was a part of our lives, and were proud to call him our friend.

Our hearts are heavy by this unexpected tragedy. You will remain in our hearts forever Aidan. Rest easy.

My sincerest condolences to Khin, Connor, Kevin & Erin on your loss. Words are not enough . I only coached Aidan for a year but I remember him to be a quiet and intelligent young man. My fondest memories are actually of Tyler Chan and Aidan messing around in practice... before practice... after practice. They seemed to know how to push my buttons just enough to get me going . It was always in fun and they both seemed unfazed by a coach constantly harping on them to pay attention. Aidan will be missed by his friends, family and the entire swimming family.
Posted by Alan Chan on January 14, 2021
My dad, YC Chan who used to carpool Aidan and Tyler for MAC swim practice helped me translate Tyler's tribute posted on January 9, 2021 into Chinese in remembrance of Aidan:

I am still in disbelief that I am writing this. Just two months ago, we were sharing an apartment together, cracking jokes about politics and video games, deciding what we should get for takeout at midnight, and going back and forth with the same silly banter we shared since we were young.

I never realized that our conversation a week ago would be one of the last times I ever spoke to you. There is so much that I will miss. Simple things, like the conversations we had, the videos we shared with each other, our petty wrestling matches in the basement – just the effortless comfort I felt when being around you. There is so much that I regret we never had the chance to do together.

I can think of few other people with the same peculiar curiosity about the world as you. The same smarts and wit and straight common sense as you. I looked up to you in a way you will never know. And I can think of few other people I could really consider a brother.

I have lost someone I could depend on for solid advice and whether it was something funny, difficult, or uncomfortable to talk about, you listened.

Your humor, sincerity, and kindness will stay with me and everyone you knew, forever. It was a blessing and an honor to call you my best friend.

There are a hundred funny anecdotes and stories I want to share about us, that make me smile when I think of them, but I could not possibly fit all of them here and I know I would not be doing them justice. But in all our grief, It gives me comfort knowing that you are resting soundly now and that one day, we will have the chance to reminisce and laugh about them together again.

I first taught Aidan in grade 10 science. I remember that some topics did not interest him as much as others. Some days he was playing a game on paper with a classmate. By the time I taught Aidan in grade 12 physics, he knew exactly what he wanted to do and was confident, as I was, that he would succeed. Aidan always seemed to strike an excellent balance between his competitive swimming, academics and any other interests, knowing which one should take priority at any time, even if that meant missing the odd practice or putting off homework for now. Unbeknownst to Aidan, I used him as a role model for other students that felt overwhelmed by the simultaneous pressures of school and competitive sports: Cut practice once in a while, Aidan does.

Aidan also realized that it is important to have fun while learning. When Aidan started a sentence with “Doc” and a short pause with a smile, I knew to be prepared for him to say something that would make his classmates laugh at his teacher, usually with a one-liner given with excellent delivery. Aiden had a smile that would cheer up others around him, or that seemed very calming when his peers seem stressed. I enjoyed the enthusiasm that Aidan brought to class and I appreciate having had the opportunity to teach him.

Aidan was also a member of the (infamous) BCSS Family Joules team that competed in University of Waterloo’s inaugural Engineering Management Competition. Those students, most of which were close friends, created their own team, which in my view was a super team destined to win. I am sure theirs’ was the best submission, but unfortunately (and slightly humorously) a few unedited bloopers showed up in their final submission and so they were disqualified. Thank goodness what happens in physics class stays in physics class.

Goodbye Aidan. Thanks for making me laugh, often at myself. I looked forward to you making me proud in your post-secondary studies.

They say friendships that are formed young are always the purest. At that age, there is never any ego or ulterior motive involved when becoming close to someone. You spend time with your friends solely because you enjoy their company. This was the type of relationship I had with Aidan. For the past 13 years of my life, I had the pleasure of having a brother even though I was an only child. Aidan and I became friends in grade 2 after having moved to Unionville Meadows from a different school. I was a lonely kid who didn’t know anyone, but Aidan was always kind enough to invite me to play handball at recess or sit with him during lunch. Our bond quickly grew deeper until we would hang out every day during school and after, at each other’s houses. Throughout the years I saw him grow into the kindest, intelligent, and most sincere human being that I ever had the pleasure of knowing. We made so many memories together such as me hitting him in the head and knocking his front tooth out, playing on the same sports teams and going to the same summer camps for years.

Out of all the people I knew Aidan had the most beautiful mind. He was always the smartest guy in the room, but he would never flaunt it because he was always extremely humble and respectful. He would spend time during lunches helping people with math problems and he was always willing to be there when someone was in need. He always had my back no matter what and he stayed by my side throughout the years to become a part of my family. I don’t think I will ever meet another human being like Aidan, someone who is selfless and has such an infectious smile that it would brighten up even my darkest days. Not a single day will pass in my life when I won’t think of you and the only thing that I can do is strive to be an intelligent and kind person like you were to honour and carry forward your memory. You were the brother that I never had, and you taught me so many things that I will never forget.

My heart goes out to Mr. and Mrs. Walker, Erin, Connor, and the rest of their family and I am truly sorry for your loss.

I love you brother and when I see you again, we’ll finish our sparring sessions.

Rest in peace, Aidan.

Dear Walker family,

Your son was an incredible person. What an honour it was to know him, and how I wish I’d known him longer. Although calm and quiet, Aidan’s presence never went unnoticed. He offered a unique and infectious energy – always laughing, smiling and knowing just what to say to light up any room he was in. He even used to send me pictures of sunsets “just because” he knew how happy they made me. Kindness like this is rare. Aidan was also gifted with a brilliant and passionate mind that always amazed me. He would often call to share his (very advanced) thoughts on consciousness and reality – challenging me to think in new and innovative ways, for which I am grateful.

There is so much more that I could say about him. Someone with all these qualities should have been arrogant, but Aidan remained humble and down-to-earth despite everything he offered. I was constantly in awe of him, as I know many of us were.

Aidan has left an impression on me that I will carry forever. From reading these tributes, it’s clear that this impression extends to all the other lives he touched. And there is no doubt in my mind that, with more time, Aidan and his brilliant mind would have made an even bigger impression on the world. We always talked about our big dreams; I know he would have seen his through and that the world would have been better for it. He was taken too soon.

I offer my deepest condolences. Your family is in my thoughts and in my heart, as is Aidan.

This is one of the most difficult things I’ve had to do in my lifetime … say good-bye to a much-loved grandson.  Aidan accomplished many things in his short life and showed so much promise for the future. Always in his quiet and unassuming way, Aidan stood out as a person who cared about others and took the time to assist wherever he could. I can remember him, as an 8 year-old, standing at the kitchen door when we were celebrating occasions, waiting for me to assign a job to him, those big eyes taking in everything but not wanting to disturb me from whatever I happened to be doing. He was so willing to lend a hand in any way. There were times at the cottage when the family gathered for the weekend and all the cousins got together for games, swimming, meals on the deck, and gathering around the fire pit at night. Aidan loved those special times with the cousins he didn’t see too often. As he got older, we didn’t see a lot of him as we moved out of town but that only made our family gatherings much more special. The last time I spoke to Aidan was on his birthday when he informed me that he couldn’t read my cursive writing on his birthday card … and I told him to try harder. What a wonderful young man Aidan was, full of care and concern for others, never bragging about his many accomplishments – so willing to let others stand in the spotlight. How we will miss him, remember his thoughtful and caring ways and wonder how much better this world would be if Aidan was still with us. Love you always.

Suddenly there is a big hole in my heart and our lives. Aidan has been ripped from all of us.  As his step grandfather, I had the good fortune to see Aidan grow from the little baby to the amazing young man who had the future ahead of him.  There are the memories when he jumped into the pool from a diving board before the age of 2 years; when he dressed up as James Bond in a tuxedo, bow tie and cool sun glasses; when he was swimming competitively and developed the desire to improve his performances; when he graduated from kindergarten, elementary school and finished high school with many awards.  Aidan never bragged about his accomplishments. He remained "laid back" but still worked hard to achieve his goal.  He loved his brother and sister. They had great times together and I never saw them fight. Aidan cared deeply for them. His infectious smile lit up the room and he had a good sense of humour. When my heart aches and misses you, Aidan, I will remember the times I spent with you as a proud and happy grand dad. You will remain in my heart as long as I live.

I have started to write something so many times this last week but could not even get started. Today a condolence card arrived that contained the phrase “the pain of a loss reflects how deeply our hearts have loved”. This made me look past my grief at losing a grandson to express how I felt about him. He was a cheerful child with a natural curiosity about all that was going on around him. Looking back over many photographs of birthday parties and holiday gatherings reflects his smile as he grew older. He was a fine young man who made us all proud.
Of particular concern to me is the grief of Kevin, Khin, Conner and Erin. How can we rationalize his departure at such a young age with so much ahead of him? May he rest in peace and know how much he was loved by all his family

Being part of the MAC family, I recall Aidan's transition from being a young kid just having fun in the pool to being a master breaststroker with great techniques. It seems like yesterday that I was sitting poolside with Kevin and Khin at Etobicoke Olympium, waiting for the boys events to come up. We were chatting about the dreams and aspirations of our boys. I remember they were so proud of Aidan’s swimming and academic accomplishments, looking forward to a very bright future ahead of him. I cannot believe that this bright future has been cut short so prematurely.

News of Aidan’s untimely passing filled me with grief.

Our paths initially crossed when he was in my Grade 10 maths class and they continued to intertwine throughout the years from his involvement with the Waterloo Math Contests. Aidan revelled in the abstract. He was confident and cool, a swimmer of national caliber, a dear friend to his peers.

Having also lost a brother, no more than a couple years older than Aidan, and bearing witness to my parents’ utter sorrow before this inversion of life’s natural order, I offer my deepest consolations to the Walker family.

Remembering Aidan

Shared by Alan Chan on January 9, 2021

We are deeply saddened by the news. Aidan and Tyler were life-long friends since they first joined MAC more than a decade ago. He was always calm and cool, got along well with everyone and had a diverse interest in many topics. We once even discussed how to profit from Tesla stock through complex options. I was so surprised when he casually mentioned a "straddle strategy" which usually only a sophisticated option trader would use! 

He would always start the conversation with "Yo, Tyler" or "Hey, Alan" with a calm voice (never in a rush). He and Tyler always talked non-stop in the car and even during swim practice, so much so that coach Mike once separated the two to different lanes at opposite ends of the pool and yet they still figured out a way to talk (underwater, I think)...

Over the last two years, Aidan became interested in learning Chinese and many times, he responded to my messages in Chinese!

We have many fond memories of Aidan and will miss him very much...

We are at a loss for words and write this with heavy hearts. Connor, your brother has made a difference to all who knew him and for his donor recipients.  He always looked up to you and was proud to be your brother. Erin, we always saw Aidan as a protective and caring older brother and his love for you was always present. Khin and Kevin you raised such a polite, kind, loving and happy son with many talents. The photo gallery made us cry, yet it’s wonderful to see all of these amazing special moments in Aidan’s life. From Mandy, Deepak, Madi and Paige our thoughts and prayers are with each of you.
