MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Mark Walden loved weather, there is no doubt about it. It was his passion to keep us, and you informed. He had many other interests as well, aside far from his 7-day forecast.

Walden approached everything with his trademark smile and a real gusto, including salsa dancing lessons, where his first dancing partner tells us, he was a natural.

"He was a pretty good salsa dancer because he had long arms so, he could really twirl," said Katherine Mendez, "Very kind and gentle, just a very sweet man."

"He let my son come with him to the station showed him all his weather stuff because my son really likes weather and it was just so thoughtful that he took the time out of his day," said Mendez.

"He just brought life to the whole shop," said Aubrey Brown, who owns AllStar Beauty and Barber Shop, where Walden got his hair cut.

"He was more than just a client, he was a buddy too," Brown said. "We was talking about going out to play golf this week, and the news is just so shocking."

"This has hit me pretty hard," said Chip Washington with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. "He was one of the best people I have ever known, one of the best human beings, he always reached outside of himself, to help and support others, and it is a shock to think that one leaves here so young but that had to happen, he sure left a legacy."

"My heart is broken, but I know he is at home with the Father, so I rejoice about that," Washington said.
