Ravens Tray Walker Get $16K Custom Louis Vuitton Casket

[Original Article By: TMZ]

An extraordinary guy deserves an extraordinary funeral … so says the family of Ravens cornerback Tray Walker who ordered up a custom Ravens-themed casket for his final tribute.

TMZ Sports has learned … Walker’s family agreed to celebrate his life after he passed away from injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash last week — and wanted to make a statement with his casket. So, the family contacted casket maker Trey Ganem and ordered something that would match Tray’s flashy personality … with Ravens logos, an NFL helmet and Louis Vuitton interior.
Ganem (who got permission from Tray’s family to speak with us) says the price tag was about $16k — but the family was happy to pay because Tray would have loved it.
Walker was laid to rest Saturday in Miami.
