A kind and true gentleman, and one that I called friend. Admittedly, I benefited from Walt’s advice and business experiences. A great and caring husband to Marie, and a proud and adoring father to his children. May the Lord’s perpetual light shine on Walter, and may he rest in peace forever.
It was my pleasure to have worked with Walter these last few months. He was a gentle man who loved his children and honored them always. I will miss you. Rest in peace, my friend
Walt was a class act and gentleman. I was privileged and honored to work with him in the Gallatin Division. Many regards to you in you heavenly home, Walt !
