Walter was one of my favorite cousins. Our mothers had several siblings living within 100 mile radius. We got together often and were close to our cousins. Walter loved Spike Jones and had all of his records. We spent hour after hour listening to them and laughing at Spike Jones’ antics and “beetle bomb.” I shall miss him terribly.

Kathy, Paul and Todd,

The girls and I share your sorrow. There was nothing your Dad loved more than his children and grandchildren. Thankfully, you have a lifetime of wonderful memories to give you peace and comfort. Thinking of you and keeping you all in my prayers.

Dear Family and Friends: To Kathy, Paul and Todd

May we say that your Dad will be missed a great deal. When we heard of his passing, we shed tears for all – but also remembered how sweet Uncle Walt was during our lives.

God bless everyone and Walt.
