What a great person. Family all knew him simply as “Uncle Walt”. He approached life with a broad smile and friendly chuckle, willing to help with any task. Walt was a man of character with a big heart. I will truly miss him. To David, Walter Ray, Rick and extended families, my deepest sympathy for your loss.
