Feel like I have lost my best friend. Walt and I worked together from 1977 until the present and many times right side-by-side. He was a very smart man who taught me a lot yet still enjoyed the good times and knew how to make them happen. I will miss all the funny stories and events we shared. My heart goes out to Miranda, Susanne, Pam and, all the friends and family.

Walt, I’ll see you later. Have the stories ready.

Going to miss Walter. He was a lot of fun to be around. We spent a lot of good times down at Big Mikes place in Frisco, fishing on the beach. I enjoyed taking Walter fishing last summer. He kept me laughing the whole time even though I knew he was feeling pretty bad from his treatments. wishing Suzanne,Miranda and the rest of his family all the best.

I am very saddened by the passing of Walter, I remember riding the school bus with him. He always had everyone doubled over in laughter. He was never at a loss for jokes and was also a very sweet guy. Remember hanging out with my brother, Billy, looking for trouble, God Bless

I’m very sorry to hear about Walt // He was a friend and very hard worker hear at NNSY // When I took over the Code for Danny Forbes, Walt was the “FIRST” Person I turned to for help in running the OPW group // in just a few days he had things organized and supported the production shops just like any other job he took on // his skills and knowledge will be greatly missed along with his sense of humor // we both shared JEEP stories along with the time he provided some of us WPC bushels of Crabs // I’ll never forget when we met him at the parking lot at oldBlakely’s on Battlefield Blvd and he delivered the crabs crawling out of the baskets and running all over the parking lot / crossing battlefield with Kim Long in hot pursuit trying to put them back in the basket // then the manager a friend of Walt’scoming out and instructing Walt not to bring us or the Crabs back to his place of business // Gob Bless you Walt

It is with great sorrow that I heard of Walter’s passing.Spent the better time of my high school years with Walter, Bobby, Chris, Jimmy and others. We were quite a bunch of kids that never lacked for something to do and on most occasions it revolved around Walter and his antics. I had not seen him for a time but when I did he always would say something to lift my spirits as I would recall earlier days. Say hi to Bobby for us; you will surely be missed my friend. You may be gone from this earth but your memories are everlasting.

Walt has left us way too early. I feel very blessed to have worked beside him for so many years. He was a very bright light for me and I will truly miss him. Headlocks will never be the same!!!

Walt was a really good person and I had a great time working with him at NNSY in Shop 03/Code 999D. I will always remember him as a person who took both his work and his play very seriously, but never too seriously. He has left this world way too soon, but he will always live on in the memories we all have of him. My condolences to all of his family and friends. Rest in peace, Walt.

Walt will be missed as both a hard working, dedicated co-worker and more importantly as a caring, friendly person who anyone would be proud to call a friend. I was privileged to have been able to work with Walt for a few years and he undoubtedly left a positive impression on everyone he touched. His courage over the past year does not go unnoticed and is a testament to his strength and his love for the special people in his life.
