I want to express my sorrow at Walt's passing and my best wishes to the family at this sad time. Walt was one of the best employees ever. He always led by example and was a positive role model for young employees. We were blessed to have Walt as a co-worker at Walker.

I was saddened to hear of Walt's passing and wish to express my heartfelt condolences to his family. I've thought about him often over the years, especially around Flag Day, his birthday. He and I were co-workers at Walker Machinery way back when. I was the first female to work in the warehouse and he always treated me with respect and kindness. Walt was a helpful co-worker, a great mentor and an even better friend. The greatest generation has lost another gentle soul. Rest in peace, old buddy.
