ADD A MEMORY

Walt was Teledyne's (where I have been a buyer for 30+ years) outside salesman for Avnet for many, many years. He was a great guy and well respected in the business.

I gave him the nickname "Hot Lips" … all completely innocent. And there are many stories that I could tell. Avnet was lucky to have him as part of their team and we were lucky to have him on our account.

Walt spoke often of Dorothy, Teresa and his granddaughters. You could tell how much his family meant to him. God be with you all.
