Walt was a wonderful man. Gentle sole and big heart! He and barb were awesome neighbors when they lived here in Rittman. Walt was a terrific role model for my son Max and always supported him in Scouts. Through the years always giving Max odd jobs etc and teaching him along the way. He was brilliant! Sadly missed.

Just want to share my condolences with Barbara and the rest of Walter's family. I had the pleasure of getting to know Walter very well during my time as MOV Plant Manager in Wadsworth. Walter was very dedicated, had a great technical mind and a great sense of humor. He was extremely supportive of me and was willing to do whatever it took to make us successful. We shared many struggles, many laughs and ultimately many accomplishments, many of which continue to have a favorable impact still today. Walter was very proud of his family and was of strong faith. It was always clear that it was his greatest accomplishment.
Respectfully and with deepest sympathy,
