Walter was a breath of fresh air to me. He always had the best prices on azaleas, camellias and much more. I found him to be very easy to talk with and even funny. I sincerely hope I will see him again.

We, at Harrell’s Nursery, were saddened to hear of Walter’s passing. I went to school with him at Plant City High School. We both were in the nursery business for many years. I admired his ethics and knowledge of the plant industry. He was a good man and dear friend; I will truly miss him. Our prayers go out to his family.
