I’m shocked and saddened by Walter’s passing. He was a gentle man with a huge heart and kind soul. He loved his sons and had challenges in expressing his feelings for them, but they were ever constant in his mind. He loved to tell stories and had a hearty laugh I enjoyed hearing. His sarcasm was subtle, but it had a bit of an edge which showed his spark and wit. No one could bake a potato as well as him. He was modest and humble always saying, “aww, that’s nothing”. He was a loyal friend and confidant, and will be missed. May he Rest In Peace.

Praying for each one of you at this time that God will comfort you and give you the peace that you need. I worked with Walt at Averitt Express for many years. Always enjoyed working with him.
