Walter was a true friend, always giving and never expecting anything in return. The world is a darker place without him, he will be greatly missed.

You go thru with life with very friends but Walter was one of mine. If I needed help from him he showed up no questions asked
I will always remember the time we all went to the Rockingham race.
Rest in peace my friend

I know Walter because he and my Dad (Andy Willis) was good friends. If me and my husband needed plumbing help Walter never hesitated to help. I recall one time he came to our home on a snowy Saturday morning. He had his Steelers sweatshirt on and my husband gave him a hard time since he is a Redskins fan, but what I remember most about that day is his willingness to help no matter the time or weather and didn't expect anything in return. There's not too many like Walter. I'll never forget his smile and I'll miss his pleasant character.

I am very saddened to learn of Walter's passing. I knew him as an honest and dependable person. He was indeed, a master of his trade. He helped me on a number of occasions with my clients' plumbing needs and my own. I never hesitated to recommend him to family and friends. His strong work ethic always impressed me. His advice was solid. There is a shortage of that type of personality so he will be missed all the more for it. I wish to extend my sincere condolences to his family.
