Walter Moore continued to be a friend from high school until his recent passing, many many years of being available for any call from the Roupe family. He continued to live his life to the fullest, and had an exceptional story to tell every time we met. Illness prevented us from the funeral, sorry we could not be there to express our condolences in person.
