I just wanted the family to know our condolences, prayers and thoughts are with you at this sad time. Every thing I wanted to say has already been stated by Frank, Roger, and Rich. Walt was a great teacher and I too learned a lot from him. He was always enjoyable to talk with. I guess that is why I also enjoyed our 'old timers' luncheons. We will all miss him. Steve

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Davies family for the loss of Walt . Having worked closely and played occasionally with Walt we shared many memories. It was always great to see Walt show up for our monthly "OldTimers" lunch . Even though it became difficult for him, Walt managed to make it. We'll miss you Walt.

Walt will be missed.

My deepest sympathy to you all.
When I was a young electronic tech, Walt was always there to help me troubleshoot difficult problems and teach the young technicians, when many others wouldn't. I have always had a lot of respect and admiration for Walt to this very day for this reason. I learned from his kindness and was never afraid to help younger or new work associates when every I could throughout my career. Walt was a mentor and friend. He will truly be missed. I pray God's blessings will be upon you all. Frank
