Dear Walt's Family,

I worked with Walt at CVPS in CIC and then he worked with Tim at GMP reading meters. Nicest guy ever, always had a smile and something nice to say. We would meet at the Tunbridge fair every year to share stories, quiet time and an Apple Crisp...

He was very proud of his family and spoke of them often.

He will be missed and we will always remember during the Red Sox games..


XC skiing forever...... I will miss my encounters with Walt on the trails of Mt Top Inn. A very kind-spirited and caring person indeed.


My thoughts and prayers go out to Walt's family. I will miss you Walt, from having a chat where every we bumped into each other to serving you your mile high Maple Creamee in a Dish please. We will miss looking for you at every event we have at the Maple Sugar House, waiting to holler your name as you come in the doors. Since I was a kid I have looked up to you. You will be missed profoundly kind man.
