    I worked with Walter for about 15 years in northern Hydro and I always admired his honesty and his attention to detail in many different areas. He taught me many things both on the job and life in general. I wish to extend my sincere condolences to his wife and family. Dave Louis Comerford Station Posted: April 10, 2011

    Very sorry to hear of Walt’s passing. was going to try to stop by later this month on our way north, to say hello.

  4. I am very sorry to hear of Walter’s passing. I always enjoyed talking with Walter at Comerford Station when we had a moment to chat. He tended to have what seemed to most to be a “gruff” exterior, but after getting through the tough outer shell, I found Walter to be very personable and knowledgeable about a number of different topics. We had some very pleasant conversations while he was on site. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. May he be at peace now. God bless…

  5. Sorry to hear of loss. Our thoughts are with you and your family. I Merle enjoyed working with Walter at the Comerford Station. Sincerely, Merle & Connie Jones
