    Although Walter was a complex person, if you peeled back the layers, a very compassionate and caring man emerged. I worked for with Walter for 5 years, the last one prior to his retirement, side by side. He taught me many things and I am a better person for knowing him. I wish to extend my most sincere condolences to his wife and family. As a fellow Navy veteran, I say “Fair Winds and Following Seas” to my friend Walter on the next leg of his journey.
