He had opened a business in Litchfield up until the tragedies of war "Agent Orange" forced him to give up the business but he had built a network of friends and was very strong in the community; everyone who knew him could depend on his kindness and his unrelenting generosity where if anyone needed anything and he could help them he would. He accepted everyone and anyone without reservations and was always someone that could always support you and you could also confide in for an honest opinion. He could be hard to anger but quick to forgive and in his many years amongst us he has help many people.

Wally, as everyone knew him, was loved and respected by many and will be greatly missed; may all the Lord's blessing be with him as he joins all those before him in the great fields of Heaven. The path to eternity is paved by all the barriers you overcome, the deeds you do without expectation of reward the people you help and the promises you have kept. Being true to yourself and respecting others will harvest the fruit of life ever after.
