The world lost a wonderful man and an excellent gentleman when we lost Mr. Ray. He was a very special friend to our family and we all loved him as though he was family. He will truly be missed. Our heart are with his children.Love , Linda Foley
Delila, Stephanie, and Walter,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Thinking and praying for all of you during this difficult time.
Although I never met Walter, as a fellow member of the local OAEA, he was once suggested to me as a person who might give me a ride to Pensacola to attend (some)meetings. Having read so many wonderful things about him here, I regret now that we never got to meet.
Praying for you and your family during one of the most difficult parts of life.
Thoughts and Prayers in Your time of Loss

"Smitty"... as I have always called/known him... was one of those few special people in my life that I can count as "A Best Friend"! Smitty and I served on the USS Enterprise back in the early 1980's... where we became very close friends and have stayed in touch ever since with occasional visits and phone calls! I thank God for putting Smitty in my life's path!
Thanks for your friendship Smitty... will see you soon!
My sympathy and prayers go out to all of the family and friends!

I am so sorry to hear of your fathers passing. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this time of sorrow.
Though the Old Antarctic Explorers Assn, we had the pleasure of meeting Walter,he was a sweet caring man, always with a smile on his face, I know he is sitting with other squadron shipmates, tipping a few.
I will miss your smiling face......
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
I sure am going to miss my loving cusin
