Walter was my mother's cousin, but he endeared himself to us when we all went to Israel with my grandparents for my brother's bar mitzvah back in 1983.
Years later, he touched my life, leaving a lasting legacy in the form of a very detailed and meticulously researched family tree. He traced down generations from Europe to America, from my grandfather's ancestry to today, including my children. I've included copies in my children's baby books for them to peruse years from now.
Walter also was invaluable, providing more details about the family history, when I wrote a novel based on my grandfather's life, Hands of Gold, a 2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award quarter finalist. So while he may be gone, he lives on in the stories he left behind. And I've got written proof of that. This distant cousin, for one, will miss him dearly.

I'm sorry sorry to hear of the passing of Walter. Walter was the go to man at AFTRA conventions and I not only learned a lot from him, he always, always got me what I needed for our local. I'll always remember his compact, little body here and there making it happen and keeping us on track, in spite of ourselves. He gave many of us quite a legacy to follow.

Dear Family of our dear Walter, My love and deepest sympathy to you -- I have been a member of AFTRA (and now SAG-AFTRA) since about 1961 - and on the Board since the late sixties --- my memories of your dad are vivid and fond - his energy, his commitment, his focus, his dedication to the caring for his members...unbelievable, and sustained over decades. I had some correspondence a few years back from him, addressed to me as a Trustee of AFTRA H&R plans - and again, he was rising to the cause of his fellow retirees - we had some meaningful conversations and I hope in some small way I was helpful. I send you all love - you have so much to be proud of. I'm grateful to have known Walter, and was privileged to know him "at his post".
