Sorry to hear of the passing of a Great Falls legend. I met Walter and visited with him about 3 years ago after learning he had spent his childhood in DeSmet, SD. My dad was growing up in that area at the same time, being born in 1895. Although Walter didn't remember ever meeting my dad, I was so impressed with his memory and sharpness. He told me how he used to make a few cents there in DeSmet by refilling and carrying cans of kerosene for his neighbors. He told me that his house was just east of the Court House on the north end of the street. When visiting South Dakota that summer, I took pictures of that area, although the house was newer. My cousin checked out the history of that location through the County Clerk, and found that Walter's dad had gotten that house through a gambling debt. I sent the pictures and the story of his house to him when I returned to Tucson. I was planning on visiting Walter again this summer while in Great Falls. What an honor to have met Walter and have that chat.
May he rest in peace!
