Walter, thanks for all the memories. I hold so fondly the fun, adventure and excitement that you brought to my youth and to so many others. You were an extraordinary athlete and personality. Your heart was as great as your athletic prowess. I was so fortunate that your life touched mine. My condolences to your family. May you rest in peace.

Walt worked for me as a truck salesman in his first off season. I always had a special place in my heart for him. I thought it was great that he came back after his playing days were over and tried to help kids with addiction problems. He was a great guy as well as a great football player. Norm Pressley

In 1964 Walt took a job in the off season in the cash vault at United States National Bank. I sat in the cage opposite him and got to know him well at 8 hours a day. Walt was my first contact with a professional football player. He had a great sense of humor and lived life to the fullest and I mean fullest as most guys do at that age. I was invited out to have drinks after work but was not of age but appreciated the fact that I even got invited. In order to keep in shape at least while working there Walt would take a bag of silver dollars in each hand and press them over his head dozens of times a day. Hell I could barely pick a bag up with two hands from the floor let alone press it over my head. Obviously he became a team favorite of the guys in the vault. Godspeed Walt.
