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.

Most dominate pulling guard I ever saw as a long time Charger season ticket holder from year one in San Diego. A friend who saw Walt often just sent me an autographed copy of his book. One of the all time Charger greats. RIP
