Wally was the reason I came to study in the doctoral program at UC Santa Cruz where he was a consistent source of inspiration and support the seven years I was there. He was "the real deal" genuine to the core and offered such a generosity of spirit, it makes me smile to think about him. I am saddened to hear of his passing - such a loss!

I just received this as we are now in VT. Wally greatly added to my joy during my 35 years at UCSC. He will be dearly missed and contributed greatly to the magic of the campus and Santa Cruz community.

Wally was a joy to know. He always had a twinkle in his eye, and let me know with a glance that he wanted to connect, that he cared. He was a warm, loving and compassionate man and he touched my life. He was committed to making the world a better place for all and he inspired me.

My love to family and loved ones.

I'm very sorry to having missed this sad news; I was on sabbatical and off the grid. Wally to me was a mentor's mentor: always readily available when I needed him; ever prepared to give sound advice; encouraging when I needed to be free in my fieldwork; highly supportive when I faced a deadline for my dissertation. When I teach on occasion these days, I think of Wally when I stand in front of the class and interact with my students, and try to emulate him. I was very lucky to know him and have the chance to work with him. Plus, for Wally, solidarity was forever; we stayed in touch throughout the years. I will miss him. My sincerest condolences to Lois and the (grown) kids, whom I have known only as little tykes. Joost
