Rest in peace Walter - my dad always considered you one of the two best players he ever coached!!

This is very sad news. I remember Walt from our days at Syracuse University. I had a lot of good discussions and fond memories of Walt. We had our share of beers together. We both lived on the eight floor of Sadler Dorm. I last saw Walt about 1975 or 76 in Carlise, Pennsylvania at the Washington Redskins pre-season camp. We had not seen each other in 12 years at that point and he picked me right up in the air in front of all the other players in disbelief that it was me. We then went out to have a few beers together and had our own reunion. I wish we could have seen more of each other through the years, but at least I have that memory. Walt, rest in peace!

Walt, you were generous to a fault with a smile and a good word to those who knew you. I am a better man for the time I knew you at the beach. RIP. We will hang together again in the next life. Save room for me on the sea wall.

I was very happy to see Walter again at our 5o th Cohasset H. S. reunion and now saddened upon hearing of by his untimely passing. We were co-captins of our winning football team and shared some great memories of those days. His profootball fame continued to bring much pleasure to his hometown fans. God bless Walter and his family.

At my passing I could only hope for comments like Walts. Everyone can't be wrong. What a fella! R.I.P.

Walter, you were a generous, and beautiful man with an elegant soul, sorry I didn't have the opportunity to see you one more time. Catch you on the next run through. . . Be in Bliss, No doubt, heaven loves Mr. Walter Sweeney.
(Walter story) When I finally decided to go to school, in my thirties, I needed a guest speaker for a health class, I asked Walter, he showed up and did a stellar job. The teacher refused to believe WS would come to this rinky dinky class at SDCC. He said, "if Walt Sweeney walks through that door, you never have to complete an assignment or show up for class again and you get an A." Sure enough Walter showed up; the teacher was absolutely stunned. That's just one example of the kind of man Walter was. He touched and inspired many, . . .

Hi Kristen, I am Alex Monti Jr, son of Kay Monti. I spotted your dad's name in paper and recollection made me suspect you were the one that worked as my mom's supervisor. And indeed this was your father. My father passed away last April. He is with the Lord Jesus Christ, and I cannot imagine your dad not a believer in Christ as well. If so, he is in glory. My mom will try to write you via email or mail. If you could leave an email address to me: alex.monti@chp.edu, that would be great. You have our condolences and hope God's grace is guiding you through this painful time. My mom always liked you so much. And hope all family have joy in midst of pain. Indeed, your dad was obviously a very handsome man, and hope the ending was relief heading to heaven
Alex and Kay Monti

Always played the game hard. A good guy, a great player, and an excellent teammate. He has found peace. My deepest sympathy to his family & friends.
