When I first moved to Boston From the Baltimore-Washington area, Walter made me feel at home. My dad was a major league pitcher and we spent many hours talking baseball as old players did.

Walter was a nice, kind man. Opening day is a perfect time to remember him.

October 15, 1950 I remember it well. Potvin Stadium, Moosup, Birdie Tebbits All Stars (Rizzuto, Pesky, Werth, McDermott, etc) vs Walt Dropo All Stars.
As a young kid I was brushing elbows with the best - what proud moments for me. Moosup will miss you Walt.

To The Dropo Family,

Walt was a very great man from what I heard from his old team mates. /i am sad to see him go, as many of the greats passed on before him. I guess Walt is up at bat. God Bless.

Our sincere condolences to Walt's Family, including Emily and Family and Zurka and Family. The entire Dropo Family is very special to us, filled with happy memories of times spent together in Moosup with my grandparents, Anna and Marko Gercich and my parents, Dorothy and Sam Matkovich. May you all be comforted at this time, Lilly Cascamo
