Tom and Maurine Drummond. I remember when Wally threw plastic balls at the audience in church at First Congo. A great guy.
Scott, I'm very sorry for your loss. Sending good thoughts to you and your family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. We will never forget Wally as he helped us select the right color for the first house we bought in Oshkosh...and he always had time to spend with us when we had a question about anything...what a pleasant, wonderful man. We will never forget him. And of course it was great to have the kids in class.

After everything had been removed or sold from the Oshkosh putting green estate, there remained, out on the terrace, awaiting trash pick-up, a two drawer, one door enamel topped cabinet that had judging from the ten thousand coats of paint spatter, served as the base for the paint can shaker.
I liked the looks of it and with a bale of steel wool and a gallon or two of stripper, finally got down to the bare wood.
The top was chipped and wrecked but it was not too big a deal to cut one out of birch plywood and trim it out.
After staining and varnishing, it has resided for decades in the kitchen where the microwave and convection oven sit on top and my wife uses the drawers for important papers.
We've had many conversations during which I would ask about the title for the black car or a passport and the answer has been: "In the top drawer of Wally… where it always is."
He was a friendly, knowledgable and nice man who lasted a long time and has been called home.
My deepest sympathy to you Marilyn, Mike and Scott. Am remembering those opening Milwaukee Braves games with you two. What a fun time it was. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Marilyn, I so saddened to hear of Wallys passing, I don't know if you remember me, but I cut both your's and Wally's hair back in Oshkosh many years ago. You are so right saying he had a knack of always making a person smile,, God bless you at this sad time
I am so sorry for your loss and your entire family is in our thoughts and prayers. Wally was a wonderful man sharing many opportunities with us younger folks. It was such a pleasure to have worked at Tower Paint with all of you. He will be sadly missed but many, many memories will go on.
