i was in elementary school when your dad played for the white Sox. He rented a place from my parents in indian rocks beach. I was a tomboy. He spent time with me almost every day teaching me how to pitch and catch. Even though I was very young I knew what a good man he was. There's a life magazine article picturing him other players and me growing a huge cast net into the water. I think it was 1952 or 53. From the obit I can see what a wonderful father he must have been. I have no idea why his name came into my memory but I am glad to share my special memories of him with you. mary

Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.

Rest Walter, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.

Thank you for your service to this nation.

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
