Bardwell, W. Wallace ALBANY W. Wallace Bardwell, on September 19, 2013, left this world to join beloved and dearly departed family members, parents, Ralph and Zella (Kelly) Bardwell; brother, Bobby; son, Walter; and granddaughter, Elisha. Wally is survived by his sister, Shirley (Bardwell) Lewis; brother, Ralph Bardwell; brother, Lewis Bardwell; sister, Sunny (Bardwell) Sweet; four of his five ex-wives, many children, even more grandchildren and one precious great-grandchild. Born in Hebron, Wally took leave of his hometown early and lived everywhere from California to Buffalo. A man of many talents, Wally held jobs in everything from sales to a trucking, though his greatest career success came after graduating from Coleman College in San Diego and going on to work in computer systems analysis and technical support for the University of Illinois, BRS/Dataware Technologies and Farm Family Insurance Company. Wally is remembered fondly and missed dearly by those who were closest to him. He was loving and sensitive; funny and charming. He was a good friend and a respected confidante. For those of us who are so sadly left behind, we look forward to seeing Wally again some day. We know he will be decked out in his Tony Lama cowboy boots and Levi's jeans, waiting for each one of us with a sarcastic comment and a smile, a PBR in one hand and a Pall Mall in the other.
