Walter was born in New York City on October 15th, 1914, son of the late Irving and Martha Schloss. Growing up in Flushing, NY, Walter took pride in being an Eagle Scout. An Amherst College graduate, Class of 1936, he was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

Dr. Schloss is survived by six children (and spouse): Nancy Marks (Mark), Jane Phelan (Garrett), Wendy Benger (Craig), Peggy Mendelson (Alan), Andrew Schloss (Irene), and Barbara Schloss. He leaves eight grand-children and eight great-grandchildren. He was pre-deceased by his brother, Stanley, and his sister, Frances. Dr. Schloss was an avid skier up to the age of 94, winning many medals for racing in his age category. He also enjoyed swimming, reading, and loved repairing anything that needed fixing.
