WALTER L. PILANT Obituary
PILANT WALTER L.
Professor Walter L. Pilant passed away peacefully at the age of 86 on December 15, 2017. Born in Los Angeles, California, he was a graduate of Cal-Tech, UCLA, served in the Army and moved to Pittsburgh in 1963 where he taught for over 30 years at the University of Pittsburgh. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Carol; and their children, Michael of Texas, Mark of New Hampshire, Michelle and Jeffrey of Pittsburgh and Andrew of Israel. He will be greatly missed by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, here and abroad, who love him very much. Walter was a lifelong member of the Episcopal Church and served in many ways. He enjoyed scouting, coaching, and taking his family on adventures. He will be remembered as mentor, author, and a speaker who was passionate about his work in the field. There will be no visitation and a memorial service will be held at a later date. Arrangements by JOHN A. FREYVOGEL SONS, INC.
