Wally leaves behind his beloved wife of 24 years, Rosalind, 3 children: Jeremy (Marilyn), Tad (Christina), and Tanessa (Taka). Wally was the proud grandfather of Aiden, Janelle, Jenna, and Marc. Also survived by his brother Munson (Elaina) and their family.

Wally most recently served as a Special Advisor for UCSF. In addition, he served as the National Director and Western Field Office Director for the US Department of Health & Human Services and was a Principal for KPMG.

Wally had a warm and humorous nature and made everyone he met feel like family. He loved to eat, travel, play poker, and barbeque. His specialty was prime rib. Most importantly, he loved spending quality time with his grandchildren, whom he loved dearly. In the past, he enjoyed taking his sons, Clinton and Jeremy, to Giants' baseball games and 49er's football games.

Wally was much loved and well respected by all - his family, friends, and his colleagues near and far.
