I will miss Wally very much. He was a very caring person, with a great sense of humor, and his friendship meant so much to me and all who knew him. He also, for many years, was a certified VSC and inspected boats to be sure they had the proper safety equipment and knew about available safety classes (many which he taught.) Over the years many boaters were safer as a result of Wallys dedication to this program. Wally was truly a wonderful person and he will be missed. My deepest sympathy to...

Always a good friend (OCPS & ROMEO) and good sole. He will be missed!
