They say that bad news travels fast, but in this case, sad news, not so much. Walt and Christine were our neighbors in Silver Spring for many years. Both were very warm, friendly, and kind people. We especially appreciated Walt mentoring and advising our son (who attended school and played football at a local high school where Walt would substitute teach on occasion) after he had retired from Bullis. The other day, I looked at the tree that Courtney, Megan, and Walt planted and how tall it has grown and marked the passage of time. Our condolences to the family and best wishes going forward.

I still remember the day Chris got 'pinned' to her Lehigh guy. Nov 9, 1963 you married her. On april 2, 2018 you joined her in Heaven.Our family is deeply grieving for the loss of a great brother in law, uncle, godfather and friend. So many memories with the Letowts , Kings, and Simons gathered around the piano at Cristmas on Broadway. And so many post game gatherings in your kitchen celebrating wins for Becca, Liberty and Central. Your heart and home was always welcoming. May your children and loved ones find comfort knowing God welcomes you into His eternal kingdom.
Rest in peace. Love, Jane and Dave Halteman
and family

King family:

A lot of fond memories of your dad (and mom) during his time at Lehigh and Central. Always a pleasant man to be around and with that big smile. It was great to catch up with him in the past few years at football games. My sincerest condolences.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of one of my childhood idols.
I remember as a young boy, my father would take me to York High football games at the Meadow. As I sat in the stands while watching Walt King at QB, I dreamed of one day performing as he did on that very field. Some 8 years later that dream came true. I've always considered it an honor to follow in his footsteps as a QB at York High.
As most are aware, Walt had a storied football career at Lehigh Universiy, eventually becoming an assistant coach at his alma mater.
Along with two other York City football stand outs who went on to play at Lehigh, notably, Bob Draucker and Pat Clark, Walt King was a major influence in my decision to attend LU.
What an experience it was for me to have had my
idol as a child eventually become one of my college coaches.
Walt King was a man of integrity ; a man who I always admired and respected.
My condolences to Bobby and the rest of the family.

My condolences to Coach King's family. He was my teacher at Liberty High School in 1966. He really knew how connect with the kids in school. He was a very talented man with exceptional teaching and coaching skills. Rest in Peace Coach

I was a teammate of Wally on Lehigh University's 1961 Lambert Cup Football team. Wally was a great quarterback, an excellent leader and all-round good fellow. We will miss his smiling face at future reunions. Cheers to his Blessed life!

I was a teammate of "Wally" on Lehigh's undefeated freshman baseball team. Those were great moments and memories we shared. Walt was a super nice guy, great athelete and obviously a dedicated teacher, father and husband.

I'm glad we shared a fun-filled last six years here in State College - football, wrestling, and women's volleyball. Missing you. Herbie
