Dear Dawn,
Back in December Barbara Benjamin sent us an email telling us that Walter was gravely ill with cancer. I have had him in my daily prayers since then, but just learned that he died on Dec. 31. I remember you as a young couple who started coming to the Killingworth Church with your very young children. They must be all grown by now. I also remember that Walt had a brother who lives near our summer home in Maine. I am now praying God's peace for Walt, and God's healing for you and your children during this difficult time.

Dawn, Christine, Sarah, Megan & Robert,

I knew Walt from Lehigh, mostly through an age range about the same as you children are now. Warmth, strength, zest, cars. Those are the thoughts that flash for me. But the overriding impression I have of Walt is that no matter who you were, he made you feel important. He simply cared and made you feel good. With some 50 fraternity brothers living in the house at any one time, we had the normal sub-groupings. He was welcome and appreciated in all of them. He wore a smile when he entered the room and people couldn't help but smile back.

I'll always remember before undertaking a long bike trip thru New England I went out to Westfield for a training session. Walt showed me how to tear down and rebuild my bike and then proceeded to torch me on the ride.

I didn't know firsthand about his faith nor his scouting leadership, but it's no surprise. What a testimony.

There are only so many Walt Tischbeins in the world. I'm sure glad I knew him.

Walt, You were one of the most kind and caring brothers at Sigma Nu. I'll never forget when you gave me a ride to VT for a post-Christmas ski trip. I have been lucky to know you. It's wonderful to read of all the wonderful things you did with your life after Lehigh, but it comes as no surprise. My condolences to your wife and family. Bill Kerr
