His career took him to Boca Raton, FL and in 1979 he and his family moved to Columbus, OH.

Later in his career Walt used his knowledge in banking and finances as a retirement specialist at Nationwide Investment Services. Although not in the classroom, Walt was able to use his academic background to assist clients. Walt was an avid reader, golfer, fisherman, dog lover and he enjoyed cooking for his family and friends.
