Walter was raised in the Presbyterian church and later became a member of Pine Valley Methodist Church. He attended New Hanover High School, where he served in ROTC. Upon graduation, he joined the U.S. Army National Guard Reserve and was trained as a medic. After completing his military service, he joined the Wilmington Fire Department and retired as a battalion chief after 30 years of service. He was a war history buff and enjoyed visiting battle sites and collecting war artifacts. He loved studying geneaology and had traced his ancestry back to the King of Scotland. He was fond of animals but especially loved dogs, and enjoyed the companionship of his "granddog" Ginger. Walter will be remembered by family and friends as a kind and loyal soul who loved God, his country, and his family. He will be greatly missed.
