Beloved brother of the late Josephine Vinterella, the late Marian Vinterella, the late Joseph Varuso, the late Frank Varuso, and the late Anthony Varuso. Proud grandfather of 23 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. Also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives and friends. Special acknowledgement to Roxanne Louvier, Gary Deshotel, and Gina Wilson for their kind, loving, and compassionate care through the years.

Walter was a member of Celebration Church and stayed close to the Lord by reading his bible daily. He was devoted to his family. A kind, charming, and generous man, Walter greeted everyone with a warm smile and an open heart. He found goodness in all whom he met, with acquaintances usually becoming fast friends. Walter was also a gifted dancer and a lover of music. Well into his retirement age, he spent much of his leisure time enjoying music and dance with friends and family. Over the years he had many pets whom he loved and treated with extra-special care. He will be greatly missed by all.
