He is also survived by his best friend and pal, his dog, Boo Boo. He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, 1 daughter, 2 brothers 2 sisters and 3 great grandchildren.
Walter was a carpenter by trade. He could build you a house from the ground up. He loved to make furniture and gadgets for family and friends. He was a Scout Master of Boy Scout Troop #47 in Winchester with meetings at the Calvary Brethren Church on 522 South. He was a lifetime member of the Winchester Horseshoe Club. Walter was a member of the Winchester Moose Lodge #1283 and the Eagle’s Club Aerie #824. He was a fun-loving person, who loved fishing, watching football, especially his favorite team the Dallas Cowboys, and bowling on the Friday night League at Northside Lanes with his wife and friends. If you could not find him doing one of these activities just check out back in his workshop, there was sure to be a new masterpiece being created. He had great charisma, if he met a stranger they soon became a friend.
