  2. My condolences for your loss. Walt was a friend and fellow firefighter. I knew him while he worked in the shop back in the 70’s. He was a very nice guy and would be there whenever someone needed help. He was very helpful to me and I am truely sorry that we have lost him. My prayers for him and his family.
