He was a lifelong member of the Lutheran Church. Raising his family of six in the Bay Area, he enjoyed taking them on drives to Muir Woods and Mount Diablo, the family also spent many a summer vacationing at a colleague’s cabin at Long Barn, CA. Wally was extremely proud of his wife’s talents as a watercolor artist and loved to show her paintings.

The family would like to thank Karen Huhn and Kimberly Haskins for all their help with Wally. The family would also like to thank Hospice and Wally’s close neighbors for their tender care.
