Wally’s life was always an adventure. He enjoyed many years of riding his Harleys. He traveled to many states, fishing and hunting with his sons and wife & best friend Maria.  

He loved his family home in Wisconsin, much of which was built by Wally and sons and wife. The wooded homeplace was his safe, peaceful place where he spent time watching bears, deer and other wildlife with his companions, Gatsby & Drake. His grandchildren were his greatest joy and blessing, whose names brought a smile to his face. ​

All of us will miss him tremendously. “Goodbye Country Bumpkin” – M.
