Walter was a wonderful friend in childhood and a thoughtful, compassionate adult when we reconnected later in life. He recalled some of the great memories of growing up in Knoxville in the 1950s and helped me stay up to date with our CHS graduating class. He was one of the kindest individuals I have ever known.
