Linda, so sorry to hear about the passing of Walt. He was a model employee, whom everyone looked up to. He was extremely proficient at his job, a true craftsman! Walt was very dedicated, dependable and conscientious. He shared his knowledge with all new employees. He always arrived at work a half an hour to 45 minutes ahead of time and I am not aware of him missing a day in his 45 years of employment! He will be missed. RIP Walter.
