    I was dock supervisor at Sears warehouse for several years when Walt worked evenings there. We had many conversations over the years. Walt’s life experiences, maturity and directness made those conversations very enlightening and enjoyable. I respected his opinion, sense of humour and honesty. RIP my friend.
