It is with great sadness that we have lost our dear father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, brother and friend. After a short and dignified battle with cancer, Walter passed away on Saturday, April 3, 2010 at the age of 82 years.

    My deepest condolences go out to the family of Walter.

    He was a man who was greatly respected here in Texas. His winter home for 5 years. People missed him in the pool hall. There are many people here in the park who send their condolences. Prayers will be said in our chapel.

    I was his best friend for 6 years. The memories we had and the photos taken at events where Walter shared his sense of humor with all his friends will help me thru the years.

    I met most of his family and I hold good memories of the good times had by all. Walter was loved by all and will be sadly missed.

    I shall miss you Walter.

    Blessings to the family

    Barbara Lusaitis
    Dear friend in Pharr Texas
