Walter was a “Jack of all trades”.

He enjoyed barbequing with loved ones, learning about history, spending time with family and friends, playing golf and setting off fireworks. He loved listening to and making music, even though he was not very good at it! He had a creative spirit, used to draw and sketch. He always had a craft idea in mind.
