Lil, Sheila and I were so sorry to hear that Wally had passed. I have been thinking about our friendship and work career the last few days and cannot believe that we first met somewhere around 50 years ago. Fond memories of Wally from Garrett/Allied Signal/Honeywell. He will be missed. Our deepest sympathies to you and your family

My sincere condolences to the whole family for your loss. Wally hired me back at the Alliedsignal days, and was a great manager and mentor who was always there for sage advice. I will remember him fondly for his sense of humor and the leadership he provided.

Wally....A man that was so instrumental in my career in the drawing office, starting way back in the late 70’s at Garrett Manufacturing thru the Allied Signal and the Honeywell days. Wally was always there for advice on a professional and personal level and I will never forget him for that. Knowing him was a honour.
Our deepest sympathy to the whole family. May he Rest In Peace.
