Walter was very cheerful and full of enthusiasm. I loved whenever I was with him the way we would flex our muscles and he would smile. Walter will be very much missed and loved forever.

He loved when his brother Nick brought him deer bologna. He liked watching saved by the bell in the morning when he would wait on the bus to go to day program. I remember many days of him and his housemate rocking on the porch together. Walter will always be remembered by those lives he touched. I enjoyed workingwith him and having the pleasure of knowing him. My condolences to family, friends and staff.

Many happy memories of Walter growing up and at Grace Church. I don’t think I ever ran into him that he didn’t have a big smile on his face. Joann Owens McLucas
