    Walt was a childhood friend, I met when I was guiding at Howe Caverns. Walt and I quickly became friends. We shared many wonderful times together. I will always remember him with great fondness. And I send heartfelt condolences to his wife, Patti, his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, as well as his many friends,

    Walt was one of the great ones in my book. I came to know him when I joined his group in Kodak back in 1991. He was a kind and patient mentor, whose calm demeanor got us through some tough times. I still can hear his little chuckle when he heard something funny. I was very saddened to hear of his passing this morning. I will miss him. The world is a much sadder place this morning. May peace be with all who knew him and who now grieve a world without him.

    Going to miss you ‘Wilber’. If there were more people like you the world would be a better place.

    I met Walt when he agreed to be featured in a story I was writing for the Wilmot Cancer Institute’s magazine, Dialogue. I was so inspired by his energy, his peace of mind, and his love for Pat and his family. We shared the joy of being runners, and I was honored to participate on his team at the Wilmot Warrior Walk. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

    Walt and I worked together at Reflexite in his working world after Kodak. Walt was a devoted employee who went the extra mile. More important he was a kind, sweet man with a generous heart. He had lots of energy and I will never forget his kindness, loyalty, great sense of humor and love of life. God bless you Walt.
