Memories Timeline


  1. I moved next door to Walt & Dee (Beulah) when I was in 3rd grade. Walt taught me how to play the guitar, gave me my first airplane ride, taught us how to “buck bales” (I rode with Dee in the truck;), and so much more. They remain such a wonderful memory of my childhood. I’m 46 now and I still remember the words to a song he taught me while I was learning to play the guitar – using a plastic bread clip as a pick (one of Walt’s practical, but brillant ideas)! I didn’t know Dee had already past. I have fond memories of her too. I’m so sorry for your huge loss. You were blessed to have such wonderful family members….I was BLESSED to have such wonderful “childhood friends” way out in the middle of nowhere! Prayers headed your way. Denise

  2. Walt worked with me at Pueblo Bank and Trust during the 1990s. I always enjoyed working with him. He knew a lot about many things, and was very interesting to talk to. We both were pilots, so we had a lot of conversations about flying. I knew some of his family, and send them all my condolences. Rest in Peace my Friend! You will be missed by your family, friends, and community.

  3. We are so sorry about your loss. Your dad gave us all good memories thought the years. My folks sure miss the times that they shared with both of your parents. You are all in our prayers.

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss, he will be missed by everyone at donut oven. I always looked forward to seeing his truck pull up waiting to here a new story from him about his life. He was always warm friendly and full of sarcasm 🙂 (my favorite language) I truly am sorry for your loss not only did I always enjoy his company but everyone else did too.

  5. So sorry to hear of Uncle Walt\’s passing. He will be missed by all. Our prayers are with everyone. Love you.
