Walter proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1966 – 1968 stationed in Vietnam in combat. He was a member of AMVETS, the VFW and the Americal Division. Walter enjoyed reading (he only read non fiction books), fishing and annual trips with his sister to see his fellow comrades at the Americal Conventions. He will be remembered for his signature “Just the facts Ma’m”. He will be dearly missed by family and friends.

Visitation will be held at the funeral home Tuesday, August 8, 2023, 4-6 pm. A prayer service followed by full military honors will be held Wednesday 9 am at Southern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Town of Dover.

Special thank you to Justin and Alyssa for their care of Walter.
