I knew Walter during my 36 years of practice. I cannot help but think of him during the annual Wisconsin deer hunt as we always compared notes. He will never be forgotten.

Walt was a a good friend and colleague in the Dental Supply Business for many years. When I moved to Sun Prairie in the mid 1970's to serve as a territory representative for Saslow-Sullivan Dental Supply, Walt, as the area Manager and Equipment Specialist, was a tremendous help and encouragement to my endeavor. His expertise, cordial greeting, friendliness, honesty, infectious smile and sense of humor made him welcome in dental offices throughout Southwestern Wisconsin. Accordingly, Walt opened many doors of opportunity as he introduced me to the dentists he knew. Over the years, the close relationships that he had with the Dentists continued to enhance my efforts in the territory. I will always be grateful for the important role Walt played in the success of my career in the dental supply business. After we both retired, Walt and I would occasionally see each other at McDonald's restaurant or at the Prairie Athletic club. Walt never seemed to change! Always a cordial greeting, friendly smile, laugh, honest reflection about something...just Walt being Walt. He was a good man! He will be greatly missed!

Dear Mike and family, Your Dad was a GREAT GUY! I'm sure you know this but he helped me 35 years ago to get started in my dental practice. He made sure I had what I needed but made sure I didn't get things that would put me behind the "8" ball as I started out. He helped with designing the remodel of the building in Cassville and made sure everything worked so as I started my dental career I at least looked the part. He came back over the years and saw my practice grow and even helped again in 1989 when I built a 2500 sq ft building. Again he helped me find a way to make this work without getting me too far in debt. I hoped he enjoyed his retirement with playing golf and hunting. Thank You for sharing him with me! Tom and Agnes Hughes

I don't recall ever hearing Uncle Wally raise his voice. He had a quiet strength. My last conversation with Uncle Wally was how proud he was of his kids. God Bless Susie, Nancy, & Mike.

I first met Walt in 1976 while still in dental school at Marquette. In the latter part of the 80's we were both involved in a unique dental enterprise where I saw him regularly. Always honest, and always a gentleman...that's what comes to mind when I think of Walt. We always enjoyed sharing deer hunting stories. How fitting that his last earthly trip was to his deer cabin with his son. I'm sure Walt would have not wanted it any other way. My sincere sympathy to the family on your loss. He will be missed by many. Bryan Wierwill, DDS Verona, WI
