Walt was such a great guy. When he worked for HP, he would come down to do a security review with us. We got to know him really well. Such a kind and intelligent soul. You will be sorely missed. My condolences go out to his family. May you find peace in your time of loss.

With a heavy heart I am

so saddened to read about Walter. His parents and brother were like family to us for many years and Bob and Walter were there when we lost our son. Much love from

Marilyn and Rich Kubic.
