We first met Walt when we went to visit Kay. He was always taking us places. He and Kay helped out with our computer programming course at Richland College. Walt was always there to help us out. Diane and I will certainly miss Walt.

Walt was always so patient in explaining things to people. He was a genius and did great things for J&J. He explained how the internet worked, when it first was available for us to use at work. After retirement, Walt built and employed 12 servers, keeping them busy doing things like protein folding (an ingredient in finding cures for cancer and other diseases), searching for signs of life from outer space, and searching for gravity waves ((Black holes), a component of quantum physics).
He tried explaining quantum mechanics to me, but that went over my head. In addition to Walt's altruistic pursuits, he had a passion for technology. He would buy a new Corvette every ten years because all the innovation and performance was present in that model. One decade, he bought a Tesla instead, for the same reason. Walt set the bar pretty high as someone I really looked up to. He was humble and honest, and I will be forever grateful I had the chance to know and work with him.

Walt said what if he was getting too old and got dementia. I told him we would put him in front of his mini data center at home so he might have out of box solutions after reading all those data.
Walt, please send your solutions to me through my dreams.
You will be missed by Kay and me forever.
