I had the pleasure of working with Wally at Home Depot. I miss his wit, humor, stories and presence every day! With sympathy.
Good bye Walt.
Maybe we will see each other again and you can finally beat me at a game of pool.
Hope to see you again someday..
Deepest Sympathies to the Krier family and all of Wally’s dear friends. Gone too soon. Peace be with you Wally<3
Wally lived next door to me and a nicer neighbor you wouldn’t find. He was always friendly, polite and helpful. I will miss him.
