A week ago, TheZoo lost a dear friend: WaltTheMan died in his sleep, having posted news of his 44th anniversary and anticipating his cooking duties for the next 16 years.
Walt’s family asks that we spend a quiet moment this afternoon thinking of Walt, and if you’d like to make a charitable donation in his name, the American Heart Association is their choice. I have Walt’s address, so if anyone would like to send a card, let me know and I’ll send you the information.
The picture above is a record of the time Walt and Pachy met for breakfast, and spent time visiting and chatting.
I remember so many times when I asked Walt a question and he’d come back at me with a long, detailed, engineer-ese answer, and I’d have to say, “Walt, what?” Then he’d write something even more detailed — something I surely would understand! — and I’d say, “Okay, works for me.” Hey, I majored in Psych, I don’t speak or read engineer-ese!
The purpose of this post is to let us share memories and stories about and by Walt — happy, sad, funny, outrageous, whatever you’ve got. I’ve got another story, but I’ll share it in comments because it’s a bit long.
This is our daily open thread — Cheers, Walt.
