Wally was a well known face in Juniata County and especially in Licking Creek. The most friendly and sociable person I have ever known. His absence will be felt for many years to come. I know he rests with God.

Wally brought much joy to our family functions that he attended while my daughter helped with his care. I never tired of his stories and I will miss his laugh.

I trust there is a softball game in Heaven where Wally can cheer and clap til his heart is content.

My condolences to Wally's family.....I attended Messiah Lutheran Church with him and, in earlier years, when he would see me out and about, say "there's my organist!" Wally was a treasure at Messiah and loved his church family and his Lord. He was so enthusiastic about attending church events....we can all learn a lesson from his Christian actions. God Bless you Wally......and may the peace of the Lord be with you always.
