Walter graduated from Bridgeport High School in 2016. He was known for being quiet and kind but could make anyone laugh. Walter was passionate about his work for Mighty Bright, cleaning and maintaining WVU sports venues during and after games and events. He aspired to one day start his own cleaning and power washing business. He enjoyed playing basketball and watching sports, especially his favorite team, the Rams. He loved astronomy, fishing, and spending time in nature.

He cherished any time spent with his mom, kayaking with his dad, and watching his daughter, Lilah, grow. Walter loved his family and his lifelong friends, Matt Earley and Lanc Bednar. He was so special to so many, and he will never be forgotten and always be loved.
