He enjoyed mowing the perfect lawn, vegetable gardening - very proud to share the harvest with many, preparing home-cooked meals while listening to some of his country favorites, like George, Merle, and Willie and he really appreciated his sweets! He loved his grand dogs- “Dolly,” “Hannah,” and “Chesney,” watching THE Ohio State Buckeyes football games and Chrysler/Dodge (Mopar) muscle cars old and new. He looked forward to his weekly calls from his daughter Kellie with who he truly treasured.
Walt was very proud and enjoyed celebrating his granddaughter “Tasha” and her accomplishments. He was where he wanted to be - he loved sharing a HOME with his son, Ron and LeeAnn where he enjoyed the wildlife and all that their property had to offer. Walt was a beloved Father, Grandfather (“Papaw”), Brother, Uncle, and Friend.
