So sorry for your loss. I worked side by side with Wally at Armstrong and also lived next door to him(I rented my first apartment from him). We had many good times together and I was shocked to hear of his passing. We had just talked on FB a few weeks before about another coworker who had just passed. He was a great guy and a good friend. He is missed.
