  1. I worked at Dixie Regional Hospital in Radiology with Walter. He was dependable, professional, and well read. Enjoyed my association with this gentle fellow. Sorry for your loss. May he Rest In Peace.

  2. I worked with Walter for several years at DRMC. He was a great coworker and I really enjoyed his wit and intellect. When asked, he always had a book recommendation. Even though he has been retired for a while, I still think “hip, hip, hooray” every time I get an order for bilateral hips. He loved his family, and he was good at his job.
    Thanks for the memories Walter!
