RIP Walt ⚾️🌻🌷💐 My deepest condolences to his wife, family and friends, I met Walt while working at Wolverine World Wide where he was a security guard. He always would walk through early in the morning and we would talk, we covered many subjects over the years but baseball, flowers and family were usually part of our exchange. He was a kind, friendly and caring man, he was always eager to share in our “potluck” meals and any snacks that we shared.

I met Walt several years at the Unemployment Office when he was a security guard. I told him my name and he discovered it was polish.
He asked if I knew how to cook the food? I said no. So He gave me a cook book on loan, to learn how to make, Galumpkis, Cabbage rolls,
The book he loaned me had both Polish and English. Good thing. I made he some, He said you can make these anytime, as he said that they were
as good as his mothers. I eventually gave him back the cookbook. six years later. The last thing he gave me was a Pieogi making kit. He told me
keep it for a one year lease, then return it. He loved food, People and Flowers. He was a good friend to my family. He will be missed.

Janis, I'm sorry to hear about your loss of Walt. I didn't know him well, but 57 years tells me he was special to you and your family. I can relate to his love of baseball. He must have been a very good player, having been inducted to a local hall of fame. I am thinking of you and your family.
