  4. My sincere condolences to Walter’s family. I knew Walter for many years both as a Conservation Officer and friend and I have fond memories of him. In his role as a C.O., Walter was an exemplary role model. He has joined his C.O. partner Michel Picotte. I can see them and their smiling faces patrolling together in Heaven.

  10. Diane, Brian, Denise, Katelynn, Tammy & Sam — thinking of you at this time of sorrow. Walter was a very caring, loving and ‘funny’ man. He was always good for a chuckle and will forever remember the times we spent together. The smile on his face says it all. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal but love leaves a memory no one can steal, Love & blessings.
