    So sorry to hear that Wally has passed away..
    I met Wally at the Structural Drafting course in 1971.
    We became friends and when the course ended we both went back to our corners of the World.
    Wally was a nice person a friend and I often searched to meet him again.
    I will always remember your kindness Wally

    So sorry to see this. Wally taught me how to be a draftsman. My father worked with Wally for many years. Wally was so funny and kind. RIP Wally you will be missed.

    So shocked and saddened to hear of Wally’s passing. We were colleague for over ten years. He’s such a nice person, proud of his three daughters. We always go for coffee/drink/walk with a few other friends. We share good and bad news, teasing each other, try to make fun at work and make work easier at office. Very fond memories of those years.
    Will miss him very much.

    Wally’s family,
    I was a work colleague of Wally’s. He has left me with fond memories of the pride he took in his work, an interest in those he worked with and how proud he was of his girls. He was a pleasure to talk with and sit next to for may years. My life is richer for having know him.

    Very sad to hear of Wally’s passing. He was my colleague from 2012 until his retirement. We go for coffee break almost everyday with a few other friends and talk about everything under the sun. Very nice friend and easy to get along with. We at the office missed him very much. RIP in peace Wally.
