Walter lived a full and varied life. He always enjoyed the north and lived for a brief time near Hudson Bay as part of Operation Muskox. He had a full career as a Meteorologist with the Armed Forces and pursued his many interests which included becoming a pilot of his own aircraft, hobby farming and enjoying outdoor activities such as skating on Cold Lake and snowmobiling.

His wonder and curiosity of science was passionate to his last day.
