Wally was so proud of and enjoyed spending time with each grandchild.

Wally worked at Webcrafters for 40 years and then in his retirement enjoyed baking chocolate zucchini bread and cookies.  He also did the surging on fleece blankets. Many people enjoyed his wonderful baked treats and were warmed by the fleece blankets.
