Together, they experienced the greatest joy of their lives with the birth of their beloved son, William, in 1986.

As a military family, Walter and Debra embraced a life filled with adventure and new experiences. Their travels took them across the globe, from the scenic landscapes of Germany to the vibrant communities of Louisiana at Fort Lee and El Paso, Texas. Through each new destination, they forged lifelong friendships and left a positive impact wherever they went.

Walter served his country with honor and distinction, dedicating over a decade of his life to the United States Army. During his service, he worked as an infantryman and paralegal, demonstrating courage and commitment in every task he undertook. He deployed to various locations, including Panama, where his bravery and dedication earned him the respect of his comrades.

Outside of his professional endeavors, Walter found joy in coaching baseball, a passion he shared with his son and countless young athletes whom he mentored over the years.
