I went to school in Vilna with Walter; I always loved his big smile, his laugh & sense of humor! I have only met up with Walter at Church events in Spedden and Stry, and he was always as friendly and kind as I remember him back in the 1960s and 1970s! I can almost hear Walter & Sam Boyko “jamming” up in heaven!
George and I (Donna Kucher) send the Yacyshyn family our sincere condolences.
