A month late, but I just found his obituary by accident, while working on my genealogy. To Walter's family I wish to extend my condolences, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am relation, though we have never met. Walter's parents were my mother's Aunt and Uncle. His father was my grandmother's (Iva Traver Lindhorst Linzer) brother. I have not seen Walter since June 9, 1967 when Paul Lindhorst (his cousin) died. We are first cousins, once removed. I still remember when I was between 6 or 8 years old and Walter, Clifford and their dad, "Uncle Clifford" brought me a present while I had the mumps and was stranded at Grandma Rose's house instead of at home. I will always remember that special present and the special men that gave it to me.. It was a child's vinyl covered red rocking chair, that Clifford and the boys had made. Walter reminds me of his dad in this picture. You are in my thoughts and prayers dear cousins of afar.

I am so sorry to hear of Walt's passing. I tried repeatedly to find where he was in the last few years. I lost track of him since he left the healthcare facility in Genoa. I had the privilege of being Walt's pastor while he lived in Clyde. He was a very dear church member. Walt and I took many fishing trips out on my boat "Beulah Land." He was a preious brother in the Lord. Pastor James Belcher

Walter was a great man. He was kind, loving and all the way around warm hearted to everyone. Aside of my Grandpa Collins, he was the next closest grandpa I had at heart. If me or anyone else need anything at all, even just a hard listening ear to talk to or a shoulder to cry on, inknow I could have went straight to him. I remember athe few great lunch dates in Genoa sitting there laughing and joking about things that only we could think of. I remember the birthday parties that were always that much better just from him being there. I love and miss him so so much, and though I would love to say that I’d do anything in this world to have him back here with us today, I know deep down inside that he is at a much better place. There was no other man i this world like him and no other that could ever replace him. He was the worlds best father, father in-law, grandpa, etc. if I could say one last thing to him right now, it would be “I love you. Thank you so much for always being the one to brighten up the days and warm up my heart at night. Your the best grandfather anybody could ever ask for. “ Even my kids loved him. He was the first person in the extended family that my daughter warmed up to the most, and anybody that knows Gabi, (my daughter), knows that she is hard to warm up to anybody like that. So that in itself says a lot about the man that he was. He will definitely be missed and always loved enternally. As a message to all the loved ones let please try not to look at this a a loss, but more so the fact that he is now forever with us at heart. I miss him so much words can not explain. -Jay Zetzer-
