After high school, Walt joined the Army Air Corps and shortly thereafter, participated in the Berlin Air Lift as well as being stationed in Panama and Japan.

Retiring in 1968 at McCord AFB as a Master Sergeant, Walt went to work for the Boeing Company in Seattle, WA and eventually owned his Exxon service station in Tacoma, WA. Forced to retire early due to heart problems, he lived his retirement years in both Texas and Oklahoma. Walt was preceded in death by his parents as well as seven of his eight brothers and sisters.
