being built in Cape Coral in the 60’s. In later years, he owned a pool service and vending machine business.
Never wanting to retire, he worked until March of 2019. He will be missed by many of his long time
clients and friends. He loved any kind of festival as long as there was beer, food, music, family and
friends! Oktoberfest in the Cape being his favorite! Walter appreciated the outdoors and knew the
