Walter was a dedicated member of the Carson City community and owner of Carson Valley tree Care. He was an amazing person, always quick to help everyone around him, and always had a smile on his face. He had an undeniable passion for rock climbing and skydiving. He was well-maintained created a professional atmosphere, allowing it to serve as a location for the Skydive Sac Pro/Am 2015 Swoop Competition, a hugely successful event where high performance canopy pilots from across the county came to compete. He passed doing what he loved, and for this, we will give honor to a life most dubiously lived. It is with great sorrow that we mourn the passing of this wonderful soul.
