Don Kuehn (1961)

I recall Wally use to be a source of great irritation in gym class.  Although I know he spread his wise cracks and antics between both Mr. Nichols and Mr. Kelley, it was "Sarge" who would grab him and shake him.  Wally would go all limp and it seemed he didn't have abone in his body, but he kept that grin on his face.  This, of course, only made Kelley more upset.  I also went to the same college as Wally and he derived great enjoyment and much free beer when he would be mistakenly "rushed" by the Jewish Fraternities.  He was one of a kind.

Betsy Grenfell (Poling ) (1961)

 Wally was someone who always sat behind me in homeroom (Grenfell, Grossman), a friend since Goldwood, almost a neighbor (Gasser, Hampton), a fellow Miamian and an all-round good guy.  I know he was a bit crazy....but crazy in a good way.  He was kind, generous, and always fun to be around.  I agree with Don Kuehn, he was one of a kind!
