Wally dear Wally - He was my boss and my teacher. Under his guidance I learned so much and then worked for Ivy for 34 years. He was funny, witty and dedicated to Ivy Tech. He was a wonderful husband to Ruthie and a loving father. I will miss you Wally! I am sure glad our paths crossed.
Hugs to you Ruthie and the family!

Mrs, Byrne, I was so surprised to see the news in the Journal this morning. I am writing from Wisconsin, I had to contact you and express my heartfelt feelings, Wally and I spent a fair amount of time at Ivy Tech working on all kinds of challenges together. I was the Director of Instruction at that time. I enjoyed our working relationship very much and have many fond memories.I have been gone for twenty-five years, however, in many cases it seems like yesterday that Wally was telling me about his ""Martins"" and what he he had to do next, he sure loved those birds!

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

God Bless!
