Working with Wally in AGEC was an honor and I truly admired him for all he did for everyone he came in contact with. My heart goes out to Jean, as well as the faculty and staff who knew him and will miss him. Wally was one in a million, and a friend.

Dear Jean, I am really saddened by the news of the passing of your beloved husband, Wally. I was one of his graduate students for almost five years and graduated in the Spring'15. Wally was like a second father to me and the one-to-go to when I needed advice in my personal career, even after graduating. But not only that, he was a great mentor whose memory will stay with me. Please accept my sincere condolences to you and the Tyner family. May he rest in peace. Yours truly, Ismail

Jean, please accept our condolences for your loss. I appreciated Wally translating some letters received by us, written in French, for Ruth and I in 1989, a very neighborly gesture.

Hi Jean and family, I worked with Wally in Ag Econ at Purdue for 3 years in 1990-93. I was a technical writer and editor and worked with Wally on the department's newsletter. I also worked with 2 other professors, but I remember Wally as always available and helpful when I needed to talk to him about a project. I wish you all peace and strength. Remember that his love will always be with you. You're all in my thoughts and prayers as you walk through this passage. May God bless you! Kathy Heaphy
