You will be missed Uncle Walt. I have so many fun memories of Uncle Walt who was at our house so many times or I was over Aunt Ruth’s and he was there. Skip and I played so many pranks and he always took them in good humor.I remember having holiday dinners and at one such dinner we had his plate rigged so every time he would cut his meat the plate would move up and down slightly. He kept looking at it funny until finally he looked up at my brother and said, “ Okay Skipper what did you do to my plate?” He laughed his big hearty laugh and thought it was great. Between Walt and Dad their laughter was infectious and I will miss it. Thanks for your service to your country. You and Dad served your country well and with honor.

One of the best stories I've heard about Uncle Walt was the time he went to pick up his sister Dora at her house in Oceanport. Aunt Dora got into the front passenger seat and Uncle Walt walked around to the driver's side...only he didn't get into the driver's seat, he got in to the rear passenger seat. He threw his hands up and said, "Hey, where's the steering wheel?" Well, aunt Dora must have been reaching for the door handle to bale out thinking that he had lost his mind. We laugh about that still and always will. It wasn't till these last few years I got to know him better. A good man. Humble. Never sat around complaining. I admired him for his military service and his relationship with my uncle John Sprague and my mother Evelyn. I'll miss his greeting of, "Hey, what'ya say Ed? I'm a better man having known him.

I sure will miss my Uncle Walt! He was the baby of the Colmorgen family and for as long as I can remember, he was always known as Kid Walt. I remember the stories of the trouble he could get into and the fun he had with his brothers and sisters. Thank you Walt for all the love, practical jokes and breakfasts around my Grandmother's kitchen table. Love always, Donna

New Walter for many years Got to know him when he moved to Peter Cooper Village he was my neighbor for a few years until I had to move to another apt.
