Walt was my mentor, friend and I always looked upon him as a big brother. Being around him was always like being in the sun. My regret is that I did not make it back to Iowa before he passed. The mold was broken after Walt entered the world.

Extending my condolences to Viola and the entire Portwood family. We were neighbors for years & I can still hear Walt's laughter in my head- it was so contagious that it always made one smile. Walt touched a lot of lives and his memory will live on for years to come. May God bring you the comfort and peace that can only be found through our Lord Jesus Christ.

I always enjoyed the Portwood Reunions when I was little Dad and Walt would always tell so many funny stories of their younger times. Some say Walt was named after my Dad, Walter Kopf, Lena was my Grandpa Kopf sister. I'm so sorry for the Portwood family's loss, Walt was a wonderful person, my Dad will be at Heaven's Gate waiting for him. They have so much to catch up on.
